Brewery: Kikuhime Brewery
Classification: Junmai, Yamahai
菊姫 山廃純米 The yamahai of yamahais. Not for the weak hearted. Kikuhime's Yamahai Junmai is as full, tart, herbal and wild as it gets. While it is balanced and very well crafted, know it is a big sake indeed. Eschewing fruit for pine and other forest-like greenery touches, one glass and you will know the nature of yamahai sake. And all of this helps it to stand on its own, as a settling evening drink.
