Sumiyoshi Koshu "Three Years Aged" Tokubetsu Junmai Sake, NV 300ml

Inventory Status: 4


Unique aged, dry sake made with premium yamadanishiki rice polished down to 60%. Its fragrant cedar scents combine brilliantly with the haunting aromas and rich umami flavors developed during three years of aging, including a year and a half in Yoshino cedar barrels or taru. Only a fraction of sakes produced today are koshu or aged sake, and even rarer are koshu aged the ancient way in Yoshino cedar wood from the forests of Nara Prefecture. This Sumiyoshi sake is an extraordinary sake experience. Its earthy, mushroomy, gamy, and Sherry-like flavors are perfectly paired with richer dishes like grilled meats, strong cheeses, and ham.

"This firm danced its first solo steps more than forty years ago, when it began brewing traditional, dry, pure-rice sake, and aging it for a fixed period in wooden kegs to impart the scent of the wood. Shipping such dry products as the Sumiyoshi line, and such rich-flavored labels as the Taruhei series, the company's unique character-rich products are perennially popular." Philip Harper, The Book of Sake
