Sudo Honke Kakunko Junmai Daiginjo Nama Sake, 720 ml
A masterpiece of junmai daiginjo.
Remember your first junmai daiginjo sake and the delightful surprise of discovering the delicate aromas, clean flavour, velvety touch and brisk finish? We think if there's one sake around to recapture the feeling of that first experience, it's Sudo Honke's exemplar sake, 'Kakunko'. Like the brewery's 'Yamawatari' sake, this sake has been made from high-quality Kamenoo-Koshihikari rice milled to just 27% of its original size, so that only the pure starch core is used (standard sake is typically made with rice milled to 70% and daiginjo, the highest grade there is, with rice milled to 50%). Best enjoyed chilled by itself. Like the 'Yamawatari', this sake has a dry, crisp finish, though softer and alive with more complex aromas.
