Shizuoka Sake Tasting 6-4: Oomuraya Brewery-Sake Rock

Please check Shizuoka Gourmet Blog for all the gastronomy in Shizuoka Prefecture!



Oomuraya Brewery (Wakatake/Onna Nakase) in Shimada City must have been inspired by their export business to the U.S. when they created this remarkable sake!
For all the dubious design, it is a sake worth noticing, both for its concept and type!

Sake Rock
Seishu/futsushu (“normal sake”)
Rice: Goyakumagoku
Milled down to 70% (absolutely extravagant for futsushu!)
Alcohol contents: 21 degrees (yes, you read correctly, 21 degrees proof!)

Clarity: very clear

Colour: light gold

Aroma: Strong/Pear/Banana/Vanilla

Taste: Strong alcohol spreading over palate. Fruits.
Plenty of bananas and pears. More alcohol emerging with some acidity after second sip.

Overall: Very macho sake. Drinks like a cocktail.
Goes very well with food.
Best drunk slightly chilled. Let it warm inside the mouth.

A discovery that Tim and blokes all the world would be particulary interested in!

  2. dragonlife Says:

    I loved it. But the sake is pretty strong: 21 degrees.
    If you guys and gals in Toyo are interested, I can send you a bottle!

  3. Etsuko Says:

    Wow. 21 I guess it really rocks!

  4. dragonlife Says:

    And I have another one from Eikun Brewery that draws 25!
