Dassai 39 Junmai Daiginjo Sake

Been counting down the days till I can have me some Sugarfish. I know it’s a hit/miss with some sushi folk, but I love it anyway.

This sake is sort of the mainstay quality guy, old reliable. A pillowy mouthfeel of snowfall laden with an undercurrent frosty umami note. Toasted pumpkin seeds give it that slight nutty note and of course a creamy, sweet almost like pumpkin purée sweetness. Interesting, complex, and drinkable.

Yamahai Junmai Unfiltered Sake 2018

The 2nd most flavorful sake I’ve had in my life. The first was in Kyoto so... Oloroso, jamón on the nose, rich viscous mouthfeel with acid balance to make it food friendly and a loooong finish to keep you pondering and wanting more. Winner. — 10 days ago

9.0

Had to grow on me, but ended enjoying it. Bit of a spicy finish if that makes sense. Good balance — 2 days ago
