Kiku-Masamune Taru (Cedar Infused) 720ml
Size: 720 ml
Rice: Japanese Rice
Rice-Polishing Ratio: 73%
Brewery Location: Hyogo Prefecture
Food Pairings: This sake complements a wide array of Japanese and Western cuisine, including spicy dishes and foods with rich, full-bodied flavors.
Bio and Tasting Notes: Nice aroma of cedar smoke with spicy, banana chip flavor. This fine, dry sake is allowed to mature in barrels made of the
finest Yoshino cedar. The sake is drawn from the barrel and bottled just
as this aroma reaches its peak for optimal enjoyment. The refreshing
aroma of Taru Sake serves to clear the palate by washing away residual
food flavors remaining in the mouth.
