The nose on this Tokubetsu “Special” Junmai is a very cool collection of pear, grapefruit, lemon, peach, mango, lychee, and apple skin aromas. Smooth, clean, juicy, and almost water-like this is one of those sakes that drinks almost wet dry. And best of all it’s that glorious word “drinkable.” It’s not fair really, because some brews are just so tasty that no matter the price it’s just delicious and there’s nothing you can do about it. (Except drink it!). Slippery with a medium body there is a very subtle acidity play that you barely notice because you’re so taken with the flavor. Look for an array of subtleties like asian pear, papaya, grapefruit, pineapple, lemon curd, peach, and sweet rice flavors with a touch of shibumi. WORD: Drinkable WINE: Clean Reds/Easy Whites BEER: Light Ales FOODS: Sushi, sashimi, shellfish, oysters, grilled fish and fowl.
