This is the first release of Gozenshu's new range, the 1859 series, named after the year Omachi rice was discovered. This is a Bodaimoto sake that is a Junmai, Muroka Nama Genshu.
Prototype has bold fruit flavours, pear, lychees, raspberries, apricots, and a hint of jackfruit. It starts off easy on the palate and then turns dry, rich and dense as the lactic acid kicks in. It also has hints of its Omachi roots, with white pepper and other herbal notes on the finish.
