Sake Selects - Team True Sake Select Monthly Brews January 2009

Posted by admin in 2009, January, Newsletter, Sake Selects

sake selects jan 2009Welcome to "True Selects" - featured sakes that are selected and championed by Miwa and Lynette - our two resident sake studs. As we can only stock so many different brands of sake - think limited space - this effort is a way to offer sakes that we wouldn't usually carry. They will select by price-point, uniqueness, availability, and other factors that make these selections unusual for the store.

Miwa's Pick: 

Hideyoshi "Amakarapin" 

From Akita prefecture. Junmai
SMV +1 / Acidity 1.4 / Rice: Sake Komachi, milled to 60%

This is one of Junmai I enjoyed at the Joy of Sake 2008. It is very flavorful and rich.

Lynette's Pick: 

Akitora "The Tiger" 

From Kochi Prefecture
Junmai Ginjo
SMV: +4 Acidity: 1.6

A different sort of Ginjo - round, soft with a gentle fruitiness and a dry finish.
