Shizuoka Sake Tasting 20-3: Isojiman

Please check Shizuoka Gourmet Blog for all the gastronomy in Shizuoka Prefecture!



Isojiman has acquired a universal reputation for perfection. Their brews are truly perfect, but sometimes too perfect in the sense they would sometimes benefit from more individuality. Fortunately, the Brewery has recently ventured in the world of individualistic characterization for the great joy of sake lovers.
Isojiman Junmai Daiginjo Yamada Nishiki is a perfect example:
