Wakatake 'Onikoroshi - Demon Slayer' Junmai Daiginjo Sake 1.8L
Wakatake Onikoroshi (若竹鬼ころし) Junmai Daiginjo is an extremely popular brew located at the top tier of the sake food chain.
Its supple texture and rich, fruity profile make it easy to love. Demon Slayer is slightly sweet, with notes that include melon, green apple, banana, daphne, and marshmallow.
The use of Shizuoka yeast strain HD-1 is noteworthy as it provides high-key aromatics and the aforementioned silky texture. Soft well water only adds to the fruity and soft nature and also provides a sense of terroir.
This Junmai Daiginjo’s opulence (rich fruitiness) doesn’t run counter to complexity, however. Citrus and grainy notes, plus a fresh finish, add balance.
