"Very pale yellow. Highly nuanced nose combines spices, pepper, oyster shell and earth, plus a snap pea note that reminded me of gruner veltliner. Densely packed and very dry, even austere, but with a light touch. Rather rigorous and ungiving: I think of this as an old-school style of sake. Very distinctive sake that will not be for everyone. Reportedly the emperor's favorite sake , and made by the oldest active brewery in Japan, dating back 55 generations."
