New Store Arrivals - The First Spring Nama Flight and More!
Again, please note that these sakes are extremely limited and will only be on the shelves for a short while. So get them while you can, because it will be another long year before they come back. And lastly, I have made a conscious decision to not apply my specific reviews for these sakes in the this issue as - after so many years of doing - I have came to realize that nama-zake shifts and changes in the bottle at a far greater rate than pasteurized sakes. This means that to write the best review I would have to update it almost weekly. Some of these sakes will indeed taste different by the time they leave the store and that is the way of the nama world!
