A Jack of all trades

classic futsu-shu style of medium acidity and umami, a round finish that becomes more expansive when warmed. While most futsu-shu available in the US adds massive quantities of distilled alcohol and does not polish the rice much, this sake is polished to 70% and has a minimal amount of alcohol added, resulting in a sake that is smooth and easy drinking at any temperature.
