Gunma Izumi Honjozo JH52 "Famous Fountain"

Four Hot Words: Rich, Food-friendly, fat, & 3-temp-drinkable

The nose on this brew that is actually polished to 60% is a wonderful assortment of chestnuts, earthy, cocoa and butterscotch whiffs. WOW! Talk about a powerhouse honjozo that is soooooooooo drinkable with a slippery round smoothness that drinks supremely balanced and pure. This is a true sake! Look for hints of honey, nuts and buttery elements that are smoky, slick and savory. As the sake warms there are nice caramel tones, which means this guy is great for warming. Come on now honey roasted nuts and buttery too? Call the sake cops, because you are stealing this brew for sure. WORD: Balanced WINE: Smooth reds/buttery whites BEER: Creamy Ales FOODS: This sake was made for foods - period!
