Extremely complex. Floral nose with little jasmine tea hint. Fresh pink bubblegum. Other people said it nose with sweet rice, white chocolate and juicy pineapple. Smooth and extremely silky in texture at the beginning. It continues with lovely acidity floral, rainwater. Plum skin and strawberry taste may noticeable. Discover the delicate flavor of pomegranate and sweet potato too. Clean experience on the palate. Strong flavor and delicate.

The best temperature

Room temperature is good, but chilled is the best.

Food pairing

Seaweed salad, cold tofu with ginger and soy sauce. Some pickels, oshinko. Avoid American, Italian, or French foods. This sake is too risky to pair with them. Some people pair this sake with sweet dessert too. Oyster or tuna are good to pair with this.
