Fukunishiki Bansyu Kimoto Junmai “Old Style”
The nose on this traditionally made “Kimoto” or pole rammed sake is a cool collection of nutty, cheesy, creamy, toasty, buttery, and ricey aromas. This classic old style sake is made with a Hyogo rice varietal called Yumenishiki milled to 70% and drinks creamy and smooth. Soft, round, and gentle it is a great sake to play with at three different temperatures. Look for sweet nuts, cream, earth tones, toast, and ricey flavors that are balanced with a hint of wood and sweet rice components. As the fluid warms in the glass the brew gets even more creamy and savory. This is a classic Kimoto sake that is great for beginners and will fascinate sake enthusiasts.
