Daiginjo. 16.5%ABV. This was produced to celebrate women Sake store owners in Japan. Light green/gold in color. The nose has wintergreen, sorrel, and honeydew. On the palate, maple, melons and slight nutty note. Delicious.
70% Rice Polishing. 17% ABV. Made with a technique called Bodaimoto which increases the acidity in the starter water. Green/gold in color. The nose smells like a faint scent of vomit (think of those Harry Potter Jelly Beans). Not pleasant but not terrible. Also a bit of banana and vanilla. Much better on the palate with tastes of soft cheese, cream and slight melon. Lots of complexity and is very interesting.
