Kinsen Sakewa Hyakuyakuno Chou 720ml
Sake Brewery : Aihara Shuzo
“Hyaku yaku no cho” means “the best of all medicines”, a profound statement that we think makes perfect sense. Indeed, a glass of sake everyday keeps your mind relaxed and your body healthy. Pine, light anise and pear are very distinct in the prominent and balanced nose. A soft, dry and even slightly grainy start spreads into a lighter finish with a bit of bitterness and sweetness coming out of the recesses. The acidity gathers authority as it moves across the palate, distributing all the flavor with directness and decisiveness. There is a thickness to Kinsen that survives long into the finish. This sake is a well crafted Junmai Ginjo for those who enjoy a Hiroshima style, fruity & semi dry sake.
