Five Bullet-point Review:
  • Representation of one of new generation genres of sake
  • Sake beyond the existing definition of flavor – very mild and fruity
  • Rare to find and buy – need to go to particular restaurant/bar
  • Rice’s umami is concentrated in depth
  • Nigori edition is also a sparkle
