The nose on this brew made using the oldest technique in sake making is a deep collection of nuts, cream, leather, carrots, and a hint of peanut butter aromas. Our tasting notes call this a “very sake sake” and “this is old school that meets older school.” In other words, this is a sake drinker’s sake, and would speak to anybody who likes dry and ricey sake with attitude. It’s not fruity new school sake. Rather, it’s thin, lean, earthy, savory, dry, and gritty, with a tannin-like dryness. Look for coffee, rye bread, sesame, chicory, and cacao nib flavors, with a vein of peanut butter that is nutty and creamy. This brewery is very near the coast, with an abundance of seafood that pairs well with this Junmai. Maybe that’s why there is an octopus on the label. WORD: Dry WINE: Earthy Reds/Nutty Whites BEER: Nutty Ales FOODS: Soy sauce fare, octopus, silver skin fish, smoked fish and fowl, dried fish roe, salty, savory fare.
