Neither snow, nor rain, nor heat, nor gloom of night stays the sake samurai from the swift attendance of their appointed sake tastings.
Now, not only was awesome sake being served, but the event was hosted by Masamichi Sanjo. Sanjo-san was the gentleman that gave me tour of the Kubota Sake Brewery (Asahi Shuzo) on my 2008 trip to Niigata.
These three sakes were delicious! Sanjo-san served the Senju Honjozo with some yummy rice crackers and some preserved salmon from Niigata. It was an earthy mix and a robust flavor! A really fun way to taste a big of Niigata local cuisine!
I had such a fun time at this tasting and stay tuned for my report on another kubota tasting shortly! Thank you to Sanjo-san for bringing such great sake to Decibel!
