Morimoto Brewery and its owner/master brewer Mr. Hitoshi Morimoto in Kikugawa City have always been a great favourite of mine for the maverick approach to sake brewing.
The other day, Nagashima Saketen called me again to mention an interesting arrival. I did not hesitate!
I found myself holding a bottle with no label, just a small “tag” and the usual information on a white sticker!
Melinda would love it, considering this a very similar sake to the one I sent her for the first time last year!

Morimoto Brewery Junmai Nama Genshu “From The Tank”

Alcohol: 17.6 degrees
Rice milled down to 65%
Dryness: +6
Acidity: 1.7
Yeast: No 901

Clarity: very clear

Colour: almost transparent

Aroma: Light, fleeting. Pineapple, almonds, melon

Body: velvety

Taste: strong and pleasant alcohol backed up by typical junmai tingle.
Short tail. Fruity: pineapple, bananas, almonds, melon.

Overall: superb sake
Drinks so easily with food.
Comparatively very short tail for genshu.
Inviting for the next sip.
+6 dry taste tastes almost sweet at first to turn dry on palate quickly.
