Description

Dassai 23獭祭

One of the top ranking sake in Japan. The fruity bouquet offers apple, peach and nashi pear. It’s both vivid and sensuous. The initial impression is that of the clean flavor with an aftertaste that combines the sweetness of fruit with a soft mellowness.Dassai “Ni-wari San-bun” junmai daiginjo is the sake that defines Dassai. It is made with rice that has been milled so that only 23% of the original size of the grains remains, this is the highest degree of milling of any sake in the world. Going to this extreme allows the brewers to create a sake like no other, a sake that is the pinnacle of refined elegance, subtlety, and delicate flavors and aromas.

We all know that patience is a virtue, and this sake exemplifies that better than anything else. Widely held as one of the best sake’s around, Dassai 23 pushes the limits of rice polishing. Getting the rice grains to 23% of their original size takes time, but is well worth it. The fragrance is a bouquet of flowers, delicate, loving. The flavor washes over your tongue like a gentle waterfall deep in a secluded forest, and trickles away into a long, satisfying finish. If you like having nothing but the best, you’ll love drinking Dassai 23.
