3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Carafe at Sakagura. Deep tawny colour. The aroma is full of toasted nuts, hazelnuts and some light savoury soy like character. A lovely chewiness. A little bit of meaty/porcini mushroom sort of character. A touch of light salty character. A bit of light toasted flavour. A little bit of heat and some light ethanol in addition to a parmesan-like sweetness. Very interesting.
