Miwa, Lynette, Keiko Lynette's Pick:

Kikusui Junmai Dai Ginjo

Rice Polishing Ratio: 40%
SMV: +3
Acidity: 1.3
Prefecture: Niigata

My pick of the month, Kikusui Junmai Dai Ginjo, is actually a sake I have never been able to try before, although I have seen it displayed on the True Sake light shelf for years! Many people have tried their light, clean Junmai Ginjo version, as well as their big, semi sweet $5 nama genshu honjozo cans. Both are very popular. I've heard many great things about the Dai Ginjo version as well, so I thought I'd bring it in for everyone to try! Made with Kikusui rice and underground water from the Kaji River (soft water)
$48 (720ml)


Keiko's Pick:

Chiyomosubi "Nezumiotoko" One Cup

From Tottori Prefecture. Junmai Ginjo.

"Nezumiotoko" one cup is one of Kitaro series one cups. Full ripe strawberry layer with hint of steamed rice plumpness is melting on a pallet. Gentle powdery texture has similar feeling as fresh spring breeze. Perfect with slightly chilled temperature. Nice smooth finish. I like Kitaro a lot. Nezumiotoko has similar smooth texture as kitaro. $8 (180ml)
