SAKE SWEETNESS

JAPANESE NAME

十四代 本丸 秘伝玉返し

DESCRIPTION

Refreshing and sweet flavours, with a rich and velvety mouthfeel, it has an off-dry finish. This tokubetsu honjozo is polished down to 55%, and the jozo alcohol added to it is made in-house.

SOMMELIER'S NOTES

This sake has great mouthfeel and texture.  With loads of umami, this goes very easily with most food. Good pairing with Raw Oysters and Sashimi. This is probably the Signature Juyondai Sake.

Sake is well-balanced, rich with depth and complexity

Appearance: Clear, pale, lemon-green appearance with high viscosity and some bubblings observed. Nose: Sake has clean nose, with medium (-) intensity in aroma, in notes of Ginjo (pear), fruitty (mandarin orange), and others (cotton candy, liquorice). Palate: Sake is medium dry, with high umami and acidity, medium level of perceived alcohol, medium body with velvety texture and medium (+) flavour intensity in notes of Ginjo (pear), fruity (mandarin orange), and others (cotton candy, liquorice). Sake has a medium finished; the sweet and sourness of pears, which eventually develops into and end with some slight bitterness of liquorice and mandarin orange. Conclusion: Sake is well-balanced, rich with depth and complexity, and refreshing with the acidity and bubbling mouth-feel. Strangely enough, the Honjozo cast the strongest impression out of the five.

Never underestimate a Honjozo

Sake is well-balanced, rich and flavourful with depth and complexity; on the initial sip, you'll find notes of pear, lemon-barley, and cotton candy. It finishes off with a rich liquorice/mandarin orange aftertaste. Very delicious and impressive.
