The nose on this perfect gift-giving sake is a collection of vanilla, nougat, buttercream icing, mint, and snowmelt aromas. Made and stored in a snow room for 8 years, this brew is a great example of what sake does when aged at a very cold temperature. First, there is no color to this brew, all the fun come in the feeling of the sake. Clean, round, light, crisp, smooth, and buoyant, the fluid feels plump, but drinks light and dry. Yes! The feeling is both super complex, but totally drinkable, and leans towards a mid-bodied dry sake. Look for rich ricey flavors with hints of white chocolate, cocoa, mochi, vanilla, sugar cookie, a touch of mint, and almonds. This is extremely elegant yet complex sake that is perfect for a sushi counter experience, and a perfect gift of aged rice and water. If you ever want to answer the question, “Why do they store it in a snow room for 8 years?”, this is your answer, and the delicious reason. WORD: Delicious WINE: Complex Reds/Crisp Whites BEER: Roasted Ales FOODS: Sushi, sashimi, shellfish, oysters, caviar, Champagne fare, dried fish roe, meats, and game.
