Kariho Yamahai Junmai Chokarakuchi 720ml
This sake is a lesson on how transformative a change in temperature can affect the enjoyment of some styles. Dare to drink it chilled and you will be affronted with very strong acidity that masks the nuances of this sake. Warmed to 40-50c this sake emerges from its cocoon. Although super dry you can taste the sweet rice character of Miyamanishiki and Akinosei mixed with some mild spice, mandarin and umami. The palate is broad with a richness that finishes short and clean.
An old school dry yamahai that brings back memories of a smoke filled izakaya, grilled mackerel and a room filled with retired salarymen talking about "Back in the day..."
For lovers of warm sake.
