Five Bullet-point Review:
- Limited edition – sells out as soon as it comes out to the market.
- Contains nigori – sediment.
- Sake produced at the eastern edge of Hokkaido.
- The brewer is not even incorporated – very small family run business and 80-90% of products are consumed locally – rarely make it to other parts of Japan.
- Smooth and silky.
