The name 94 is pronounced ku-shi in Japanese which also means skewer. The name drives the point home that this is a sake specifically made to pair with yakitori. This sake has accentuated acidity, a hint of bitterness, and solid umami to complement the sweet and salty flavors of yakitori. We loved the aroma of toasted grain and honey on the nose that develops on the palatte to be chewy and rustic. This sake begs to be warmed up! Get a stick of skewered chicken thigh with tare, or with an order of burnt ends from Pappy’s Smokehouse in St. Louis. Find the char mark on the chicken piece second from the bottom on the label in the shape of the Japanese archipelago!
