Akishika means "deers in autumn", hence the depiction of falling leaves and bambi on the cup. Don't be deceived by the cute illustration and format though. This is a seriously delicious cup of sake that is robust, juicy, full bodied and full of umami.
What you can expect:
Aroma of rich nuttiness, juicy and full of umami. Try it at different temperatures for different expressions of flavours.
This sake ages gracefully, typically develops a savoury depth with time.
