I’m starting enjoying Fujimasa Brewery from Fujinomiya City! Pity it is a bit difficult to get hold of their brews in Shizuoka City!
Fujimasa Brewery: Junmai Shu
Rice milled down to 60%
Alcohol: 15.5 degrees
Bottled: May 2008
Clarity: Very clear
Colour: Almost transparent
Aroma: Dry, pleasant, complex. Bitter chocolate, almonds, hint of bananas
Taste: Short tail. Dry. Only slight junmai tingle.
Complex. Bitter Chocolate, almonds, coffee beans.
Very pleasant, elegant.
Varies little with food.
Overall: « Shizuoka-type sake ». Pleasant, elegant sake fit for any food.
Thoroughly enjoyable by itself, too. Leaves strong but very short Impression. Calls for the next sip.
