Wakatake Onikoroshi Tokubetsu Junmai Genshu "Demon Slayer"
The gentle nose on this undiluted Junmai (18%) is a mix of berries and green plums with cinnamon and steamed rice elements. Think fat, rich and creamy as this sake carries a “Wow!” smoothness. The layers of flavor are amazing as steamed rice tones give way to a rich fruitiness when the brew comes closer to room temperature. This extremely “food friendly” Junmai speaks to those who like a mouthful of fat and chewy smoothness that is neither particularly fruity nor dry – just balanced. Look for a vein of caramel and plum expressions, and enjoy the rich complexity from one of our favorite breweries. WORD: Fat WINE: Chewy Pinot Noirs/Deep Whites BEER: Creamy ales FOODS: Anything from the land or sea – the bigger the flavor the better.
