The Kokin is made from a blend of three various years of Kidoizumi’s Hakugyokukō sake that have been aged, with the youngest of the years being a 1991 pressing. Kidoizumi specialise in koshu [aged] sake and have a great deal of experience with the unique production methods that allow sake to be aged for this length of time. The Kokin is one of their finest examples. A complex aroma of cocoa, coffee, caramel & spices. The palate is full bodied and complex - toffee, bitter chocolate, salted caramel along with sherry-like oxidative/nutty characters. A truly stunning example of koshu Sake!
