Tatenokawa '18' Junmai Daiginjo Sake - 720 ml

Product description

The team at Tatenokawa has pushed the limit of sake by polishing the rice to an astonishing 18%, lower than anywhere else in Japan. The Tatenokawa is a world-class sake with marvelous aromatics and impressive flavors. The silky structure plays out sweetly on your tongue, especially when chilled, although we suggest you experiment with temperature to find what suits you best.

Pronounced aroma of honeysuckle, pear, lychee, and pineapple. This sake is very mild and smooth, light and soft. The finish is clean and pure, with finesse and elegance. This sake uses rice polished down to 18% of the original grain size - the highest polishing ratio in the entirety of Japan. Furthermore, instead of blending the brewer only bottles the best portion of the pressed sake (called the "nakadori") as it holds the best flavor. With magnificent aromatics and a complex, brilliant flavor, Tatenokawa 18 is the essence of luxury. A true gem.

Comes with a wooden box.
