The nose on this very powerful sake that was brewed in honor of local Akita fishermen has a nose with lots of aromas such as breakfast cereal, mushroom, oatmeal, maple syrup, marshmallow, yeast, and minerals. Say hello to “the other can sake” that is a very large and controlled brew that drinks robust, vivid, and impactful, with a mineral finish. Round, juicy, and zesty, this baby packs a punch and is a favorite amongst those who like large, beefy, and expansive Nama Genshu sake. It’s raw and wild with a large flavor field that includes powdered sugar, earth tones, maple syrup, warm oatmeal, cinnamon, and persimmon licks that excel in a larger glass. As this sake is made using the traditional Yamahai brewing method, it boasts an elevated acidity level with a 21% ABV, but drinks remarkably balanced for all of that vivid action. WORD: Big and Bold (wait that's two words) WINE: Massive Reds/Beefy Whites BEER: Stouts FOODS: Heartier cuisine, meat and game, chicken, duck, turkey, burgers, tacos, and international spice dishes.
