Fukushima Sake Tasting: One Cup Series 2) Ohara Brewery-Classic Tokubetsu Junmai Cup


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 continued with a one cup sake by Ohara Brewery!


The Japanese are very much in love with Mozart!


Tokubetsu Junmai is a pretty high level for a one cup sake!
I decided to drink it at room temperature!


Rice: Yamada Nishiki
Rice milled down to 60%
Yeast No 9
White lees: 35%
Alcohol: 15 degrees
Dryness: + 15
Acidity: 1.4
Amino acids: 1.0
Bottled in March 2015

Clarity: very clear
Color: very faint golden hue
Aroma: Dry and fruity. Discreet. Rice
Body: fluid, slightly sirupy
Taste: Dry and fruity attack, but not as dry as expected, backed with gentle junmai petillant.
Soft macadamia nuts, dry custard, marshmallow.
Lingers only for a short while before departing on a softer note.
Varies little with food but for more junmai petillant.

Overall: pleasant and very easy to drink sake in spite of its + 15 dryness not really appearing on the tongue.
has enough character to entice you into the second and third sip!
Eminently enjoyable on its own, would marry well with Cheese and chocolate in particular.
