New Store Arrivals - Spring Nama Blast #2 Otokoyama, Gokyo, Urakasumi

Posted by Beau Timken in 2010, May, New Store Arrivals, Newsletter
Okay folks the second flight of freshly released nama-zakes are here and ready for your complete and undivided attention. You know all of these brews as they paid a visit last spring. Look for your old favorites like Otokoyama Yukishibori that is drinking crisp, clean, and dry with a hint of melon. Or the explosive Arabashiri from Gokyo that has layers of attitude and is a large walk in the park of flavors. And don't forget the very solid and rich Urakasumi Shiboritate that is velvety and a smooth trip to the full-bodied side. And per usual I will NOT include my reviews this flight on account of how much these brews evolve in the bottle and how quickly they do so. If I write a review one week the brews may drink just a little more different the next - and that is what is FUN about nama sake!
