Tasting Notes

Product Notes
To earn the Daiginjo distinction, the pinnacle of a Sake maker’s achievement, the Sake must be brewed from rice that has been milled down to at least 50 percent of its original volume. Nobu’s TK40 is polished down to 40 percent, resulting in a truly elegant brew. It is crafted from Koshi-Tanrei rice, a rare hybrid grown only in the Niigata district. Beautiful on the nose, TK40 is creamy, delicate, and perfectly balanced.
