The other day thanks to her husband, my good friend offered me this 5 one cup sake set from Fukushima Prefecture!
Today, taking a break from the Shizuoka Prefecture one cup sake I started with a canned one cup sake by Eisen Brewery!
Eisen Brewery: Eisen cup, Specail brew. Probably a futsushu!
Alcohol: 15 degrees
Canned in February 2017
Clarity: very clear
Color: faint golden hue
Aroma: Assertive an dry. Rice with hints of banana an dark chocolate
Tasting: Solid and fruity attack with only mild dryness.
More complex than expected.
Nuts, dark chocolate, almonds and faint hints of melon and coffee beans.
Warms up the palate considerably on its way out.
Finishes on a drier note with plenty of nuts and almonds.
Overall: More complex than expected for such a humble-sounding sake.
Plenty of fruit married with soft dryness.
Obviously conceived to accompany food, nonetheless very enjoyable on its own.
Probably best enjoyed at room temperature.
Would particularly do well with cheese and cold meats!
