Koshinohomare Shiboritate Junmai Nama Genshu SE02 "Pride of Niigata"

Four Hot Words: Full-Bodied, Dry, Smooth, & Food-friendly

This seasonally released sake is as fresh as fresh can be and has a nose filled with cooked rice, sweet nut, and banana crème brulee elements. Hello! Are you looking for a different flavored sake that is super tasty and super unique? Well look no further as this year’s version doesn’t taste like last year’s breakfast cereal bar, but rather it has a killer crème brulee attitude! Rich and vivid this unpasteurized sake is chewy, fat and very full-bodied. I wrote “round, ricy, and yummy” in my notes and I think that about does it! It is semi-sweet, but boarders more on rich sweet that is complex but very enjoyable. Round and expressive this brew makes for a great meal in a glass sake, and don’t let the 17%-18% alcohol fool you because you can’t even notice it with all of the fun flavors bouncing around. WORD: Crème Brulee WINE: Rich Reds/ Fat Whites BEER: Belgian Ales FOODS: The kitchen sink!  (2016)
