The nose on this seasonally released unpasteurized sake is a nice collection of cherry, strawberry shortcake, whip cream, spearmint, and steamed apple aromas. Say hello to an elegant Nama that drinks more expensive than the price. Fleshy, juicy, round with a little zest, and crisp this brew is velvety with a nice ripe richness. Look for honeydew, pear, strawberry, cotton candy, and crème brûlée flavors that drink wide and active in a wine glass. A nama tuxedo that drinks velvety and rich.
