This gem hits a bullseye-balance with a punchy medium body, nice prominent acidity, layered rice flavors, and just enough umami. Kuroushi's Junmai is excellent as a versatile food pairing sake. It's bold enough to stand up alongside a lot of food, but also mellow enough to drink on its own.
Nerd Alert: This sake is one of those that thoroughly breaks the generalization that if something is highly polished, it should probably say "Ginjo" on the bottle. Kuroushi calls this 50% polished Yamada Nishiki sake a Junmai. And due to brewing techniques applied (like the choice of yeast, brewing temperatures, and others) to the High-polish rice, it comes out drinking along the lines of other Low-polished sakes, despite its crazy high refinement. The refinement clearly shows, though! Just to make things extra fun, Kuroushi does also makes a Junmai Ginjo, which is also polished to 50% and does drink like a Junmai Ginjo. Ultimately, I'm referring to this one as a Low-polish sake, despite that, we both know it's true origins.
