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.

Sake and umeshu

Lunch at Hidden.

Dewazakura AWA Sake (出羽桜 AWA Sake), H31BY - sweet nose of fermented rice, lots of banana.

Juyondai Tokubetsu Honjozo Honmaru Kakushin (十四代 特別本醸造 角新 本丸), R3BY, from isshobin - seimaibuai (精米歩合) of 55%. very sweet but clean and fresh. Melon and banana notes.

Juyondai Nakatori Sekibanomachi Junmai Ginjo (十四代 中取り 赤磐雄町 純米吟醸), R2BY, from isshobin - made with 80% Omachi (雄町) rice from Sekiban (赤磐) and a seimaibuai of 50%. Lots of glutinous rice notes, and while still very sweet, this was much richer with more depth on the palate.

Yamanokotobuki Furufuru (山の寿 フルフル), from isshobin - made with Alphonso and Irwin mangoes.

Milk Tappuri Ichigo No Umeshu (ミルクたっぷりいちごの梅酒) - WOW! Even though this was meant to resemble strawberry milk, the flavors of strawberries were actually much more intense than I expected. Super like!

Mellow Mellow Melon Umeshu, from isshobin
