Beau-Zone Layer - Kenbichi Honjozo

Posted by Beau Timken in 2013, Beau Zone, May, Newsletter
True Sake From Hyogo Prefecture. SMV: +/- 0.5 Acidity: N/A

The point of the "Beau-Zone" layer is to get you to taste sakes that are different, unique and special to the sake world, because part of the sake drinking experience is the story! Sake has a story in each glass and this Kenbishi Honjozo is certainly no exception. It says it right there on the label "Since 1505 The Oldest Brand" in sake, and despite there being other perhaps older breweries this one has been at the forefront of the sake industry. The distinctive label shows a sword tip coming at you just like the deep rich and full-bodied flavors come right at you! This brew is dense and thick and feels great in the palate. Look for savory and rich sweet rice flavors that flow on a fat liquid that is excellent for warming. A historically sound Honjozo that has taken far to long to reach our shores! 900ml of liquid history.
