Beau-Zone Layer – Kikusui Funaguchi "Monster Can"

Posted by Beau Timken in 2013, Beau Zone, Newsletter, November
True Sake The Beau-Zone Layer is a section within the store where I make recommendations to the customers when I am not in the store. (See that little Mini-Me doll? That’s me) I usually pick sakes that have a certain story or point of fact that sake drinkers should know and taste in their lifetime. This “Monster Can” is much bigger brother to the little powerhouse nama genshus that get coined dispensed in Japan. Kikusui is known for these little bad boys that pack a real wallup! (18.5%) When I saw the big guy I had to have it, so we asked the brewery and the importer and voila True Sake has the “Exclusive” for the next few months. Basically this is a party in the can. It is a big and raucus sake that is fat and full and yes sweet. It’s perfect for a picnic or outdoor concert, and I dare you to take it into a hot tub with a friend. This makes for some great conversation I promise.
