The Okushika is Oku-san’s signature sake and is truly one of the best sake made today. Oku-san has specially aged this sake at the kura until its release in 2014 at the start of its best drinking condition. This sake has a rich, complex palate with layered nuances of sweet spice, vibrant acidity and a long dry finish. An exceptional sake!
