The brewery master uses the best 50% of the polished rice to create this skillful sake with a rich flavour for special celebration. The patterns of treasures on the sake has been passed down from generations signifying good luck.
I find this sake bottle very charming, each charm on the label describes a certain important element of the sake brewery. It does add to the experience of sake tasting.
Nice fragrant and simply delicious sake. Went well with our dishes of grilled chicken and prawns.
Love how this sake taste every time I drink it:) Aromatic and complex yet pleasant.
Happy ending to a challenging but fulfilling week with the companion of a Kanemasu Junmai Daiginjo Treasure Black. I find this sake bottle very charming, each charm on the label describes a certain important element of the sake brewery. It does add to the experience of sake tasting.

Ginjo-ka appears to be absent, less some hints of fresh pear. Notes of oak, cereals, malt, fresh cream, custard, and some earthiness. Palate: Notes of custard, cereals, malt, cream, yoghurt, oak, with hints of vanilla and some earthiness. Body: Medium. Alcohol: Medium (+). Umami: Medium (-). Acidity: Low Personal opinion: Sake is typical of Niigata style; dry, but with some depth of complexity. From the nose and palate, it seems to be leaning a bit more towards the Junmai side. For a Junmai Daiginjo, it felt a little heavier on the body and alcohol, as though it’s a Genshu. Very keen to see how it’ll pair with food! Side note: Maybe I should have tried this with the Junmai glass instead.
Good acidity, rich and tasty!
