Ginjo Gohyakumangoku Honjozu Style Sake

Like a crisp water when it was cold and once that chill fell was off and it opened up, the flavors started showing. I’m getting melon and cucumber and a nice round mouthfeel. — 10 days ago

Kubota Manjyu - “10,000 Happiness” from Niigata. Because why not? We all need more happiness right now. 10k sounds about right. This is an older bottle I have had in the cellar for a while so it has lost some of the delicate floral notes and had them replaced with some more herbal tones - lemongrass instead of jasmine. Still clean as a whistle and oh-so-smooth. — 20 days ago

Exquisite!!! So many sakes that make it to the USA have the same rice pudding/banana profile, to say nothing of the really lower quality ones that taste like low proof diluted vodka, but this one is truly a cut above. I don’t often give ratings above 90 points, but this is so perfectly balanced with the nice, sweet flavors that I appreciate in a sake. “Balance” is the word that keeps coming to me as I drink this. As far as specific notes, on the nose, whipped cream, cashew, just a little bit of bubble gum and flowers, and on the palette, yes, it has the rice pudding note, but with honeydew melon, and most of the notes on the nose coming through. I paired this with an Italian pasta dish, and it worked perfectly, but I can also imagine this working well desserts like Victoria sponge cake or cream brûlée. — 25 days ago
