Nihonsakari Nama Genshu Daiginjo Draft Sake’s cheaper brother.
I grade sake by its aroma. The stronger its aroma, the better. I also take its price into grading. If something is way too expensive, that’s going to affect its grading negatively unless it has got a God-tier aroma or something to offset its price.
I also take its taste into account although it’s not a significant factor. But, if something tastes unique in a positive way, then bonus points.

This sake is exactly a buck cheaper than Nihonsakari Nama Genshu Daiginjo Draft Sake. It comes in the same type of a can but has a white / silver texture.
I really do like the blue one; I’ve placed it in my top 5 and stands at 3rd. How about this one though? Well –
Yes, it is a buck cheaper. But saving a buck ain’t worth the downgrade. The blue one is, at least to me, miles better. This one has a salty taste which is something I generally dislike. But it’s only mild, so it is acceptable.
Still, 10 out of 10, I’d go for the blue one. The aroma and taste is just so much better that there is no point in this.
Regardless, on its own, it IS decent.
