Tedorigawa Yamahai Daiginjo "Chrysanthemum Meadow"
There are not a lot of Yamahai Daiginjos out there so it’s always fun to take note of amazing efforts such as this brew. The nose is nice collection of buttery corn, butterscotch, cream, and a hint of mint aromas. If you ever wanted to taste the term “creamy” in a sake then this sake is for you. It is a calm, even, soft and velvety sake that has a creamy side that moves on the silky flow. Not your typical Daiginjo with lots of fruity impact. Look for a roundness and richness that has a milkshake quality in flavor with hints of sweet nuts and whip cream. A larger glass brings forth more creaminess. WORD: Special WINE: Creamy reds/Velvety whites BEER: Creamy Belgians FOODS: Meats, game, creamy sauces, complex fare.
