Tamagawa Yamahai Junmai Muroka Nama Genshu NA16 "White Label"

This unpasteurized and wild yeasty sake is one for the masculine ages and was made by the Brit Philip Harper and is quite frankly a flavor bomb. The nose is a crazy collection of leather, sour lemon, cooked chestnuts, cream and dark chocolate aromas. Is that all? Ha! Basically this brew drinks like a flavor handgernade going off in your palate and I have never used the word “balanced” when describing a sake with a 22% alc content. It is spastic and fantastic – a massive sake that has sweet and sour tones that includes a punchy citrus layer that just keeps on building. Great body that is thick and chewy with tangles of flavor like a thorny thicket. This brew is not for the feint of heart! Should be called White Flag. WORD: Massive WINE: Huge Reds BEER: Stouts galore FOODS: It’s a meal in a glass. Bear meat, neighbor, yak! 


Prefecture: Kyoto
SMV: +4
Acidity: 1.9

Note: Because namas are unpasteurized, they must be kept chilled. We will only ship out these types of sake under your own risk. We highly recommend store pick-up or local delivery only which you can select when you go to checkout. All sales are final for Nama items once they leave our store.
