This is still a work in progress as I upload tasting notes and wine labels from as far as 1999... Check back once in a while to get the updates.

More crazy sake in Tokyo

Drinks at Tamanegiya (酒たまねぎや) in Tokyo.

Miinokotobuki Miyabi Selection No. 1 Nakatori Junmai Daiginjo (三井の寿 中取り純米大吟醸), 30BY – seimaibuai (精米歩合) of 40%. Lots of banana in the nose, and showed fermented flavors a little later.

Azumaichi Junmai Daiginjo Tobintori Show Selection (東一 純米大吟醸 斗瓶取り 選抜酒), 27BYseimaibuai (精米歩合) of 39%. More elegant, a little more pure. Sweet attack followed immediately by a big, strong, and spicy palate while the nose was soft and elegant.

Hatsukame Show Selection (初亀鑑評会), 30BY – apparently this changed to being a junmai daiginjo (純米大吟醸) last year. Master took 34 of the 36 bottles made. More acetone in the nose, with a hint of sharpness. Slightly sweet on the palate.

Isojiman Daiginjo 28 Nobilemente (磯自慢 大吟醸 ノビルメンテ 28), 30BY - seimaibuai (精米歩合) of 28%. More intense nose, more depth on the palate. Nose also showed sweetness and banana, but a little sharper, and seemed more complex.

Isojiman Nakatori Junmai Daiginjo 35 (磯自慢 中取り 純米大吟醸35), 26BYseimaibuai (精米歩合) of 35%. Tons of fruity notes like banana and musk melon in the nose. Lovely and really sweet and smooth on the palate.
