Tsukasabotan Fuin "Maker's Mark"
The nose on this dry Ginjo is made up of mineral, citrus, sunflower, and straw elements. A very good example of a "base" sake that is not overly fruity, but has layers of very neutral flavors such as minerals, rice, and a hint of fig and crme brulee. Extremely even and balanced and the strength rests in the dryness of this flavorful brew. A very slick fluid that gets smoother and even more flavorful at room temperature. Think round, clean, dry and balanced with a great rice flavor " truly a sake drinkers sake.
