``1984 Iwanoi'' that can only be tasted now
“1984 Iwanoi” was born out of a long history.
What did you all do in 1984? Or 2060, 38 years from this year. What kind of society do we have? Just thinking about it makes me realize how long 38 years have been.
The taste and color of aged sake change depending on factors such as the temperature at which it matures that year and the way the wind enters the brewery. In other words, aging sake for the same period of time does not necessarily recreate the flavor and color.
The beautiful golden color and herb-like aroma are the result of being aged in a historic sake brewery during turbulent times.
Why not take this opportunity to enjoy the colors, aromas, and flavors that can only be enjoyed at ``Ancient Sake 1984 Iwanoi '' while thinking about the history that old sake creates.
