Five Bullet-point Review:
  • Very “original” and distinctive flavor of rice – very solid
  • May not suit for first timer
  • Sake itself is quite edgy – better enjoyed solely (maybe some nibbles only)
  • Brewmaster is one of the sake icons of the industry
  • The back label says, “Flavor, catered for frequent sake drinker”
