I loved this taste. It came recommend by the brewer. Tokubetsu honjozo "gohyakumangoku" rice. Very flavorful for a honjozo and complex. You can taste a lot of maturity in this sake. Again new rice. All of the sake I taste is very recent. The bold print "kokken" is the name of the sake and ore no deban is a special brew made by kokken shuzo ! As for pear nose, not much there. Taste is acquired so saying something taste like this or that is subjective to ones own perception. You either like sake or you don't. This Autumn should see some nice sake come out. Stay open and try everything. You'll be surprised what sake will do for you.
