Mr. Nakamura, owner of Hamamatsu-Tenjigura Brewery in hamamatsu City, recommended us this particular brew (last bottle available!)
I asked my good friend, Miss Mika Sakurai and her father, Toshio, to taste it for me!
Hamamatsu-Tenjingura Brewery/Shusseijo Junmai Nama Genshu Muroka (unfiltered)
Rice: Yamada Nishiki (Shizuoka Prefecture, 100%)
Rice milled down to 60%
Yeast: Shizuoka NEW-5
Alcohol: 18=19 degrees
Clarity: Very clear

Aroma: Sweet, bananas
Taste: Sweet. Fruity: Bananas. Strong alcohol. Drinks slowly. Nice acidity appears later.
Overall: This sake tasted sweet with a welcome acidity to achieve a great balance.
Full-bodied and aromatic due to its unfiltered character.
Very enjoyable aroma. We both loved its taste and balance (Toshio Sakurai hails from Nagano Prefecture and reckons this is very good sake)
