A thoroughly enjoyable creamy & robust sake. This particular saké is not diluted after brewing which adds to its intensity. — 2 months ago


Snow Junmai Ginjo Sake

I'm not as used to the alcohol forward taste, but really exquisIte. Honestly probably too good for my palate, but I still really enjoyed it. Creamy, delicious, complex. — 3 months ago

Kikusui Funaguchi Ginjo Nama Genshu

A little sweeter for my palate, but I realize this may also be because it isn’t diluted like other sakes. The more I drink, the more I appreciate the fullness in all of its flavors: umami, sweetness, acidity, alcohol, and even aroma. Other sakes, I can’t seem to pinpoint too much of an aroma, but this one smells like the Indian market in Jackson Heights when I was a kid. Mangoes, paan leaves, cilantro, and all the other spices, herbs, fruits, and greens at a lively bazaar. — 2 months ago
