COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Rice: Yamada Nishiki
Nihonshu-do: +3
Seimaibuai: 50%
Notable Facts: Each year, after the temperature drops below 14 fahrenheit, they build an Ice Dome outside near the main kura building. It is basically an igloo inside of which the temperature stays about 28 F, with 90% humidity and no wind The low temperature means "nasty bacteria" cannot survive, and it allows them to make clean, pure, ultra-premium saké. Additionally, they separate the clear saké from the fermenting rice lees not by pressing, but rather by putting it into canvas bags and allowing the saké to drip out slowly overnight, with no pressure at all applied to the mash. The Cadillac of Daiginjo sake is Shizuku-style sake, the equivalent of wine made from free-run juice.

hopscotch (9556) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 18, 2012
Bottle… Pours crystal clear and colorless with few legs, but those produced are thick and meaty. There’s a lot of floral and fruity stuff going on in the bouquet, but fennel is definitely the star of the olfactory show. Full-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and no carbonation. The flavor is mostly smooth - just a touch boozy ; grainy and lightly fruity – pear. Finishes lightly bitter and very warming. Bottle courtesy of landhoney!
