Ama no To Tokubetsu Junmai Nama SE34 "Heaven's Door"

The nose on this really cool nama is a gentle collection of pear, apple, sweet rice, and cereal bar aromas. Talk about one smooth nama! This unpasteurized sake is round, velvety, and almost fluffy in feeling. It’s one of those “feels good” in your palate sakes that also has very interesting rich flavors. It is unique in that it does not drink sweet despite having granny smith apple, juicy pear, and sweet rice hints that come forward as the sake warms in the glass. A larger glass brings out more action and if you dig deep enough there is a pear cobbler vein that is super yummy. WORD: Heavenly WINE: Rich reds/Juicy whites BEER: Honey Ales FOODS: Rich fare with complexity and salty/savory.


(2017)The nose on this freshly released unpasteurized “Nama” sake is a cool collection of blackberry, steamed rice, vanilla, and jam aromas. Not all raw sakes are alike! And this brew is very true to the point as it has very unique and complex qualities that are a thrill to discover and taste. Smooth and solid this sake drinks long in the palate. It is rich but not bulky and has a gentle tail that keeps talking. Surprisingly there is a roasted quality to the fluid which has a sweetness like a sweet roasted corn, and a yeasty play that speaks to wine drinkers. It’s a good example of a round sake that doesn’t drink edgy or tight rather smooth and balanced. A legendary brewery makes a very unique and tasty nama that will have you pondering what flavors are in each sip and enjoying every one of them. WORD: Smooth WINE: Pinot Noir/Jammy Whites BEER: Soft Ales FOODS: Does well with an array of flavors grilled and raw, very versatile.
