Next is "K Katsuragawa" which I often drink as a summer sake or something! This is the first time I've had a regular jungin type 👍. The aroma is soft and almost like a western pastry. The mouthfeel is moist and immediately afterwards the rice flavor is clear and delicious. Perhaps it is because it is a jungin type, but the full flavor of the rice can be felt more clearly than anything I have ever had before. It is truly mellow. When tasting it, the flavor is somehow reminiscent of yaki-sale or gyoza dumpling skin!

They said it was a prototype for the 2025 competition. Fruity, sweet and very tasty. I wanted to try the regular line as well.

KATSURAGAWA, which had been laid up for about a year and a half. It's too early to tell, but I'm looking forward to a summer sake on the rocks, and this time I'll have a glass of the standard warmed sake 🍶. When I opened the bottle and poured it, the aroma was freshly cooked and fluffy, like rice cakes or rice. It is a four-step glutinous rice brewing process. The mouthfeel is smooth like Gunma sake, but gradually a gentle and deep sweetness like sugar or spuds spreads gradually. When heated, it has a full-bodied, rice-like flavor. The sweetness is not too strong, but rather relaxing. Perfect for enjoying in the colder months. The sweetness itself is more subdued than the normal type, but on the other hand, you can fully enjoy the cleanliness that is typical of Gunma sake, which is a good balance!

As the label says, "full flavor" is the perfect word for this sake! By the end, I was able to taste the moderate sweetness that is unique to sake. It is easy to drink, but the dishes to pair it with are a matter of consideration. It would be better with light white sashimi than oily tuna. It also seems to be good with simmered turnips and cabbage, and nabe (one-pot dish), as it moderately drowns out the bitterness of vegetables.

Recent series of small bottles. It is served warm. The palate is clear and the rich sweetness spreads. The deep umami spreads gradually and the aftertaste is short and fades away. The label is full of souvenirs, but it was a delicious sake perfect for heating up. ***

home brewing, a gift from the house! Golden than I thought! Sweet aroma like sake lees. It was easy to match with snacks though it's very tangy. It went well with sea bream sashimi and even potatoes in meat sauce 🍝.

I meant to post this yesterday but fell asleep as usual. It still feels like summer, but I guess it's the change of season 🍁. When I opened the bottle and poured it, the aroma was fruity and full-bodied. The standing aroma is similar to melon or watermelon. The mouthfeel is smooth and clean, as is typical of Gunma sake, with a mild sweetness that is typical of Maikaze. It is more acidic than other Maikaze series, and has a sweet and sour taste with a hint of lychee! If you focus on the fullness of the taste, it can also be banana-like. The crisp acidity lingers in the aftertaste, which is reminiscent of citrus fruits. The sweet fullness typical of "Katsuragawa" is well matched with the gentle sweetness of Maikaze! The "Akagisan" and other Maikaze series are still sleeping, but we can't wait to see what next year brings✨.

As the summer is drawing to a close (the heat is still on), I opened a bottle of "Katsuragawa" sake on the rocks, which I was looking forward to drinking again this year! And the back of the bottle is falling apart due to condensation again😇. When we opened the bottle and poured it, the aroma was sweet and fluffy, typical of "Katsuragawa". It is a bit sour and comes in through the nose as if it is cold on the rocks. The mouthfeel has a pettiness by default, but on the rocks it is smooth and silky. It has a fluffy aroma like sweet rice crackers and a syrupy sweetness of shaved ice. As the ice melts, it becomes lighter and more enjoyable ✨. The lingering finish has a slightly tangy, spicy acidity and a tropical fruitiness, and the smart finish keeps the saké going! While listening to the chirping of autumn insects 🍶. I think it's time to open a bottle of "Akagisan" summer sake!

Purchased from a brewery Thin but sweet aroma. It is easy to drink without being alcoholic. The taste is spicy, sour, and bitter. It is like eating a bunch of grapefruits. The aftertaste is bitter. As someone who tours breweries, I am very happy when there are limited editions. I bought it without hesitation.
