Asahi-shuzo - Kubota Manju Junmai Daiginjo Sake (1.80L)
Kubota Manju is a classic junmai daiginjo sake. While it’s slightly less aromatic than an average junmai daiginjo, it’s got all the attributes: fruity aroma, mellow easy to drink taste, balanced acidity and subdued sweetness. For the koji starter, Kubota uses 50% polished Gohyakumangoku rice, while for the mash it’s 33% polished local rice from Niigata. Kubota Manju has a subtle but complex aroma with a prominent melon flavour at first. The more you drink it, you start recognising other notes like peach, honey, toffee and some dairy. If you go even deeper, you will smell a bit wilder aromas like pepper, nuts and even a bit of stone. The taste is not that intensive with a lot of mellow overtones, some bitterness and medium sweetness. The acidity is very well balanced, the texture is creamy while the finish is very smooth.
