True Sake Selects - Team True Sake Select Monthly Brews of Note

Takami's Pick:

Hikamimasamune Nanakanba Tokubetsu Junmai

From Shimane Prefecture / SMV: +4 / Acidity: 1.6

This sake was brewed with the image of the race horse, Symboli Rudolf, known as 7 crowns winner. Semi-dry, decent acidity and good body. $38 (720ml)

Miwa's Pick:

Shichida Junmai

From Saga Prefecture / SMV: +2 / Acidity: 1.8 / Rice: Yamadanishiki & Reihou

This rice-flavor packed Junmai is from Tenzan Brewery. Their Junmai Genshu wrapped in a bamboo sheath has been an eye (and palette) catching sake at the store for a long time. "Shichita" is branded after the brewery owner's last name, and any sake under this brand name is all muroka (not charcoal filtered). This Junmai has a very soft yet full-bodied texture, and the aroma is prominently banana. When you take a sip, the sake wants to be sweet, but to the contrary, it has a much drier finish than you would expect, with a hint of spiciness. Enjoy this brew chilled, room temperature or warm. $33 (720ml)
