Sake of the muroka genshu variety (non-charcoal filtered, cask-strength) is typically only available to brewery staff. This muroka genshu made from Koshi No Shizuku, a crossbreed of Hyogo Kita Nishiki and Miyama Nishiki sake rice, is rich and full-bodied. Because it is non-charcoal filtered, it is naturally lightly hued.
Tasting Notes: The nose is very expressive and robust with scents of sweet and dry rice with subtle tropical fruit notes in support. The palate is in full accord with the nose delivering a rich, multilayered sake with depth and complexity. Ideal with assertive, hearty dishes, this gem will not shrivel.
