Yeaterday I had the occasion to drink a brew by Doi Brewery with a new label!
Doi Brewery: Kaiun Junmai
Rice milled down to 60%
Alcohol: 15 degrees
Amino acids: 1.2
Bottled in March 2009
Clarity: very clear
Colour: faint golden hue
Aroma: Fresh, discreet, feminine, fruity. Memories of vanilla, banana and pineapple.
Taste: Soft attack. Well-rounded. Short tail.
Pleasant, fleeting, feminine, sophisticated.
Fruity and dry, but very smooth.
Pineapple, soft citruses
Junmai tingle appears with food with a late appearance by almonds.
Very soft and fleeting finish with more dry almonds.
Overall: Extravagant, sophisiticated, fleetingly feminine are not exaggerated descriptions for this sake, the last created by Master Brewer hase who passed away in 2009.
Now, how would you drink it?
With your love? as an extravagant aperitif? Or on your own away from the bustle of everyday life….
