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.

Azumaichi and Isojiman

Drinking at Tamanegiya in Tokyo.

Azumaichi Junmai Daiginjo Shizukushibori Tobintori Show Selection (東一 純米大吟醸 雫搾り 斗瓶取り 選抜酒), R3BY – seimaibuai (精米歩合) of 39%. Nice and elegant, lovely on the palate.

Isojiman Nakatori Junmai Daiginjo 35 (磯自慢 中取り 純米大吟醸35), 2022 – seimaibuai (精米歩合) of 35%. Nice nose of banana, fragrant notes of fermented rice, sweet, slight hint of savory fermentation on the palate. Still very rounded.

Tabaruzaka 46 (田原坂46) - very nicely balanced, some sweetness on attack but gets a little drier.
