I still have a couple of new Autumn brews by Sogatsuru-Hagi no Kura Brewery in Kakegawa City to enjoy before I start looking around, and here is the firs one (actually, Melinda is also tatsing it, so we’ll be able to compare notes!):
Sogatsuru-hagi No Kura Brewery: Tokubetsu Junmai « Shurara »
Rice milled down to 55%
Alcohol: 15~16 degrees
Clarity: Very clear
Colour: Very light golden tinge
Aroma: Pleasant, fruity, bananas, vanilla
Taste: Shortish tail. Smooth attack backed by junmai tingle. Complex. Warms up back of the mouth.
Fruity: bananas, vanilla, hints of melon.
Pleasant with a dry finish accompanied by coffee beans.
Overall: Typical Shizuoka Sake.
Fruity, smooth, elegant. Drinks so easily.
A sake fit both for tasting and with food.
