Mr. Naohiko Noguchi (88 years old) is so-called "The God of Sake" as a living legendary sake Master Brewer and came back to sake industry again in 2017 since his second retirement in 2015. In 2008, he got "Ohjuhoushou" (黄綬褒章), a Metal with Yellow Ribbon from Japan government for his distinguished achievement as a sake Master Brewer. Due to his truly high popularity, Noguchi's sake will be out of stock very quickly within a couple of weeks after being brewed and it is very difficult to get even within Japan. Nama-sake means fresh sake, without "Hiire" (火入れ) pasteurization, to preserve a freshness of sake which can be rarely available outside of Japan due to a difficulty of temperature and quality control. Also this sake is "Muroka" (無濾過) (unfiltered) which you can enjoy a truly original taste of sake's umami and freshness.
"Gohyakumangoku" is low-polished and brings out the full-bodied flavor to the maximum. It features a sweet and sour citrus scent like an orange, creamy richness and gentle acidity. In contrast to the complex and heavy taste, the crispness of the throat will wash away the fat of the dish. It is a sake that is useful for the main timing of Japanese and Western dishes such as meat dishes and eel.
Alcohol degree is 19% which is a little higher than normal sake, but it is really awesome tasting to drink it on-the-rock like a whiskey because 18% sake will be diluted perfectly and keeping a sharp coldness with melted ice. Of course, you can enjoy its great Nama and Muroka taste without ice. Please enjoy this extremely rare opportunity to enjoy a masterpiece of "The God of Sake".
