Setting aside its charming packaging, this junmai ginjo sake is truly exceptional in its dry and crisp style. It presents a medley of flavors, including steamed rice, blanched almond, white mushroom, crisp cucumber, and a subtle lactic note, reminiscent of lightly sweetened ricotta used in cannoli. The secret lies in the gohyakumangoku rice variety, which distinguishes itself by being harder than most other sake rice and dissolving slowly, resulting in a lighter and crisper sake.
The Chiyomusubi series isn't just outstanding for canned sake; it excels in quality overall. Nezumi Otoko's sibling cups, Oyaji and Kitaro, also offer exceptional experiences, each with its unique character. It's like taking a mini-tour of Tottori Prefecture and a nostalgic trip down memory lane to the beloved old-timey manga/cartoon that entertained Japanese audiences over 30 years ago!
