Kaika Daiginjo "Tobindori Shizuku"
Hand’s down the best packaging in sake – replicates the bottles used for national sake competitions. The dynamic nose on this “Shizuku – gravity trickle” sake is made up of sea water, melon, magnolia, vanilla, and marshmallow elements. This is a very intense Daiginjo with a lot of “action” in a very soft and succulent delivery. Chewy and dry it has hints of fruit but overall drinks dry with a tickle of umami hidden amongst crisp flavor expressions. It is indeed soft and has a way of grabbing your attention one drop at a time. WORD: Soft WINE: Deep reds/complex whites BEER: Belgian ales FOODS: Cuisine celebrating complexity!
