It has been a while since I have tasted a brew by Yoshiya Brewery in Shizuoka City which a holds a special place in my heart as its toji/Master Brewer was the first gentleman to invite me to very private tasting sessions!
Since I know Melinda and Etsuko have a special liking for futsushu Icouldn’t help take one back home!
Yoshiya Brewery: Tokusen Chumasa Futsushu
Alcohol: 15~16 degrees
Bottled: April 2008
Clarity: Very clear
Colour: Almost transparent
Aroma: Sharpish and dry. Almonds. Alcohol.
Taste: Short tail. Sharp. Dry. Leaving a comforting warmth in the back of the palate.
Almonds, Coffee beans.
Drinks well with food.
Overall: A sake fit for food.
Dry but surprisingly pleasant. Simple impression but very likeable.
Even as a futshu, shows a distinguishable Shizuoka sake character.
