True to Niigata style of sake, it’s light, clean, and dry

Clear, faint-yellowish hue appearance with slightly high viscosity. Nose: Liquorice, dried leaves, dried mushrooms, resin, cotton candy, cooked rice. Palate: Cooked rice, liquorice, dried leaves, dried mushrooms, resin, dark chocolates, barley. Body: Light. Alcohol: Medium (-). Umami: Medium. Acidity: Low. Personal opinion: Sake has a clear, faint-yellowish hue appearance with slightly high viscosity. Very earthy and woody aroma were noted, with aroma which is slightly weak, compensated with some complexity. Sake is light, with a soft and smooth texture, and feels slightly dry. It has a weak attack, with a crisp finish. This is honjozo which has been milled to 58%, which kinda explains for its lighter texture and intensity. Very typical of a so-shu; light flavour and aroma. And true to Niigata style of sake, it’s light, clean, and dry. I would choose some food that is light to go along with this sake; maybe some light-flavoured fish, food predominantly flavoured with italian herbs, and vegetables. A stronger flavoured dish might well overpower the sake though.
