Staff Pick Notes

Looking for a saké with a clean, dry attack and full body on the palate? How about one with well balanced minerality and a smack of banana on the finish? Looking for a saké with great pairing potential? Kokuryu will definitely deliver those results. I recently drank this at a tiny local Izikaya with a prix fixe menu and it really did the trick with multiple courses. Sashimi with yuzu? Check. Cold soba noodles? Check. The texture of this saké even worked with a small piece of Wagyu as the final course. Kokuryu Black Dragon is both multifaceted and elegant at once. The aromas and flavor profile are harmonized and to best appreciate its qualities, drink lightly chilled.
