Made from whole plum infused in Junmai sake
ABV: 10%, 720ml
Savoury, spicy and long aroma to the nose. The base sake used in this really shines through. Notes of bitter plums, cooked lemon, cooked lime, mushroom, truffle, stewed tomato with bread and yeasty notes mingle on the palate providing complexity. The finish is long and very plummy. This is a very versatile drink. On ice this becomes rounder, fresher and zestier whilst at room temperature it is bold and orange flavoured with hints of cooked lime zest.
Very much a food umeshu. You could pair this with almost anything and not be disappointed.
Crisp with the same notes shining through. Loved the complexity and sharpness in comparison with some of the others I have tried.
