Otokoyama Junmai Daiginjo "Man's Mountain"
Talk about an elegant nose filled sweet rice, white chocolate, and juicy pineapple. Welcome to one of the preeminent Junmai Daiginjo in the history of premium sakes. Otokoyama is a silky walk of plum skin and straw flavors that fills the mouth with a velvety push that ends so quickly, that it makes you wonder if you have already swallowed. There are many levels to this brew, and at each floor you will discover delicate flavors such as pomegranate, minerals, and sweet potatoes. Balance is the theme of each sip, as all the elements work in harmony to create more than just a sip of sake – you taste history itself. A special sake for those special occasions.
