I just had the opportunity to visit Eikun Brewery perched in the mountains away from any main thoroughfare in Yui Cho (soon to be part of Shizuoka City). Although it has already made itself a name outside the Prefecture this is a small brewery, so I make it a rule to grab whatever interesting stuff I happen to take sight of!
Melinda and Etsuko will learn that once again I found another great « futsushu » of ridiculously high value!
Eikun Brewery: Suruga no Bishu, Futsushu
Alcohol: 15~16 degrees
Rice milled down to 65% on site (absolutely extravagant)
Bottled in April 2008
Clarity: Very clear
Colour: Almost transparent
Aroma: Light. Fruity: Apples, almonds.
Taste: Short tail (especially for futsushu). Light alcohol. Apples, almonds, vanilla, licorice. Very smooth on tongue and palate. Turns drier after a few sips.
Overall: A sake fit for food.
I tasted it at room temperature, but should be interesting lukewarm.
Drinks so easily. Deep and pleasant taste.
Simply extravagant for futsushu!
Can be drunk at all times of a meal.
