Sake: SAKEMOTO - Premium Junmai Sake

Always wanted to try some really good sake, and thanks to SakeOne (an American sake importer and brewer), I can say I've had something really delicious from the sake realm.

SakeMoto is a sake imported from Japan and crafted with rice from the Yamaguchi region, and brewed with mountain-sourced water from the Nada region. Not being much of a Japan-o-phile, this all means "nada" to me, but it sounds good, anyway, being all pure and natural.

Getting down to the tasting, SakeMoto pours, naturally, clean and clear. The aroma is slightly fruity and even wine-like. The taste is also light, with a hint of sweet fruitiness (again, wine comparisons abound). It all concludes with a dry, warming finish. 
SakeMoto is a subtle and very tasty sake, easy to sip and enjoy. It's a modest (and wine-caliber) 14.7% ABV, and retails in the USA for about $11 per 720mL bottle. I say, pick this one up (it's available in all states, as well as Canada, Mexico, South America, and the Caribbean). I will definitely be having SakeMoto again!

Thanx to Skye Morgan and Charles Communications for the opportunity to try this one!
