This bottle is a Sake Gumi selection!
The brewery owner of Higashiyama calls this sake his “Marilyn Monroe.” It’s voluptuous and silky in texture and leaves you feeling a little luxurious. We get bold notes of custard and caramel, and oddly, a bit of bourbon-likeness. This may be due to the extra time the brewer takes to propagate the koji for this sake, resulting in a velvety daiginjo with hints of spice and a full body mouthfeel. Try chilled with grilled chicken parts (rare liver!), tuna poke, and Lyonnaise potatoes. For a bolder, savory flavors, go ahead and drink this daiginjo at room temp. The unique shape of the 720ml bottle is a tribute to the old sake bottle style from Kyoto.
