Gokyo Tanuki Junmai JH28 "Happy Raccoon"

Four Hot Words: Semi-dry, Ricey, Savory, & Smooth
The nose on this playful Junmai sake is made up of chestnut, steamed rice, honey, straw, and toast elements. This is a very smooth, savory, and fleshy sake that drinks on many different levels. Creamy and round up here, rich and fleshy down there, round and juicy over there, and chewy and semi-thick right here. Loaded with flavors you will need a basket to find sweet nuts and grains, cocoa powder, caramel, nughet, milk chocolate, marshmallow, and a tingle of French toast with maple syrup. But the strength rests in the smooth and confident balance of each sip that ends with quick cinnamon finish. A very sneaky sake that drinks like so many wonderful stories. WORD: Complex WINE: Bourdeaux/Deep Whites BEER: Belgian Ales FOODS: Salty and savory fare, off the grill, soups, and game.
Prefecture: Yamaguchi
SMV: +1
