Dewazakura Izumi Judan Ginjo "Tenth Degree"
You found one of the most crisp and dry sakes in the store! The nose on this cutting sake is a collection of floral, berries, rice, and mineral water aromas. Behold a sake that is built to appeal to those who like martinis. Yup I said it! This sake is so crisp and compact, that it drinks with many similar flavors to a cocktail of sorts. Look for juniper berries, crisp pear, and dry melon tones on a fluid that is as clean and crisp as any in the business. This sake does open up the next day and drinks a little more fruit forward. But on the whole, it is dry and sharp, and does appeal to those who like the flavor and alcohol tingle of clear liquors. WORD: Dry WINE: Clear liquors/Crisp whites BEER: Sharp ales FOODS: Clean and compact fare.
