It is a slightly sparkling "orikarami" with the specifications of Chiebijin Junmai-shu, which won the "President's Award" at the "KURA MASTER" held in Paris, France. The reason for the rabbit is that it is a sake made by a rabbit lover. The label is also stylish. It is a slightly tangy, cloudy, thick sake. It is mildly sweet with a hint of apricot. It is fruity, but the acidity is not that strong and quite delicious. Camembert goes quite well with it. I think it goes well with meat as well. This is quite tasty.

This is also a 3-day record. Chiebijin was not enough, so I threw in a small bottle. This is the pink label of Yatsuka, which I have come to like! It feels more rounded than Chiebijin. Delicious!

The sake fair was being held in Kyushu, so I chose one of the sake from the fair. Wakapai. I made a mistake. It is Waka Botan. I think this is the first time. It is Sanwa Shuzo, famous for "Iichiko" shochu, isn't it? It is totally different from shochu. It is sweet and delicious. If you ask whether it is juicy or not, it is not so juicy. It is the opposite of shochu. It is full of the feeling of rice. I wanted to drink it at home with my favorite type. I wanted to take home Wakapai, too. The people who know Wakapai are on this side. The young people I drank with didn't know.

This Sake is fruity and has a soft mouth feel. Strong aroma of rice when opening the bottle. There are nice flavors of pear and melon. The soft and juicy mouth feel makes me want to have another sip. The finish is clean with a slight hint of caramel. A gold medal winner in the 2023 US National Sake Appraisal.

Nemuchi-inspired. This is my first time drinking Orikagarami, but I am interested in this sake because it seems to be a food sake type. It is a sake from Kyushu, which is far away from here, but it was recommended as the most popular sake at a liquor store. The bottle was opened once without any problem (it was a stopper). The aroma is rather mild, slightly melon-like. The aroma is rather mild, slightly melon-like, and there is a gaseous feeling. When you drink it, it is rather spicy, and the spiciness is preceded by a cider-like feeling, with a slight sourness like apple cider vinegar, which turns into bitterness and gradually raises. The sourness and bitterness complement the food. It goes well with slightly dark pumpkin and deep-fried tofu stew. The official recommendation is to warm it up to 50-60°C, so we warmed it up to 50°C on the third day. The aroma became milder, and as expected of a gas. The aroma becomes milder and the gassy feeling disappears. The melon feeling is gone and it tastes like sweet and sour kiwi, becoming spicy and sharp. The modernity remains, but the sourness becomes stronger as the sake warms up. The sourness disappears and the taste becomes more pleasant, but we think we prefer it at 60°C, where it is sharp and crisp.                                       It is not outstanding, but it is a light nigori that suits my taste.

The weather is getting warmer! Summer sake with many blue bottles is nice, but this time I was attracted to the orange labels! Psshhhh...open the bottle. It was softly sweet and faintly fragrant. The label on the back said "dahlia," and it is indeed 👍yellow in color, and may resemble a medium sized flower. It was delicious!

I had never heard of this sake, even though it is from Oita. Of course, it was my first time. Slightly fruity aroma. It has a clean white wine taste. Gradually, it has a classic dry taste. Ideal as a food sake.

In fact, it has already been 4 days since I started drinking it. It has a robust flavor and, according to the store, is made by a shochu maker, so it certainly has a strong sake taste. The rice polishing ratio is 55%, and the alcohol content is 17%. It is easy to drink because it has no unpleasant taste and goes well with sashimi. Today, we are having it again with yellowtail from our hometown and tuna from a local restaurant. It is the best!

It has a dry and tangy taste. But it is easy to drink, not too much liquoriness. I drank it at room temperature, but it would taste even better chilled 😊🍶.
