With a savory and complex taste, it is the best sake for wine pairings and is excellent served chilled or warmed.

Served chilled, this classic Junmai sake offers a very fine texture with harmonious aromas and flavors of macadamia nuts, Chai spices (cardamom, nutmeg), vanilla, heavy cream and freshly sliced bread.

Served at room temperature, mineral, creme fraiche, sourdough, custard, umami and apple notes emerge.

When reheated to around 100°F, the texture and flavor develop, bringing out a more intense umami while retaining the texture's smoothness. Salty elements of salted custard, cocoa nibs, banana bread, toasted nuts and minerals are evident
