Kikuhime Yamahai JunmaiJH96

This massive brew has a monster nose filled with chocolate, earthy, musky, soy-sauce, and aged-sake (koshu) elements. How can so much flavor be offset with such excellent acidity to create superb balance? Who knows and who cares when drinking one of the true sakes of the sake world sakes! If you like your brews dirty with large and expansive flavors of dark chocolate, tangy fruit, and a distinct gaminess then hold on to your hats for one of the most unique and “Yamahai-ish” sake in the market. Smaller cups bring forth more koshu-like qualities with chewy old fruit, and larger vessels produce more rich and tangy expressions that tingle on sour. A masterpiece for those who run from Daiginjo. WORD: Immense WINE: Huge Dirty Reds BEER: Stouts, Dark Belgians FOODS: Grilled, salty, savory anything.
Prefecture: Ishikawa
