This particular bottle from Haginishiki Brewery in Shizuoka City is a bit special. It was offered to me by my good friend, mr. Kawashima. It is a very limited edition sold only to personal clients. You will not find it in shops!

Haginishiki Junmai Ginjo Nama Genshu
Limited Edition
Rice: 100% Homare Fuji
Rice milled down to: 60%
Alcohol: 17=18 degrees
Bottled in December 2007

Clarity: very clear

Colour: light golden tinge

Aroma: Fruity, discreet. Bananas, pineapple.

Body: velvety

Taste: Fruity mixed with typical junmai tingle, emphasized by alcohol.
Bananas, almonds, pineapple.
Long tail with pineapple. Dryness revealed with next sip with more almonds and coffee beans.

Overall: A solid, very satisfying sake with a lot of character and body.
Drinks equally well on its own and with food.
Probably best appreciated slightly chilled.
