Sogatsuru-Hagi no Kura Brewery has accomplished a fully-fledged return since their transformation 4 years ago from a moribond Sogatsuru Brewery for the pleasure of all sake lovers.
I decided to taste their Kazutoyo brand name again this year when I found it in Kakegawa JR Station.
Sogatsuru-Hagi no Kura Brewery: Kazutoyo-Kakegawajo Ginjo
Rice milled down to 55%
Alcohol: 15~16 degrees
Bottled (300 ml): November 2007
Clarity: Very clear
Colour: Almost transparent
Aroma: Fruity and sweetish: Melon, bananas
Taste: Short tail. Nice alcohol. Very fruity: melon, bananas.
Complex and elegant. Turns a bit drier with food with more almonds and apricots.
Turns sweeter again away from food with a hint of bitter chocolate.
Overall: Drinks well with food. Easy on the palate.
Deserves to be drunk with great food. Very « Shizuoka-style ».
Original balance between sweetnes and dryness.
