Maboroshi Sake: Kuromai by Sugii Brewery

Here is one sake I may never taste, hence the expression, “Maborshi Sake”!

In 2000 Kinnosuke Sugii, the owner and Master brewer at Sugii Brewery (Suginishiki) in Fujieda City, came up with one of his annual creations: Kodaimai Kurozake (Ancient Rice, Black sake) Honjozo.
At this time my good friend Takahiro Nagashima of Nagashima Saketen in Shizuoka City acquired two bottles of this very limited one-time only brew and decided to let them mature for a s long as possible. He drunk the first bottle last year and found supremely good.
Yesterday, Decemeber 6th, he showed me the second bottle he hoped to let mature some more time and allowed me to take a picture for posterity.
He promised me he would invite me when he decides to finally open it!
A sort article for a long wait….
I might as well as grab Mr. Sugii’s next creation for my own cellar!
