The nose on this seasonally released sake that uses a “rose vine” yeast is a cool collection of cocoa, oatmeal, sourdough, banana bread, and steamed rice aromas. Made with the ever-popular Omachi rice varietal and sporting a 17% ABV, this brew is rich, round, plump, and solid. It drinks bold and velvety and does well coming into room temperature. Look for cherry, nougat, maple syrup, Fig Newton®, oatmeal, citrus, and breakfast cereal flavors on a balanced flow, with a lot of umami elements. As the fluid warms, lemon lime, mango, and papaya hints show up with a touch of mint. A full-bodied nama for those who like big things.

The nose on this freshly released seasonal unpasteurized sake is a cool collection of mineral, burnt sugar, earthy, nutty, fireplace, and butterscotch aromas. Made with Omachi brewing rice, this brew is a big ol’ adventure in a rich and full-bodied sake that speaks to those who like their brews bold, ricey, and impressive. Hearty red wine drinkers take note of the large, brash, rich, and vast feelings and flavors in this brew that drinks friendly and tasty. Look for cooked apples, tangerine, tart berries, dark chocolate covered almonds, zesty peach, and sea salt flavors that are bright and lively on the 17% ABV undiluted “genshu” flow with a big mineral finish. There is so much going on that each sip is like a jubilant circus, and each swallow is like turning another page in your favorite book.
