Svelte and smooth, with satisfying traditional taste due in part to careful ageing. Mysterious, deep forest flavour with notes of banana and cocoa. Medium-bodied, perfectly balanced.
Kokuryu Sake Brewing Corporation
Kokuryu labels resound with deep flavour, but what makes them unique is their overall finesse. Sakes with big taste profiles can sometimes be overbearing and lacking in clarity. Kokuryu skillfully avoids this, bringing together rich flavour and delicate balance in a unique expression of the sake-maker’s art.
