August: The Return of Souls

August is peak summer season in Japan.  We can look forward to some of the most spectacular fireworks displays and festivals in the world, ...


The name of this nihonshu is called (oku), and it's a summer sake hailing from Aichi prefecture in West Japan.   The reason for choosing this sake is because one it's from Hazu town and two it was ranked high on the list of repeat sake at the last sake tasting even I had attended a couple of weeks ago here.


What I like a lot about this sake is its gorgeous floral nose.  It has deep flavor profiles with a nice complexity of flavors. 

The breakdown is as follows:

This is first and foremost a junmai nama genshu Genshu; alc. 18.5%;Seimaibui 60%; a rice grain called yume sansui; nihonshudo +2;acidity is 1.8; amino acid 1.3.


The map above is in the general vicinity of where the brewer is located.  Zoom out to get a better geographical location.

Thanks for reading.  If you ever have a chance to sample this stuff do so before summer.  Really nice summer style sake.
