Meaning: Devil's Mask

Cheap, but not bad sake. Old sake with unique nose filled. Dry.


Unique nose of cedar and grains. Dry to very dry. Crisp. Little fruit tones with rich flavors. Full body. Unique fruity but dry. So some people puts this sake to medium body instead full because some hint of fruity, but it is very dry.

The best temperature

Hot, warm, room temperature, chilled and slightly chilled. Either hot and chilled are preferable. Room temperature is good, but not perfect.

Food pairing

Grilled mackerel, shrimp, shell fish. Something with heavy thick sauce. Spaghetti, pizza, turkey. BBQ.
