Ozeki Osakaya Chobei "First Boss"

$41

This is a terrific value Daiginjo as it gives a drinker the chance to taste a real player in the history of Japanese sake. The nose on Chobei is pure strawberry and candy goodness.  This sake has a relaxed and smooth honeydew melon start with a thin and round finish. The middle-mouth is filled with ripe melon flavors and a sweetness that isn't sweet. Go figure! The viscosity is thin and round and the mouth speed is velvety and quick, and the ending is a waterfall of flavor.

Fruity and flavorful!

Pours crystal clear. As I tilt the glass and pull back it leaves a defined residual deposit of nectar called "legs" around the side of the glass. The nectar sits there suspended and then finally starts to drip. This is indicative of the weight of the nectar. For sake, this is about medium to full nectar weight. The aroma is clean and semi fruity with a slight fresh astringency. Fleshy flavors accompanied by butter are very delicate w/ a slight fruitiness. Finish is long and dry leaving a medium thick coat of butter on the palate. A well made sake.
