Sawahime Yamahai JunmaiJH177

 The nose on this cool looking sake is a clever collection of honey, clover, lemon peel, earthy, cocoa, yeasty, caramel, and leather aromas. This is a superb feeling Yamahai with loads of flavors that slide across the palate. It is a “feeling” brew, but wait it is a “flavor” brew too, which makes it an F&F sake which definitely is not a FAIL. Smooth, rich, round and velvety it drinks creamy with lots of oatmeal and toasted rice tones that almost border on Rice Krispie Treat-like. There are sweet hints but the sake is comfortable with the acidity and richness balance. When warmed look for a great creamy and nougat blast. And there is a buttery element that makes any Yamahai sake fan smile. WORD: Feelings WINE: Pinot Noir/Creamy Whites BEER: Creamy Ales FOODS: Salty and savory fare, cream dishes, tofu, steamed fish.
