Sake Yauemon

Sake is the traditional Japanese drink, to be drinken warm or cold and there are so many different taste, dry (karakuchi) or sweet (amakuchi) I prefer the last one. This is a karakuchi sake from Yamatogawa distillery in Kitakata, but I think it start with a sweet taste, grow to a rich savour and then become dry, very interesting. Sake is usually btween 14 and 16 strenght. Photo taken at home with artificial light with 105 mm micro Nikkor lens f 2.8.
