This is the second bottle sampled by the Hamamatsu Geeks on September 14th:
Takasago Junmai Nama Genshu (Fuji-Takasago Brewery, Fujinomiya City).

Rice: 100% Homare Fuji grwon in Shizuoka Prefecture
Rice milled down to 60%
Bottld in March 2007

Clarity: very clear

Colour: beautiful gold

Aroma: Ricey, light/fruity/Flowers

Body: smooth

Taste: Complex. Welcome tingle due to its « nama » and « genshu » nature, which spreads very quickly through the palate. Bananas, gardenias.

Overall: Solid and satisfying. Very popular with ladies in spite of its strong nama-genshu character. A sake to go with any food.
