Detailled tasting notes: with Samuraï King, Sogen Shuzo has given us a very high quality sake. The nose is lively and delicately scented, with notes of pear and white fruit, peach and melon. Very subtle on the palate, the fruity aromas express themselves generously before evolving towards warmer and fuller notes. Multiple balances on all tones add to the complexity. The finish is suave, with a hint of bitterness, leaving the mouth pleasantly perfumed.
Sogen Shuzo's top-of-the-range cuvee, produced in honour of the Crown Prince, a great sake lover, whose visit was a great honour for the brewery. The best Yamadanishiki rice from Hyogo Prefecture is used, in combination with Okunoto water and the best toji techniques.
