Determined to maintain the culture of wooden barrel brewing for the next 100 years, Imayotsukasa Sake Brewery commissioned craftsmen to build a pair of new 4,000-liter-class wooden barrels. The sake brewed in those barrels has been named “Hitoto Kito Hitotoki” —Japanese words meaning “human, wood and moment.” A unique offering which has been fermented in a traditional wooden sake tank. This lends vanilla and cedar notes, on top of straw and fragrant mushrooms. A slight pleasant astringency can be found on the palette, and the flavors are gentle and calming.
Nice balance of sweet aroma, a little wood taste and astringency. Gentle umami, nuttiness and sourness.

Tried it at Sake On-nomi #29 and loved it, so gifting a sake lover!
Not bad not great
A bit sweet more than dry. Easy to drink, not very complex.
Light and refreshing, beautiful bottle and sake.
