Wakatake Oniotome Sachi Hiyaoroshi "Demon Girl Sachi"
The nose on this specially released sake is an intriguing collection of steamed rice, straw, toast, butter, and snow melt aromas. Smooth, light, sweet and savory this is one of those sake when you can really isolate the water in each sip, which makes this both refreshing and gentle. In a sense, this can be considered a comfort sake, because it is so comfy in the palate and layered with gentle flavors. Look for chocolate, nougat, flan, rice custard, sugar cakes, and relaxed Cinnabon flavors that slide around on a slick flow. A sake that is juicy and watery and so soft that you almost forget that you are swallowing. WORD: Smooth WINE: Creamy Reds/Gentle Whites BEER: Light ales FOODS: Sushi, sashimi, grilled fish, tofu, starchy items.
