W by Watanabe Shuzouten is Hourai's second label. W has 3 meanings; Watanabe, World & Warai (Laughter). Japanese Comedy TV is played to the fermentation tanks so that the sake yeast is happy, the brewery staff are happy, and the customers are happy. Although written as a Junmai-shu, this sake qualifies as a Junmai Daiginjo as the rice used to make this sake is polished to 50% .
Aromas of oats, cereals and a hint of fruit Deep, quiet and umami. Taste like a cross between a junmai and ginjo flavour profile. Quite unique!
