Let's see if I spell this right, Tyku Sake, a Japanese import. It is a Junmai Ginjo with hints of peach.

Omakase sushi dinner at Morio's (...18-ish seat place that sometimes requires 3 months in advance reservations...) with 4 different sakes shared between 6 people. All of them were bought in Japan so no English on the labels.

47 - Black Cow (...at least that's what my wife's friend thought it translated to...)
48 to 50 - unknown / forgot

All were very good.

Joel - the Otoro was *excellent*!

52 - Gekkeikan

Friend gave us a commemorative bottle from the brewery but everything is in Japanese so have no clue what we drank. However, the bottle is very similar to their “Cap Ace” so think its probably that.
