The 300ml limited release bottle of sake is imported by Joto Sake LLC and can be found in most liquor stores throughout the Boston Metro area and beyond. Although I find the packaging to be clever, with an almost rice paper label, I wish the top closure was a bit more finished in comparison with the frosted edged square bottle shape.
This Sake with wondrous floral citrus and vanilla notes of pure excellence does not disappoint. With 16% alcohol by volume it surely packs a strong punch with very little effort. This Japanese Sake is produced by the Saiya Shuzoten, Yurihonjo, Akita-Ken beweries of Japan where the pure rice has been refined by 60 percent or more for the Junmai Ginjo level.
I recommend this sake chilled with fresh hot teriyaki sticks of simmering meat before venturing out into the fresh brisk city air for a fall walk around town or perhaps meandering by the ocean with early September’s hurricane boosted wind driven waves.
Remember a little goes a long way so drink responsibly.
