This seasonally released brew is the “step above” sake from the makers of Manju and Hekiju (Kubota). The nose on this sake is a wonderful collection of apricot, mineral, koji rice, wheat, and nougat aromas. Each grain of the special brewing rice – Yuki no Sei - has been milled to 28%. Tokugetsu is perhaps one of the cleanest, water-like sake on the planet. A “phantom” sake where you do not remember swallowing. The watery feeling and taste is amazing, and deep within there is a layer of fruit tones and a vein of nougat with layers of umami goodness. Asahi-Shuzo only releases this sake in the Fall to celebrate the Harvest Moon, when it’s gone you will kick yourself for another year. WORD: Crystal Clean WINE: Soft reds/most whites BEER: Ales FOODS: Oysters, sashimi, shellfish.
