Tasting Notes and Technical Description:
The liquid is clear and transparent, exhibiting a near-crystalline luminescence that exudes purity, which is a hallmark of Junmai sake.
The aroma is complex yet elegant, characterized by soft hints of green apple and pear, interwoven with the subtle earthiness of steamed rice. Underlying notes of white flowers and a touch of anise provide an additional layer of complexity.
Upon sipping, Seikyo Takehara Junmai immediately envelops the palate with a smooth, rounded mouthfeel. Delicate fruit undertones of Fuji apple and Asian pear dance harmoniously with umami-rich flavors of steamed rice and subtle creaminess. A balanced acidity ensures that the experience remains light and digestible, never cloying.
The finish is long-lasting and smooth with a final embrace of subtle fruit and umami, gradually tapering off but leaving a memorable, slightly mineral trace that invites another sip.
The texture is remarkably silky, lending a luxurious character to this unassuming yet profound beverage.
