Tamagawa Junmai Ginjo Muroka Nama Genshu "Ice Breaker"
The nose on this summer released Genshu is a cool collection of melon, sugar, mango, green apple, white cake, brown rice, and mineral aromas. Ice Breakers is one of those crowd-pleasing sakes that makes any meal or party better. Rich, round, and smooth it drinks fat and fleshy with a full-bodied attitude and a very fun flavor field. Look for rock sugar, nougat, sweet rice, mango, grape, apple, cake flavors with lots of umami and a white peppery finish. Made with Nihonbare rice and sporting an 18% alc content it is a big fresh unpasteurized sake that has lots of pop in a thick and chewy fluid that some say works with an ice cube or two on those hot summer days. This is a great sake to bring to a party or any type of restaurant, and True Sake is the only place that carries the 1.8L bottles which is like a magnum of fun. WORD: Fun WINE: Deep chewy reds/Fat whites BEER: Strong ales FOODS: The kitchen sink from International spice to anything off the grill and out of the ocean.
