Shizuoka Sake Tasting 7-3: Fuji Takasago Brewery Junmai Nama Genshu
Fuji Takasago Brewery Junmai Nama Genshu: This is the second bottle sampled by the Hamamatsu Geeks on September 14th:
Takasago Junmai Nama Genshu (Fuji-Takasago Brewery, Fujinomiya City).
Rice: 100% Homare Fuji grwon in Shizuoka Prefecture
Rice milled down to 60%
Bottld in March 2007
Clarity: very clear
Colour: beautiful gold
Aroma: Ricey, light/fruity/Flowers
Taste: Complex. Welcome tingle due to its “nama” and “genshu” nature, which spreads very quickly through the palate. Bananas, gardenias.
Overall: Solid and satisfying. Very popular with ladies in spite of its strong nama-genshu character. A sake to go with any food.
