Sawanotsuru Umeshu Koshu
The nose on this uniquely made plum sake is a grand collection of plum, honey, raisin, brown sugar, brandy, and plum candy aromas. Are you ready for some viscous, complex, and tasty plum fun? The brewery uses koshu or aged sake to give this super umeshu a deeper, richer, and perhaps sweeter complexion that is awesomeness in a glass. Look for plum, sugar, candy, raisin, and more deep plum flavors that roll on a plump and juicy flow, with a generous and tart finish. Truly a player in the umeshu market, as it reaches new heights in terms of flavor and feeling. Some like to add an ice cube to lighten the flow, and this works best in a bigger glass. WORD: Plum WINE: Dessert wines BEER: Fruity ales FOODS: Fruit and cheese plates, smoked meats and fowl, salami and cured meats.
