Urakasumi Honjozo Genshu "Misty Bay"
The nose on this dynamic genshu (19%) has a collection of aromas from grains, steamed rice and minerals to butterscotch, burnt sugar and roasted caramel. Talk about a round and smooth brew that is very large in presence. Beefy, chunky, immense - take your pick, but enjoy the chewy rush of rich flavors and feelings. A deep and profound sake that has layers of brown sugar and caramel tones that float on a fleshy fluid. Smokey rice elements present themselves closer to room temperature. WORD:Rich WINE: Pinot Noir/White Burgundy BEER: Belgian Ales FOODS: Anything off of the grill, salty and savory fare, meats, fowl and game.
