The best of two worlds

If there ever were a role model for junmai daiginjo, this is it. Dassai “39” is a skillfully balanced sake that strikes a wonderful compromise between Dassai “23” and “45.” It borrows some of the best qualities from each and combines them into a sake with a more subtle aroma, higher acidity, and a creamy texture. The juicy melon flavor has a pleasing dryness that fades into a crisp aftertaste.
