This sake was selected by Dancyu, a very highly recognized sake & food magazine in Japan, as one of the top regional sakes in Tochigi Prefecture. As you can see the magazine has a picture of the sake I drank while on vacation. This sake uses what's called gohyakumangoku rice which is a highly prized, highly polished rice grain used specifically for making top grade sake organically. This sake is very flavorsome, fruity, with clean finish, hints of acacia with a bit of a strong finish at the end. It wasn't exactly my taste, but it had good balance and I loved it overall.
