(Aged)

Kubo Honke is a superb brewery that makes sakes that are a touch more challenging for the beginner, but incredibly rewarding for those who know what they’re looking for. This junmai ginjo is aged a long time (for sake) and is not for the faint of heart. While extremely smooth, it is also loaded with aged aromas and flavors that are unusual for non-aged sake. Get this if you know that you like aged sake and want to go a bit deeper down into the rabbit hole.

Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

Buttery, chocolatey and creamy with hints of apricot and dried fruits. Incredibly robust and mature but with vestiges of its youth finely wound together with rounded acidity that gives it a velvet like texture. The finish is long and luxurious punctuated with savory notes reminiscent of roasted nuts, mushroom and nutmeg.

Brewery Story

Sake With Character

Kubo Honke’s stylistic sake lays its foundation on the traditional Kimoto brewing method, which emphasizes umami and lightness at the same time as providing complex aromas. It has a refreshing acidity and a solid core of flavor that goes along with almost any type of food. The sharpness of full fermentation and the depth of flavor of several years of aging make Kubo Honke’s sake special. This sake is aged for 9 years and tastes incredible. But beware, if you are expecting a regular clear, white, easy-to-drink sake this is not it. This is the sake to get if you're looking for something unique and that will give your tastebuds a good workout.
