Shizuoka Vintage Sake (2):Vintage Sake Haginishiki Brewery

Vintage Sake Haginishiki

As I said before, I have the particular luck to know a liquor shop, Matsunaga Saketen (Japanese), whose owner, Mr. Matsunaga, has collected and safely stored sake from the Showa Era, that is, since 1988 and before! He even has introduced his stock on the internet, a document that any Japanese-reading sake-lover ought to consult!

Melinda, Etsuko and even Tim are going to scream again for my skin!as I continue exploring the whole Shizuoka stock.

This particular brew was also bottled in 1987, although Mr. matsunaga thinks it was actually brewed in 1986!

Haginishiki Brewery (Shizuoka City), Daiginjo
No records but for:
Alcohol: 17~18 degrees

Clarity: Very clear
Colour: Alsmost transparent
Aroma: Dry, discreet, fruity: pineapple, melon, gummy sweet
Body: Velvety
Taste: Short tail. Dry. Almonds, pineapple.
Turns very dry with food with a strong hint of alcohol and lots of coffee beans and pineapple. Almonds and bitter chocolate also fighting for supremacy.

Overall: An « old fashion » sake with strength in alcohol.
Suited for food, especially oily and strong sauces.
Still very pleasant in spite of grand age!
