Yukikage "Snow Shadow"

Tokubetsu Junmai


Description: This "solid as your father" sake has a mild nose filled with green apple, bamboo, steamed rice, apricot and pudding elements. Talk about a "feeling" brew that is grounded and drinks very well balanced. It's a classic "non-impactful" sake that is a joy to drink because it is so solid and so sake! There is a smooth and subtle richness that hides within a tight and compact delivery that rounds out more in a larger vessel. Take the flavor elevator up for hints of rice crackers and steamed rice, and down for semi-sweet deep and earthy tones including maple syrup and caramel. A light and solid sake that has many masks, but one solid face.
