Kinmon Yamabuki Gold Koshu (Vintage 2005) 720ml
"Yamabuki Gold" Finely Aged Vintage Sake is made over long aging periods, using 12 year old sake as a base, blending other aged sakes ranging up to 20 year old in the unique cold temperature conditions of Akita. It is full of umami with rich burnt toffee flavour and soft tones. We like this one because unlike most other koshu we believe this is aged at low temperatures providing a less harsh and burnt taste.
Aged old sake that is a blend of 18 years based on 10 years. Clean mouthfeel. The soft acidity first spreads in the mouth, and the smoky umami spreads throughout the mouth. Sake with a long finish. Flavour felt in sake like Shaoxing wine, shimeji mushrooms, tsukudani, rocky shore flavor, red miso, horse chestnut honey, pickled cucumber. Pair well wth Tsukudani meat, shrimp, cheese
