Gifu Sake Tasting: One Cup Series 1) Miyozakura Brewery-Junmai


The other day once again thanks to her husband, my good friend Atsuko Kurata offered me this one cup sake from Gifu Prefecture as part of a batch of no less than 8 cups from 6 different Prefectures!
This particular sake brewed by Miyozakura Brewery is a junmai!


Now, why a panda? LOL


Rice milled down to 70%
Alcohol: 15 degrees
Bottled in March 2015

Clarity: very clear
Color: transparent
Aroma: discreet. Coffee beans, rice
Body: fluid
Taste: Dry and fruity attack backed with strong junmai petillant.
More complex than expected. Apricots, macadamia nuts, very dry almonds.
Lingers for a while on palate before departing on an even drier note with hints of coffee beans and roasted nuts.
Turns milder but still very dry with food. Tends to disappear more quickly then.

Overall: A better than average one cup sake for dry sake lovers.
Should marry well with any food!
Lovely design!
