Wakatake Onikoroshi Junmai Daiginjo "Demon Slayer"
Talk about a nice aroma package on this ultra-popular Daiginjo that is now single pasteurized! Look for plum, melon, peach scents in a sake that drinks with far more pop in a wine glass. This new version of Demon Slayer is semi-fruity brew with a unique dryness that speaks to wine drinkers as there is a flashy tail and an alertness that pings the 17% alcohol content. Good acidity meets good flavor hints of peach and tangerine elements in a fluid that has presence in the palate. As the fluid warms look for rich semi-sweets licks of honey and citrus. The new head brewer likes this sake coming into room temp, as there are great temperate flavors and a fatter feeling. WORD: Popular WINE: Elegant reds/Complex whites BEER: Crisp Ales FOODS: Cuisines that like big white wines.
