The nose on this late-spring seasonally released unpasteurized brew is a vast collection of sweet roll, melon, mochi, honey nuts, powdered sugar, and citrus aromas. Made by the Michael Jordan of sake making, this Nama is all things vivid, lively, brash, and raw with dashing shibumi and an electric full-bodied lushness that has a remarkably quick finish for all of that upfront action. Are you ready for a flavor fiesta? Start looking for lemon tart, cinnamon, mochi, white soy sauce, sea water, persimmon, minerals, white chocolate, nectarine, and sea urchin flavors that ricochet around the palate, and find a superbly balanced departure. This immense nama will only get better in the bottle. A good candidate for home aging with an ABV of 19%.
