Shizuoka Sake Tasting: Hamamatsu-Tenjingura Brewery-Ten Teki Koshu Junmai

SN3O0100

I have just had one more occasion of tasting a sake a bit off the tracks by Hamamatsu-Tenjingura Brewery in Hamamatsu City!

SN3O0099

“Ten Teki”, which means “IV” in English!
It is a koshu/古酒, a sake 15-year old!

SN3O0101

Rice milled down to 60%
Alcohol: 15~16 degrees
Bottled in November 2014

Clarity: very clear
Color:Golden
Aroma: very dry and fruity. Sherry, cherries
Body: fluid
Taste: sweet, deep and fruity attack.
Plums with notes of umeshu and rum.
Very elegant.
Changes little with food but for an even drier note.
Stays fruity all the time.

Overall: A sake to be drunk as a digestif with chocolate or any dessert, unless you wish to challenge a great pairing with strong cheese, both to be taken at at the end of a special repast.
If you happen to drink it as a liqueur, it will quickly disappear!
