Sommelier Alice’s Tasting Note: Complex aroma of baked fruits like fig and prune followed by grain nuances such as rye and buckwheat. This sake is a full body and a masculine in style (if we call Shichida Junmai as a feminine style) with tropical fruits flavor of banana and papaya with a hint of exotic spices like chai. Attractively robust finish.
