Dassai's "45” Nigori is clean, smooth and easy drinking, with bright and pleasant aromatics. The body on this cloudy-style sake is crisp and creamy.
First notes to jump out on the nose are pine and rosemary. Then apple. Then pineapple. (Yes, pine, apple, and pineapple. I'm not kidding.) Following Dassai 45’s witty introduction, it shows some really nice herbaceous citrus notes, like lemon verbena and mandarin orange. The body is medium-thick. Not the chunkiest of cloudy sakes. Nicely in the middle. There is a bit of a savory strain through the toasted rice flavor, as well a little mineral to balance out the fruit and cream.
Dassai in one of Japan's most popular export sakes. The "45" refers to the amount of rice remaining after the initial polishing-refinement. To get a delicious sake with such a low polish-number for such a low price is one of the driving forces of Dassai's popularity.
Dassai works with farmers all over Japan to source Yamada Nishiki for all their sakes. They also brew all year round, in a much more industrial fashion than many of the breweries we feature here. That's why they can offer Ultra-high-polish Daiginjos that cost so little.
