This tokubetsu (special) honjozo showcases the creamy nuttiness of lactic acid with a slight nose of apricots. Although honjozos are often very crisp and clean, this honjozo has a wide, rich mouthfeel reminiscent of almonds and whipped cream.
Both the brewer and Umami Mart staff agree that this sake pairs best at room temperature with a creamy, fresh mozzarella or a soft triple cream cheese like Brillat-Savarin. This robust sake is also a winner when it comes to pairing with rich, hearty foods like stews and grilled legs of lamb.
