Tengumai is widely known, both in Japan and the US, for it's uncompromising, burly funkiness that nearly defines the Old-school brewing method of Yamahai. It's the one Yamahai that people will tell you to go try if you want to know what Yamahai tastes like. Sure, there are softer, and lighter, more restrained Yamahai out there, but Dance of the Demons has been, and remains, the umami-dripping definitive example of this brewing style.
In the glass, the first impression is rich, amber color and honey-like viscosity. On the nose, toasted nuts, soy sauce, and damp earth take the lead (with some apple and pear tones singing backup.) In the mouth, the honeyed viscosity rolls in, bringing flavors of walnuts and caramel along with citrus notes, and a little more of that soy sauce. The sake is dry, with rich acidity, making it great for pairing with big flavors and fatty foods. The finish is long and elegant.
Tengumai drinks best at room temp, or slightly warmed. The alcohol content is 16%.
