Lynette's Pick:

Kirinzan Junmai

From Niigata Prefecture / SMV: +4 / Acidity: 1.4 / $28 (720ml)

Another great tasting sake from the Niigata prefecture! This Junmai is very well-balanced. Gentle, light and very very smooth. Taste is clean with slight rice tones. Also has a pleasant, ricey sweetness in its aftertaste but overall is fairly neutral on the sweet-dry scale. A little fruitiness comes out and flavors are a bit more pronounced as it warms up. Excellent sake in a fancy bottle.

Miwa's Pick:

Kuro Kabuto Junmai Daiginj

From Fukuoka Prefecture / SMV:-2 / Acidity: 2.0 / $32 (720ml)

This Junmai Daiginjo is brewed using black koji (as opposed to yellow one.) The sake has a bright green apple and pineapple aroma with a hint of bubble gum. The texture is soft and very enjoyable. The taste is pure sweetness and the acidity adds balance like a sweet lemon. This is a great sipping sake.
