DESCRIPTION: Junmai Daiginjo. Made by Doi Shuzo, Shizuoka Prefecture. Brewed in small batches with Yamada Nishiki rice grown in the brewer's own fields. Soul of the Sensei (sensei means "teacher") is brewed in memory of former master brewer (or "toji") Shokichi Hase. Mr. Hase worked tirelessly at Doi Brewery for over 40 years. He was one of four famous toji known as the "Four Guardians of Heaven" of the prestigious Noto Toji Guild. Doi Brewery continues its former sensei's traditions with this clean, dry, and rich brew is one of Japan's most highly regarded sake. Aromas of clean honeydew rind, grainy rice with a touch of earth. The impact on the palate is soft and rich but not cloying. A gentle sweetness envelops the tongue while the clean, high-strung acidity does the work. It has loads of body but is able to maintain tightness and structure. While spicy honeydew and dry anise dominate up front, the finish is dry with good spicy white pepper and jasmine notes.
