Yoichi Peaty & Salty Single Malt Whisky

Certainly well named - the Japanese are very exact with this description - “Peaty and Salty” nails it. I don’t drink a lot of whisky but as the weather cools down it was a great little tipple - one of the best I’ve had in recent years. Iodine/seaweed notes through the spirit. Not shy at 55% ABV and expensive for this 500ml bottle at $300 AUD but superb quality. — 18 days ago

Zuicho Junmai Daigingo Sake 2017

Correct spelling: Sawanotsuru 'Zuicho' Junmai Daiginjo Sake Very floral at first. With sweeter foods it became tart with a nice almost minerally bitter edge. Then over the course of dinner began to notice a citrus edge to the finish, almost a lime note. However after a Yuzu sorbet the sake took on a vanilla and grain flavour. Very interesting to sip. — 11 days ago

If you drink the whole bottle you will see a “UFO” - bubblegum (?) on the nose, toasty and savory rice. 1-year bottle aging — 11 days ago

Shigemasu Summer Dreams Unrefined Junmai Daiginjo

Ok this is not the right stuff. The stuff I am posting is a plum wine from the same brewing company and this thing is dynamite! Normally plum wine is syrupy and honey texture with too much sweetness (perhaps I only tried those ones until now). This wine is light in texture, fragrant of young plum and green apple in the nose with lots of acidity and sourness coming out! All off this is covered with slight amount of sweetness. Just amazing! — 18 days ago

Bride of the Fox Junmai Ginjo 2019

Fragrant, crisp and pure. The annual “fox-bride procession” celebrates an old legend of a mystical fox wedding with paper lanterns that mysteriously appeared on Niigata’s Mount Kirin. — a day ago

Higashiiwase Toyoma Japanese Sake in Domaine Ramonet Barrels 2015

This is one of the mildest smooth sake I’ve ever tasted. The French Oak add a complexity never tasted before in a sake. — 12 days ago
