Kirin Koshi No Takumi Tokubesu Junmai "Sake Specialist"
This Junmai has nose of mushrooms and minerals, very earthy. A very light beginning warms up into a thinly rich middle mouth and ends with a nice slide down back of throat. It has a rich and creamy earthy pull that goes thinly through the mouth, and has a very subtle sweetness near the back of the mouth. This Junmai is a great “comparison” sake to that of a sweet floral type. It is a subtle opposite to a “fruity sake” and yet it drinks lighter than a deep rich sake. A compact flavor that is secretive and inviting. WORD: Mushroom WINE: Shiraz/Zins/Sauvignon Blancs BEER: Earthy Pilsners FOODS: Hamburgers, Fried pork, salmon sautéed with butter.
