Koshi No Kanbai Chotokusen Daiginjo "Pinnacle of Perfection"
The nose on this world class Daiginjo is a mild collection of plum, citrus, pear, apple, oatmeal, raisin, and peach aromas. Quite frankly this is a legendary work of art sake that highlights how exceptional sake is brewed and tastes regal as if you are sipping a life’s effort. It’s the top or pinnacle of sake making. Smooth, silky, soft, with a dry finish this brew slips across the palate like a princess at the ball. There is an excellent water play that is slippery but with body, and a touch of alcohol that speaks to older Japanese sake drinkers and judges. Look for powder sugar, cooked apples, pastry, confectionary vanilla, raisin cookie, powder sugar, rock candy, and a touch of mint flavors that are subtly sweet but drink more rich than sweet. It’s newly repackaged with a larger bottle size and new label. When warmed it brings forth richness for the daring. A competition-style sake that always wins golds in your mouth.
