True Sake Selects - Team True Sake Select Monthly Brews of Note February 2010
|Tamade Izumi Plum Sake
From Fukuoka Prefecture
Aged for a year, this "ume-shu" is made from sake, plum and crystallized sugar. I first tasted last spring and its prominent aroma of strawberry stayed with me.
|Chiyomosubi "Nezumiotoko" One Cup
From Tottori Prefecture. Junmai Ginjo.
Hi everyone this month I picked "Nezumiotoko" one cup, which is one of Kitaro series one cups. Full ripe strawberry layer with hint of steamed rice plumpness is melting on a pallet. Gentle powdery texture has similar feeling as fresh spring breeze. Perfect with slightly chilled temperature. Nice smooth finish. I like Kitaro a lot. Nezumiotoko has similar smooth texture as kitaro.
