profile iconHIRAN's Mile 2024. It has been 3 years since HIRAN Nikomaru was launched on March 22, 2021, and this bottle was released to mark a milestone in its growth. It is limited to 322 sets. It has a refreshing grapefruit-like aroma on the nose, a slight hint of chili, and the lightness of the original 14% alcohol makes for a refreshing impression. The mild sweetness, and the mild acidity and bitterness with a touch of citrus give it a refreshing sharpness. This is a bottle that makes us look forward to the further evolution of Hiran Nikomaru in the future!

profile iconEven I, with my stupid tongue, can tell. The mellow aroma reminds me of ripe bananas. The richness and sweetness are very good. This is the first sake brewed by Aizan, and I am impressed because I have never encountered Jyushidai. Chitashige 3970 yen

profile iconIt is sweet like prunes and smells like oily magic and goes away. It may be similar to Yokoyama 1814. Fruity and a little sticky. I bought this bottle when I went back to Nagasaki. Junmai namaishu is only available during this season, so I didn't hesitate to buy it ✨. I recommend pairing it with Chinese food as it has a strong flavor👍 It has become easier to get Hiran, Yokoyama and Fukkai (Fukuda) outside of the prefecture, but Rokujyuoshu is still not available in the Kansai area and there are many limited editions, so I'd like to keep up with them 💨. 720 mL ¥ 1,375

profile iconIt has a gentle taste with no sharp edges. It is a very refreshing and gentle sake with a full sweetness but not too sweet. It matches the Emperor Salmon Sashimi with its gentle taste that does not overpower it. It is a little weak in punch, but it seems to be easy to match with meals.
Japanese>English
profile iconIt is a very mild and easy to drink sake. It is moderate in spiciness, acidity, and sweetness, and has a good richness. If I had to sum it up, I would say it is a refreshing sake. It goes well with the sweet fat of salmon sashimi. I think it is rare to find a sake that is not sweet, not spicy, and gentle. I want to keep it in stock. I would like to keep it in stock.

profile iconIt has a slightly bubbly taste with gentle lychee and pear sweetness. The rich umami of Omachi comes through with a bang. The acidity is moderate and the umami lingers on the palate. The whole wine is refreshing. The overall effect is refreshing. Purchased at Yajima Sake Shop on the way back from seeing a painting in Hanakoganei, Tokyo. 🐈️🐈️.

profile iconThe second night was also ramen 🍜. Shirakaba Sanso's miso is also delicious 😋. Philando✨ found at a restaurant that Mr. Menshuoh had researched and found for us. The owner was a total ****, After listening to his explanation, I took this bottle that I was curious about and asked him, "Mr. XX, how much is this?" I was shocked at the price 😳. We each drank one and left immediately 😫. It's been a while since I've seen someone on their knees 🤣. By the way, this Philando was a rare raw sake ✨. While also juicy and sweet, It tastes like an easy-drinking wine 😋. Delicious but too expensive 🤣.

profile iconI bought this at Mori Sake Brewery on my last trip to Hirado! The president of the company was in charge of the cash register that day😆. He politely introduced us and told us that it tastes best chilled in a wine glass! Sweet and sour from the aroma Tastes like plum wine Slightly sticky texture A little sweet but not too sweet Slightly rice bran-like, but you can sense the grains and nuts that only low-polished rice can provide But still sweet 😃. Sweet and delicious as a dessert wine I had it with Nagasaki Fukusado sponge cake a few days ago Champagne split today 🤣. Half and half Pour in a 1:1 ratio Marriage of Philando and Champagne 😉. Makes it less sweet. Maybe just the right amount of sweet 🤔.
Japanese>English
profile iconThink Finland, but Philando Low-alcohol sake brewed by the Hiran-no-mori Sake Brewery Drank at the inn we stayed at in Hirado A super sweet dessert sake with low acidity! Maybe the sweetest sake I've ever had. I googled to find out how much sake it has! It's -70 degrees ‼️😳 No wonder it's sweet! The ladies in my house were raving about it✨ It's 500ml so it was a quick drink 🤣.

profile iconCold. Purchased at Fukuda Sake Brewery. I bought a lot of it, so I drank it all at once to reduce the amount. It is a sparkling type, not too sweet, not too spicy, and easy to drink, but it has 14% alcohol content. I am not a fan of carbonation, so the carbonation was stronger than I expected, and it hurt my nose. I think I prefer Nagasaki Bijin if they are made by the same brewer.

profile iconCrystal silver coloration. Melon, apple, etc., ethyl caproate. Ueshin powder, white dumplings, lime. Elegant sweetness, acidity is smooth, full-bodied and pleasantly bitter. While it has a sweet aroma, it is relatively dry and clean as a taste. Personally, I quite like the taste.
Japanese>English
profile iconIt is refreshing and goes well with fish. As expected of a Nagasaki sake 🍶 with sashimi.

profile iconNo cloying taste, too clean? It has a pleasant aftertaste. Surprisingly tasty. 4 stars

profile iconHannegi Shibori Junmai Gohyakumangoku. This Junmai sake is brewed by Yoshidaya using a very labor-intensive method called "Hanegi Shibori," in which sake is squeezed using a giant 8-meter-long tree. The pressing is adjusted with exquisite force and, as a result, the sake is not fully squeezed, thereby successfully eliminating any unwanted flavors!

profile iconThe second bottle was a Minamishimabara sake given to me by an acquaintance. This may be my first time to have a sake pressed by Hanegi 🤔. It was a classic type of sake with a yellowish tinge, with a strong rice flavor, yet mellow and delicious 🍶.
