[International kikisake-shi] Japanese sake selection-1 "Furosen"

 

I tweeted below

 

【Japanese sake】Furosen Junmaiginjo Shinshunamasake(5-grade evaluation)

Flavor:none
Sweetness:4
Acidity:4
Umami:4
Bitterness:3
Total:5

Juicy like concentrated juice or cocktails. Taste is complete without any food. If you eat something together, something sweet and sour such as estir-fried shrimp in chili sauce or sweet-and-sour pork. The details will be shown in tomorrow brog.

 

The first selection is about "Furosen" and I chose "Usunigori namagenshu".

 

かず
I have tasted several kinds of Furosen, however, Usunigori namagenshu is the first time.

 

Japanese sake brand "Furosen": 1 minute introduction

日本酒 銘柄 種類 不老泉1

 

Furosen is the Japanese sake made in Uehara shuzou located in Shiga prefecture.

 

Their production method is Yamahai-shikomi by using yeast living in their Sake brewery instead of adding artificial yeast.

 

Yamahai-shikomi is the production method that "Yamaoroshi", which is to stir steamed rice, koji and water, is skipped.

 

Japanese sake is usually judged "Dry or Sweet", however, Furosen is a tasty sake.

 

Information about Sake brewery

 

The Sake brewery is Uehara shuzou located on the west coast of Biwako. Cold wind comes from the Hira mountains and snow piles up up to 30cm in the winter.

 

There is a well in the brewery so infiltrated soft water gushes free throughout the year.

 

They do not rely on the machinery, making about 90,000 litters of Japanese sake.

Japanese sake brand: Furosen Yamahai Junmaiginjo Usunigori

日本酒 銘柄 種類 不老泉1

 

This is the Japanese sake I bought this time. (1.8 litters bottle). Because it is namazake, it was placed in cold storage.

 

Namazake is the Japanese sake that is not sterilized so that yeast is alive, proceeding in alcohol fermentation.

 

The cap is written "Michi ni shitagaeba kichi", meaning "If you go on the right way of life, you will become better".

日本酒 銘柄 種類 不老泉

 

This comes from Chinese classic "Book of Documents".

 

We can feel that they make Japanese sake sincerely.

 

It is a little bit cloudy.

First, drink cold one

Aroma is almost nothing.

 

It is a strong taste. Just after I sipped, I thought "Is it concentrated juice?"

 

You can feel the explosion of sweetness, umami, and fresh acidity.

 

The taste of this Japanese sake is completed. But if you want to drink it with food, something sweet and sour is better such as shrimps in chili sauce or sweet-sour pork.

 

Drink the warm

I warmed up to 45 degrees.

 

かず
It is good, however, the impact is not as big as cold one.

 

The first attack is bit weak when you sip compare to cold one.

 

かず
I prefer warm sake, but for this sake, cold one is better.
