Houraisen Junmai Daiginjo DG67 "Kuu"

The nose on this very special sake is a collection of sweet floral, blueberry, sweet  rice, and powder sugar elements. What a great sake! This is a perfect shining example of how rice and water can be more complex than wine. (There I said it!) It is smooth, round and extremely confident with fleshy tones that have a brilliant movement through the palate. Not dry, but definitely not fruity sweet this Koo has a more rich sugar sweetness that almost tastes like cooked sugar. This is a professional sake, because it is so damn complex, but so damn drinkable. It’s also very unassuming just like the peek-a-boo hint of banana as the fluid warms. Rich and wonderful this sake is a true winner. WORD: Smooth WINE: Pinot Noir/creamy whites BEER: Belgians/creamy ales FOODS: So drinkable why add food? If you must, think pinot noir fare.
