Kijoshu means 'Noble-Brew Sake'. Generally aged before being sold, this type of sake often has a range of flavours similar to sherry. No added distilled alcohol, but instead a full-bodied sake from a previous year is added to the still fermenting batch, bringing the fermentation to an early halt. There are some similarities in production technique to that of port wine producing a sake that becomes darker and richer with age. The Chokyu is also Junmai and has a rich toffee colour, and highly aromatic nose of bitter chocolate, caramel and dried porcini mushroom. The palate is reminiscent of Oloroso sherry. with its deep, rich flavours and is a great match for rich meat dishes, consommés or with rich desserts. Delicious burnt toffee flavour with a savoury walnut and sesame finish.
