A prominent fragrance, a clean and fresh taste, with flavor deep into the recesses. Truly one of the "Rolls-Royces" of saké.
Each year, after the temperature drops below 14 Fahrenheit, Takasago builds an Ice Dome outside the main kura building. It is an igloo inside of which the temperature stays about 28 F, with 90% humidity and no wind The low temperature means "nasty bacteria" cannot survive, allowing them to make clean, pure, ultra-premium saké. Additionally, they separate the clear saké from the fermenting rice lees not by pressing, but rather by putting it into canvas bags and allowing the saké to drip out slowly overnight.
Got this as a gift for two of my sake-loving friends. One said he loved it and it was refreshingly smooth and delicious. The second said it was the best sake he's had!
One the finest Sake I have evr tasted! If you are looking for the best this it!
Sushi, White Fish
a very smooth refreshing clean and crisp taste with little to no after taste, I prefer mine slightly chilled as suggested on the bottle but I have tried it warmed and it equally as good. A very premium Sake
