Fukushima Sake Tasting: One Cup Series 5) Suehiro Brewery-Dr. Noguchi Cup


The other day thanks to her husband, my good friend offered me this 5 one cup sake set from Fukushima Prefecture!
Today, continuing my break from the Shizuoka Prefecture one cup sake I sampled a one cup sake by Suehiro Brewery!


Called “Dr. Noguchi Cup”! very probably a junmai!


Dryness: + 1.5~2.5
Acidity: 1.2~1.4
Yeast: Suehiro yeast (T-1) + No 701
Amino acids: 1.0~1.2
Moromi/mash: 25~27
Sakekasu/white lees: 23
Alcohol;: 1516 degrees
Bottled in February 2015

Clarity: very clear
Color: light golden hue
Aroma: Assertive and fruity. Rice, coffee beans
Body: fluid
Taste: Assertive, dry and fruity attack backed up with pleasant alcohol and strong junmai petilleant.
Complex: Coffee beans, almonds, dry custard, yoghurt
Lingers for a while before departing with more coffee beans and chestnuts
Stays true to first impressions all the way through.
Hints of dark chocolate, banana and mandarin oranges coming late amid strong coffee beans.
Drier than expected.
Changes little with food but for a drier note.

Overall: Surprisingly interesting and more complex than expected.
Definitely for dry sake lovers in spite of its low dryness.
Should marry well with any food, izakaya heavy fare in particular as well as cheese!
Definitely worth a try!
