Hakuryu Ume-shu sake – from the wine virgin

The last sake of the evening, Hakuryu Ume-shu,  was the sweetest. It was described to me beforehand as a “juice box,” and this description was pretty accurate. The smell was a little moldy, and while it didn’t smell sweet, it definitely tasted of plums.

It also looked a lot like apple juice. I don’t know if it was my mind playing tricks on me, but I could also taste a little apple in it as well as the plum. It was very sweet, and is considered a dessert sake. This was probably my second favorite of the night, with the sparkling Ozeki being my first.

The evening was really fun and intriguing. I was really excited about Sake night mainly because I have never had it before and had no idea what to expect. We had a great turnout and the sakes definitely seemed to spark some fun conversation. Next week I’ll be reviewing wines from strange places, which was the theme of our event this past friday!
