I fell in love with this honjozo in its hometown of Fukushima at an onsen. Paired with a local delight, shisomaki, this smooth, creamy and rich kimoto style sake was heavenly warmed up slightly. Picture yourself in a yukata and be transported to Fukushima with this bottle!
Back home in Oakland, I noticed the cherries in the nose and a general sweetness. So I tried it with a few saltier cheeses. A pungent, salty Roquefort proved to be the winner! Enjoy this sake chilled with your favorite blue!
