It isn't everyday that celebrity endorsement yields something this good. My first Tatenokawa and gosh... this has really gotten me interested in the brewery. Supposedly a "playful" junmai daiginjo for them, but it's really pulling off some intense complexity here. I can only imagine what their more serious bottlings entail. Damn!
Melon, fresh herbs, citrus, white flowers, yeasty notes, pebbly minerality, textured, somewhat sappy, delicate sweetness, refreshing acidity, long finish. Really elegant nihonshu here. Cool booze. Also glad that one of favourite band's got great taste ❤️ — 12 days ago
Much nuttier than other sake I have had before but still floral on the nose. Nice. — a day ago
Their Junmai Ginjo (turquoise bottle) has been my go-to, widely available sake since I first tried it. With seimaibuai of 40% instead of 55%, their Daiginjo offers richer, fruitier aroma, slightly sweeter palate, and cleaner finish. — 19 days ago
For me, the greatest contraction of the best wines is power without weight. This bottle was significant to me for this very reason. It was the first time I thought of sake as being great. It's really the sensation of drinking it that I remember. Structure and finesse, refined profile, and remarkably balanced. — 12 days ago
Drank over 6 weeks opened in my fridge and it stayed fresh throughout. Richly layered aromas and flavors of chocolates, pistachio, green grapes, and honeydew melon with floral undertones. Savory but offset by some residual sugar. Sufficiently robust for the main course. Really nice. — 11 days ago
On the dryer side. Had it at room temperature. Really brought out the smoothness and subtle flavors. — a day ago
Delightful. Smooth. Served with tacos. Sekar and taco event. Who knew? — 14 days ago
