Ooki Daikichi Honten Shizengou "Cuvee 18" Sake 500ml

SKU #1163816

Polished to 80%. First impression of this complex sake is the rich and full aromas of hazelnut, burnt caramel and dried fruit. It has a developed round mouthfeel with a finish full of orange zest and clean acidity to give the sake a wonderful balance. An aged sake, closer to an exotic sherry, and one of the coolest things I've ever tasted. This will be incredible with toasted nuts, funky triple cream cheeses, dense chocolate cake, pithivier, or just sipping after a lovely meal.-Melissa Lavrinc Smith (sake buyer and head sommelier)

Interesting and delicious. The Ooki has some of the nut-like flavors of a Amontillado but that is the only similarity to sherry. There is also a hint of mushrooms along with a clean nice finish.
