The other day thanks to her husband, my good friend offered me this 5 one cup sake set from Fukushima Prefecture!
Today, continuing my break from the Shizuoka Prefecture one cup sake I sampled a one cup sake by Kokken Brewery!
Simply called Kokken for a Honjozo!
Rice milled down to 65%
Alcohol: 15~16 degrees
Bottled in march 2015
Clarity: very clear
Color: almost transparent
Aroma: Light and dry. Fruity. Coffee beans
Taste: Dry and fruity attack backed with pleasant alcohol.
Fruity. Strong coffee beans, almonds and hints of dark chocolate and custard.
Lingers on for a little while before before departing on a drier note with more coffee beans and custard.
Varies little with food but for a drier note.
Drinks very easily.
Overall: Surprisingly very pleasant for such a humble sake!
Very easy to drink and pleasant on the palate.
Although obviously conceived to be drunk with food, emnienntly enjoyable on its own.
Would pair well with heavy izakaya fare, but personally enjoyed it with cheese and biscuits!
