The nose on this traditionally made sake (Yamahai) brewed by a Master Brewer (Toji) who has been making sake at Kiminoi for over 30 years is a cool collection of pecan, brown rice, marshmallow, cookie dough, banana bread, cream, and rice cake aromas. Say hello to a classic savory and creamy Yamahai that drinks light and elegant with a round silkiness that speaks to those who like it smooth and soft. This is a throwback old school style of sake that is ricey, medium-bodied, with a touch of astringency (shibumi) and a clean aftertaste. Look for pine nuts, banana bread, sesame, marshmallow, yogurt, sweet bread, warmed nuts, and cream flavors with an abundant umami push that glides the smooth goodness over the palate. Good chilled and slightly warmed with many types of cuisines. WORD: Classic WINE: Pinot Noir/Creamy Whites BEER: Creamy Ales FOODS: Rich and full-bodied pastas, fish, fowl, and meats. (2024)
