It’ s been a while since I could grab a bottle from my favourite Brewery, Morimoto in Kikugawa.
When I saw this particular one in Kakegawa JR Station, I just didn’t hesitate!

Morimoto Brewery: Sayogoromo Tokubetsu Honjozo

Rice milled down to 55% (extravagant)
Alcohol: 15~16 degrees
Bottled in December 2007

Clarity: very clear
Colour: Golden tinge
Aroma: Fruity, biscuits, almonds
Body: Velvety
Taste: Short tail. Nice alcohol. Fruity and sweetish.
Complex: Almonds, bitter chocolate, bananas.
Drinks well and keeps steady with food.

Overall: Great balance. Sweetish but not overwhelming.
Extravagant for Tokubetsu Honjozo (millage down to 55%!)
Drinks like an ice-cream when chilled!
