I had the occasion to taste and finish this bottle at Shidaizumi Brewery before it was put on sale, but due to a busy schedule did not have the time to record my notes. I amended the lapsus by buying and tasting it yeasterday.
Shoryuu is a junmai genshu with a difference brewed in September 2007 by Shidaizumi Brewery (Fujieda City).
Rice: Asahina Yamada Nishiki
Rice milled down to 70%
Clarity: very clear
Colour: light golden tinge
Taste: Complex. Welcome tinge spreading through palate thanks to its « genshu » nature. Fruity/bananas.
Lingers on for a long time.
Bitter chocolate and almonds appear revealed with second sip.
Overall: Complex, pleasant, reveals many characters as it calls for another sip.
Perfect with any food. Fruity but dry. A sake to experience!
