Review and Tasting

Sampled on 29/04/2021


Crystal clear.


Acacia honey, white flower blossom, ripe melon, and pear with a touch of overripe pineapple and dried papaya. Very faint cut grass and aniseed.


Fabulously complex with mineral complexity and rich orchard and tropical fruit. Green apple skin, pear, overripe honeydew melon, delicate fermented acidity sprinkled with the merest dusting of pink peppercorn spice.


Lightly acidity and pink peppercorn influenced green apple and papaya fruit.


Complex, fruity, minerally with the sweetness of the Yamadanishiki rice balanced by very delicate acidity. This is a very fine and delicious sake.
