The autumn version of Morito's Tokubetsu Junmai: one of the best special junmai sake we have had the pleasure to taste. With a nose of gingerbread, dried fruits and a whisper of nuts, it is a well-balanced mouthful, rich and fragrant, quite dry and aromatic—spicy finish. We enjoyed it at room temperature, as recommended by the brewery.
