Oomuraya Brewery (Wakatake/Onna Nakase) in Shimada City must have been inspired by their export business to the U.S. when they created this remarkable sake!
For all the dubious design, it is a sake worth noticing, both for its concept and type!
Seishu/futsushu (« normal sake »)
Milled down to 70% (absolutely extravagant for futsushu!)
Alcohol contents: 21 degrees (yes, you read correctly, 21 degrees proof!)
Clarity: very clear
Colour: light gold
Taste: Strong alcohol spreading over palate. Fruits.
Plenty of bananas and pears. More alcohol emerging with some acidity after second sip.
Overall: Very macho sake. Drinks like a cocktail.
Goes very well with food.
Best drunk slightly chilled. Let it warm inside the mouth.
A discovery that Tim and blokes all the world would be particulary interested in!
