A Sparkling Sake by Gekkeikan
Zipang sparkling sake served ice cold has a sweet nose much like one might receive from a zinfandel. Its appearance is a clear with a vigorous bubbles. The bubbles can be heard with little effort giving this sake an extra dimension to sensation.
The first sip is immediately felt with a champagne sensation as the tongue is entwined with bubbles. The flavor has a sweet citrus meets sake feel. It has no more scent of alcohol than that of a wine cooler although it does have nearly 9%. The aftertaste was pleasant and dry.
Paid $7.95 for 250ml
Conclusion: Light and refreshing sake champagne. One bottle won't be enough.
