The Shizuoka Geeks tasted (I would say guzzled down) this extravagant sake (ishobin/1.8 l.) concocted by Oumuraya Brewery in Shimada City as we had a few reasons to celebrate. It is a « limited edition », so I am religiously (I’m an agnostic hedonist) keeping the labels safe.
Its name is « Hanya ». People interested in Japanese culture will be interested, I’m sure!
It is also a « tobinkoi », meaning it was filtered into one of those big glass vats for maturing.

Oomuraya Brewery/Hanya Junmai Daiginjo
Rice: Yamada Nishiki from Hyogo Prefecture
Rice milled down to 50%
Yeast: Shizuoka HD-1
Alcohol: 17~18 degrees (high)

Clarity: very clear

Colour: almost transparent

Aroma: fruity and light, almost discreet. Elegant. Pineapple.

Body: velvety

Taste: sweetish at first. Junmai tingle. Fruity: pineapple.
Elegant with short tail. Calling for the next sip. So easy to drink. Coffee beans revealed later. Goes surprisingly well with food, keeping it character all along.

Overall: Definitely a bit too extravagant for our rough lot, but who complains? Some people are going to kill me for coming with so few notes for such a beauty!

What I found extraordinary is that such a high-class sake held its own so well, even as we were eating cheese and real curry cooked by our English Host, Mark (Talk about a rough lot! LOL)
