This smooth, complex, nuanced full body sake is delicious and approachable. The Tokubetsu Junmai type sake displays a wide range of flavors depending on whether you serve it warmed or at room temperature.
The flavors and aromas of this sake change substantially with temperature but remain complex and nuanced. When warmed to 100º -104º F., it is savory and full-bodied, with aromas and flavors of white mushroom, bran, salted cucumber and umami, balanced by subtle hints of banana and white flowers.
At room temperature, this sake’s fruity aspects become more pronounced, with notes of melon, cream and lightly salted cucumber peel. When chilled, the aroma is fresh, with the scents of green apple and fennel joined on the palate by the flavors of watermelon rind, cucumber and mineral.
