Saisuke (Kome/rice) is a typical example of an extravagant Rice Shochu brewed/distilled by a Shizuoka Sake Brewery!

The ingredients were:
leavened rice milled down to 65% added to unleavened rice milled down to 70%
Yeast: Shizuoka NEW-5 (sake yeats)
Alcohol content: 25.5 degrees
Distilled in December 2006

Aroma: ricey

Taste: deep, almost sweet. Tasted like a semi sweet sherry

Overall: Lots of character/complex.
Should be drunk on its own at room temperature
