The Bottle

 

 

 

Selected and blended with Billy Peated Malt and Eigashima Brewery’s Bourbon Cask Aged Lightly Peated Malt from the Saburomaru Distillery, distilled in 2018.
This is a supple and robust collaboration of Japanese craft distilleries, with the fresh, complex fruity character of the Eigashima malt boosted by the robust Saburomaru malt.

A blend of scotch malts, along with a selection of 2018 distilled hebdomadally peated malts from Saburomaru Distillery and bourbon cask aged lightly peated malts from Eigashima Brewery.
We used only malt base alcohol to create a gorgeous, multi-layered flavor.

Our Take

This is the second exchange of original sake from the Saburomaru distillery. We feel that both are quite unique bottles.

First of all, THIRD BATCH is notable for its sweetness. The sweetness that cannot be imagined from the aroma invades the mouth. Combined with the oily taste, you can feel the sweetness quite strongly. There is not much peat, and the sweetness is followed by citrus freshness, coniferous and minty woody notes. The flavor does not change significantly when watered down, and while the oily character is diminished, it does play a role in the drinkability of the beer. This is a bottle to be enjoyed slowly.

FOURTH BATCH has a more distinctive flavor. It is peculiar from the aroma to the taste, and features complex flavors of Saburomaru, Eigashima, and Scotch malts. This one has a light mouthfeel that makes the 61% alcohol content seem less noticeable, and when watered down, it shows a different side to THIRD BATCH.

When we actually experience the transformation of the original sake we encounter into a completely new flavor with its own individuality, we are excited by the hidden potential of the sake exchange. I am very much looking forward to the next sake exchange to see which distillery’s sake will show us its potential.
