The nose on this sake that is part of a super unique series of unpasteurized and cult brews is an amazing collection of green apple, powdered sugar, sweet rice, grapefruit, and melon candy aromas. The brewers of Takachiyo are awesome. They take sake to wonderful new frontiers by making a series of sake exactly the same way except for using different rice varietal. You can actually taste what rice “does” to the flavor and feeling of sake. Ipponjime is zesty, lively, bright, chewy, and very jumpy in the glass. It’s liquid energy that is impactful with a clean finish. Look for melon, pear, apple candy flavors with a mild spritz that ushers in hints of asian pear, nectarine, grapefruit, and fleshy mango. It’s a bright and tasty “new world” sake that is solid and lively, and appeals to those who like to explore ripe fruit tones on a fluid that is fun and almost effervescent. WORD: Bright WINE: Fruity Reds/Lively Whites BEER: Zesty Ales FOODS: Picnic/poolside fare, cheese and fruit plates, sashimi, spicy sushi, shellfish. (2021)
