The nose on this limited series of Nama sake is a cool collection of rice candy, butterscotch, sandalwood, nougat, and chicken broth aromas. What a unique and tasty sake that uses a very ancient rice varietal that is not used too much today. At first, the brew tastes savory and rich then it morphs into deep fruit tones as the fluid warms in the glass. Smooth, round, and with a quick finish there is a touch of zestiness but the overall drinking experience is rich and dry. Very upfront flavor-wise look for brown sugar, white chocolate, peaches ’n cream, and a deep savory quality that turns to marshmallow as you warm it. The uniqueness of this sake will not be lost on the sake enthusiasts, and first timers will enjoy the deep fruit tones in a Nama format. WORD: Unique WINE: Rich reds/Creamy Whites BEER: Creamy Ales FOODS: Salty, savory, greasy, and fried fare.
