Opening a bottle of Naraman sake means it's the start of a raucous time. Naraman's sakes are always full of personality and punch. Like the bold and yogurty Naraman junmai, this Naraman junmai daiginjo announces itself with a swagger.
This sake is both grainy and herbal on the nose and has flavors reminiscent of an earthy awamori (shochu made from long grain rice). With an unexpected sharp ending for a daiginjo, this sake is best paired chilled with rich, oily foods like steak or Japanese curry. Avoid lighter fare like sushi or steamed vegetables.
