The nose on this classic honjozo is a slick collection of apple, sweet rice, cream, marshmallow, pear, and mineral water aromas. Smooth, round, soft, and semi dry this brew is silky and very drinkable. It’s soft and slippery but there is crispness and lots of umami with a dry tight finish. Look for sweet rice, nougat, marshmallow, powdered sugar, mochi, and caramel flavors that glide through the palate. A very “user friendly” sake that feels good in the mouth and the texture goes down far too easily. And it just tastes darn good. This is a great “gateway” to Honjozo.
