As Yoshiya Brewery has officially ceased operations this month, I acquired a few of their bottles for posterity, at least for the sake of his retired Masterbrewer Harushu Nakashima!

Yoshiya Brewery: Chuuhei, Tokubetsu Honjozo
Rice milled down to 55% (extravagant!)
Alcohol: 16~17 degrees
Dryness: + 17 (very dry!)
Acidity: 1.3
Bottled in December 2009

Clarity: Very clear
Colour: Faint golden tinge
Aroma: Powerful. Fruity: vanilla, bitter chocolate.
Body: Velvety
Taste: Very dry and fruity attack. Pleasant alcohol. Shortish tail. Vanilla, almonds, bitter chocolate. Very dry finish with coffee beans.

Overall: A sake fit for food, especially heavy food.
Very elegant in spite of powerful dryness.
For dry sake lovers!
