Beau-Zone Layer - Otokoyama Fukkoshu Junmai Genshu

Otokoyam Fukkoshu Junmai Genshu

From Hokkaido Prefecture. Junmai Genshu. SMV: -50 Acidity: 3.4

Yes siree! That SMV is not a typo, neither is that Acidity level. This sake is wonderful on so many levels where do I begin? First it is sweet, and you know I don't like using that word with sake, but you cannot hide the deep honey and candied pear tones that are wrapped in a gooey and fat fluid that harkens back to the day when most sakes drank heavy and sweet. The makers call this brew a "Revival Sake." What's impressive is that for so much flavor and feeling
in this baby it drinks buoyant and quick, but the real strength rests in its food pairing prowess. If you are preparing any meat, game, fowl this guy is a great partner. But since it drinks very much like a Sauterne think Foie Gras, pates, cheese and dried fruit plates. So if you are sweet nigori fan looking for a filtered sake, a foodie, or looking to expand your sake knowledge this "Revival Sake" should be on your list!
