profile iconWe grilled some big shiitake mushrooms and had our favorite Tsukune skewers with cheese 🧀. The next sake was another one I've had a few times, Kaminokawa Taisetsu's Toku Jun Kitashizuku Nama! It's a special pure sake, but it's a fresh sake with no impurities! I've had Kamikawa Taisetsu many times, but I was reminded again that it is a delicious sake! I still ordered more dishes! The waitress laughed 😅 They seem to think we can eat that much 🙆‍♂️ extensive knowledge Rice used: Kitsushizuku (Hokkaido) Rice polishing ratio: 60 Alcohol content: 16%.

profile iconOtokoyama Sasauri is a special pure rice sake. Slightly sweet and sour aroma. It is refreshing and easy to drink. It is a delicious sake with a strong acidity and umami flavor. It is nice to be able to buy such a delicious sake at a supermarket.
Japanese>English
profile iconA little dry.
Japanese>English
profile iconThe aroma is very classic sake. It is a "kamishige" style sake, as it should be. It has a mild, mildly dry, refreshing taste. After drinking it down, you will feel a sharp sensation in your throat. The label has a cute flower design, but it is Otokoyama's label. I thought I would try Kamikawa Taisetsu for my first Hokkaido sake, but I couldn't beat the Hokkaido Fair that I saw... lol.

profile iconoh, yeah, I bought this for the label. However I was in the mood for a nigori and this was brewed 60km from where I am staying. The aroma is the typical nigori sweet note. The front is very bright and crisp. As the sake settles a lovely pear flavor emerges along with the heavy viscous body, making me think of a pear tart topped with vanilla ice cream. It finishes clean on the tounge with a light alcohol tinge on the back of the throat. Easy delightful drink.
profile iconI think I can enjoy this for a while when I come here. Taste it on the rocks with ice. This is also good🙆 extensive knowledge Rice polishing ratio 55 Sake degree +2 Acidity 1.5 Alc. degree 15-16

profile iconOn the first sip I tasted mint. a little surprising, but as I settled into drinking more, the floral notes stayed while highlights of muted savory notes interjected. This sake finishes sharp, and it's no surprise at 17.5%. This sake would pair well with spicy food. I am thinking more Indian and Nepalis cuisine.
profile iconfor recording Obtained through the Co-op's joint purchase Souvenir store at Sapporo Station Repeat because I saw it! Delicious!

profile iconSake series brought back from Hokkaido, Part 2 Just opened. The aroma is of an orthodox, crisp, traditional sake yeast yeast. The acidity is sharp and the mellow rice flavor is full-bodied. The acidity quickly subsides, and the astringency and spiciness are felt later, giving it depth. No complaints. It is good on its own and with a good side dish. A good everyday sake. I want to drink it again.

profile iconWhat will be the next drink? It was a red label. Niseko, which we have had several times in the past. It also has a nice aroma and the mouthfeel is like a Japanese pear! We were told that sakura ebi (sakura shrimp) was recommended for the current season, so we had it raw! It can be served with soy sauce and roasted sake, or eaten as it is, with the sweetness of the shrimp! Pork Shabu Salad 🥗! It goes well with fruity sake! extensive knowledge Alcohol content: 16° C Sake degree: ±0 Acidity: 1.5 Rice used: Comet Rice polishing ratio: 50 State:Heated

profile iconSweet aroma and a schwiffy mouthfeel. The aftertaste is also sweet. Really delicious, the first of the year.
Japanese>English
profile iconThe last spring sake of the season was Tokachi Sakura Light Nigori from Kamikawa Taisetsu Brewery, a newcomer to our group. When served without stirring, it has a soft sweetness, followed by a good amount of bitterness with spiciness. The balance is very nice and delicious! After stirring and pouring the second cup, the light nigori with the ori can be seen well, and the sweetness and umami have increased to the point where the spiciness disappears 😆. It was a spring sake with a light and soft mouthfeel but with a strong flavor 🌸🌸🌸

profile iconA mild minerality spreads on the palate with a gentle umami flavor. The wine is moderately satisfying to drink, yet it cuts cleanly through the palate.

profile iconToday, I opened dried fish under ice from Kushiro because it was close to the expiration date. We will enjoy it with "Kita no Katsu," a souvenir from Nemuro, which we had been saving for this day 🔥. When you open the bottle and pour it, you will notice a refreshing aroma of peppermint and mint. The mouthfeel is silky, clear and clean like a snowy landscape. The presence of brewer's alcohol is also clear, but there is no piquancy, and a sweetness like sugarcane cane can be felt. The aftertaste is clean and crisp. It is the perfect combination with the light and simple flavor of the ice fish ✨. The kelp soy sauce from Cape Nosabu is so good that I want to keep it on hand, and the northern land is a treasure trove of food and souvenirs 😋.

profile iconSake series brought back from Hokkaido, Part 3 Freshly opened. It was different from the one we drank at the brewery, a little younger. The aroma is not brown sugar, but sweet like a flower. The rice is full and delicious with the aroma. Surprisingly, it has a long, lingering aftertaste. When it ends, there is a sense of rice flavor and a floral aroma. This was the most popular sake among everyone. The taste of different sake rice is completely different, but it was delicious. I wish it would land in the Kanto area.

profile iconAt the sake brewery's tasting Thankfully, almost all the varieties for free. ▼ Comet Herbal green aroma with brown sugar-like sweetness. The raw sake was more floral and flowery. Both have good rice and pleasant sweetness. ▼ Kitashizuku Refreshing aroma like ramune. Delicious light graininess. ▼Ginpu Fresh aroma of grape and muscat. Fresh aroma. Refreshing acidity, a little spicy. Wine-like. Ikashiroshi I like this one, but I don't remember what it is. I don't want to make detailed comments because it is a tasting. After much worrying, we decided to welcome Comet. It is more delicious than I expected and I hope it will spread in the future.
