Shizuoka Sake Tasting 7: Fuji-Takasago Brewery/Yamahai
Fuji-Takasago Brewery/Yamahai: For once, I tasted a sake brewed in the Eastern part of Shizuoka Prefecture, more precisely from Numazu City.
By pure coincidence the sample was introduced in the Dancyu Magazine, April 2007 edition, as a typical example of « Yamahai » (cold brewing) sake.
Name: Takasago/Fuji Takasago Brewery/Yamahai Shikomi Junmai Genshu Arabashiri
Rice milled down to 55%
Clarity: absolutely clear
Body: light and dry
Aroma: Light flowers, fruit, discreet and elegant, almost shy. Quite light flavour for such a style of sake avoided by many brewers.
Taste: Apricot/banana/almond. Easy and smooth on the palate. Leaves a strong « petillant » after swallowing.
It could be considered a macho sake in Shizuoka Prefecture, but would probably please ladies in other parts of japan, too.
