Since I will shortly travel to Yui Cho to visit and interview Eikun Brewery, I thought some tasting was in order!

Eikun Brewery: Tokubetsu Junmai (2008)

Rice: Yakumangoku
Rice milled down to 55%
Yeast: Shizuoka HD-101
Alcohol: 16.5 degrees
Dryness: +4
Acidity: 1.4
Bottled in April 2008

Clarity: Very clear
Colour: Almost transparent
Aroma: Fruity. Complex. Vanilla, bananas, pineapple.
Body: Velvety to fluid.
Taste: Short tail. Dry at first but soft. Slight junmai tingle.
Complex. Fruity: pineapple, almonds.
Pleasant and fleeting. Almonds making a strong comeback with junmai tingle on second sip. Turns dry with food.

Overall: In spite of its elevated rank, holds itself very well with food.
Elegant, fleeting. A sake for all season!
