Tentaka Shuzo

Hawk in Heavens Junmai Rice Sake 2019

Vanilla and almond on the aroma. Creamy body upfront that quickly turns into a high drying acid that reminds me of grapefruit zest. Lemongrass on the mid palate and as it gets closer to room temp, the nuttiness turns into pistachio. Definitely the best Sake I’ve had in a long time. — 4 months ago

Moon on the Water Fukucho Junmai Ginjo

9.4

100%(?) Yamaha nishiki fermented with M310 yeast. My bottle doesn't make any claim of being a namazake.
Nose floral, nectar, sweet face powder/cosmetics, watermelon, raspberry.
Palate a touch fizzy but fresh and inviting. Balanced.

Very viscous texture, full bodied and fruity. Better when juxtaposed to comfort food which brings on some lightness — 9 months ago
