This is the seconｄ sake I tasted at Sugimoto Restaurant on Friday, November 16th, 2007:
Rice: Hyogo Prefecture Yamada Nishiki
Rice milled down to 45%
Clarity: very clear
Colour: light gold
Aroma: Fruity: Anise
Taste: Light and very fruity. Complex. Anise, bitter chocolate.
Turns lovely sharp after second sip. Stays elegant and fruity all the time. Becomes more and more complex and calls for another sip.
Overall: Elegant and complex. Asks many questions. A great sake with cooked vegetables in particular!
