Tozai "Typhoon" Futsu Sake 720ml

This is a surprisingly delicious considering the bargain basement price. Soft, crisp flavors of citrus with refreshing acidity, the Typhoon could easily be thrown into a white wine tasting as a dynamic substitute. For the price, it also makes a fantastic mixer into specialty cocktails. Try it instead of dry vermouth in a martini, or use it in a Corpse Reviver instead of Lillet. Again, for the money, it's a fantastic beginner's bottle that brings clean, authentic sake character for a bargain.

Chokaisan Junmai Daiginjo Sake (720ml)

This is one of the best sakes we carry at K&L--period. I would bring this bottle to a dinner party and just drink it like a bottle of white wine or rose. We need to get out of the habit where we only drink sake when we eat Japanese food. This is the bottle that should prove to serious wine drinkers that sake can easily hang with a great Sancerre or an Alsatian pinot gris. Crisp, vibrant fruit on the entry with hints of pear on the finish. Made with a unique yeast derived from flowers, the sake is one of the most aromatic and delicious we carry, as well a...

Ginga Shizuku "Divine Droplets" Junmai Daiginjo Sake (720ml)

94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Very pale yellow. Complex nose offers saline, herbal and spicy notes, with a minty coolness. Wonderfully subtle, complex and precise, with a distinctly ethereal quality, high-pitched minerality and superb lift. Finishes very dry and persistent, with lovely lift. This is made inside an igloo in Hokkaido, in Japan's extreme north, where below-freezing temperature prevents unwanted bacteria from surviving, thus ensuring a very pure sake. The clear sake is separated from the fermenting rice lees by putting it into canvas bags and allowing the sake to drip ou ...Read More »

Fukucho "Moon on the Water" Junmai Ginjo Sake 720ml

88 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Very pale, green-tinged color. Fruity, vibrant aromas of lime, fennel and minerals, with a hint of white pepper; this one is also rather Chablis-like. Rich and soft in the mouth, conveying lovely fullness without weight. Just a bit aggressive and warm on the finish. This needs to be served with food. The water in the Hiroshima prefecture is known for being very soft. Made by one of the very small number of female brewers in Japan. 2007" Wine Spectator: "Features flavors of peppered greens, with some apple and clove notes.

Polished to 50%, this Junmai Ginjo is made by Kaetsu Shuzo, who uses rice grown on the high plains and pure mountain water of the Niigata Prefecture to brew superior sake, both rich in aroma and clean in taste.

Nanbu Bijin "Ancient Pillars" Junmai Daiginjo Sake 720ml

94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Very pale color. Complex, subtly saline aromas of lemon, lime zest, white rose and mint; also in a high-pitched, rather “northern” style. Very suave on entry, then rich and fine-grained, with terrific aromatic lift in the middle palate. Broader than the Divine Droplets: this really spreads out and melts into the tongue. Finishes very long, with noteworthy finesse. The alcohol here is actually a rather high 17.9%. This brewery is built around the well that supplies its water."

The mineral aspects of this wonderfully crisp sake are the main focus, but there's a bit of fruit as well to round out the back end. It's just a polished, strikingly elegant sake that should pair with just about anything.

Dewatsuru Sakura Emaki Rose Futsuushu Sake (360ml)

The Sakura Emaki is made from the ancient purple rices known as Asamurasaki and Okunomurasaki, two varieties long thought lost. During an excavation of an ancient fort these grains were rediscovered. The Ministry of Agriculture petitioned Akita Seishu brewery (home of Dewatsuru) to develop a sake utilizing these heirloom grains and the Sakura Emaki was born. Deriving its pinkish hue from the grain (which is a deep purple) this has much in common with the wine-based rosés. The flavor profile is strawberries, watermelon and cherry blossoms. So unique ...
