Shizuoka Sake Tasting: Oomuraya Brewery-Oni Otome Sachi Junmai

A couple years ago, Oomuraya Brewery in Shimada City came up with the idea to create a companion for their Oni Goroshi/Kill a Goblin brand and they came up with Oni Otome/Goblin Princess”!


It is a seasonal brand which appears 4 times a year with a different name and color.
Since this is Autumn, the color is brown-red and the name is “Sachi/幸/happiness”!


I tasted it with my new glass bought in Bretagne, France!


Rice milled down to 60%
Alcohol: 15~16 degrees
Bottled in September 2014

Clarity: Very clear
Color: faint golden hue
Aroma: dry and fruity. Banana, custard.
Body: fluid
Taste: Strong dry and fruity attack with puissant junmai petillant and pleasant alcohol.
Complex: custard, later dry almonds, macadamia nuts, lychees.
Dry junmai petillant stays strong all the way.
Changes little with food but for a drier note.
Alcohol tends to prove a higher presence than its normal content.
Late appearance of dry chestnuts.

Overall: A straightforward sake for dry sake lovers.
Marries well with any food.
Probably at its best with heavy BBQ or izakaya fare!
