Shizuoka Sake Tasting: Fuji Takasago Brewery-Sekai Bunka Isan Tooroku-Yamahai Junmai Ginjo


Fuji-Takasago Brewery is located in Fujinomiya City and as I said since Mount Fuji has been accepted by the UNESCO as a World Cultural Heritage, the brewery felt obliged to advertise the event!


I suspect they printed that particular “flying label” for all their bottles! LOL


Clarity: Very clear
Color: Very light golden hue
Aroma: Faint, almost shy. Fruity and sweetish. rice
Body: Fluid
Taste: Well-rounded fruity and sweetish attack with assertive junmai petillant.
Complex. Pears, almonds, hints of chocolate. Later, hints of sweet milk coffee.
Lingers for a while warming up the palate.
Tends to sweeten up with second long sip.
Marries well with food.
Surprisingly sweetish and pleasant sake for a yamahai.

Overall: A sake obviously designed to be enjoyed with heavy izakaya food, although thoroughly enjoyable on its own chilled.
Probably best enjoyed by ladies thanks to its sweetish approach.
Try it with cheese!
