————————————————–

We are in October and it becomes a rush to taste all these Hiyaoroshi!

Doi Brewery: Kaiun Junmai Hiyaoroshi
Rice: yamada Nishiki
Rice milled down to: 55% (extravagant!)
Alcohol: 16~17 degrees (genshu)

Clarity: Very clear
Colour: Light golden tinge
Aroma: Discreet. Banana
Body: Velvety
Taste: Complex. Shortish tail. Fruity and dry. Banana, coffee beans.
Turns drier very quickly, especially with food.
Vanilla and almonds appearing later.
Junmai tingle.
Bitter chocolate appearing later with more food.

Overall: “Shizuoka Type Sake. Multi-faceted.
Well suited for food.
Drinks very quickly. Tends to show a fleeting character.
Extravagant millage at 55%.
Poured a cup inside a “kegani/spider crab” shell with its “miso/brain”. Sublime!

    Dear Robert-Gilles,

    I can’t thank you enough for all of your kind hospitality the other day. We finally made it to Shizuoka! Please, please, please thank the Ishikawas, Matsunaga-san, and the Tomiis for me. I had an absolute blast and will send some pix very soon.

    Cheers,
    Melinda
