Satomi of Ibaraki

Satomi's junmai-shu(mostly rice) of Ibaraki. Ibaraki produced quite a few labels when it comes to sake, but there're only a few that stand out, Satomi is one of them.    Nice overall flavors, but not something I would sing to the heavens about.    And some how I doubt you'll ever be able to find this unless you go to Ibaraki.   Sake(s) like this are so local and hardly ever heard of that there's hardly any mention of them, not even by locals.     I do recommend that if and when you do come to Japan, try as many of these small locally brewed sake, as much as you can.   Some are very delicious.
