Isojiman Junmai Daiginjo "Pride of the Seashore"
The nose on this sake from one of the great Japanese breweries is a fantastic collection of powdered sugar, pear, cherry popsicle, cream, banana bread, cereal, and melon aromas. Using AAA Yamadanishiki milled to 50% this is a professional’s Junmai Daiginjo that has the Isojiman touch. Smooth, rich, layered, round, and full this brew drinks lush, juicy, and expansive with a velvety flow and a mineral peppery finish. Look for melon, cherry, pear compote, breakfast cereal, apple pie, and oatmeal flavors that open up as the fluid warms in the glass. This is liquid richness and complexity at its finest.
