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.

Kab, good evening 🌛I see that you drank the Houjun right away 😊The toji was trained in drunken whale and Tosa shiragiku, so maybe there are many sake suitable for food 🤔I haven't had a chance to drink the Houjun properly yet, I would like to 😄.

Good evening, Nemuchi. Right on schedule😊. Intuitively, it was a melon cider with added sourness, which I liked 🫧. Maybe it's a light-weight oriented one.

The 7th Matsuo Taisha Sake-1 Grand Prix 8 Oita Sake's Houjun booth, where we drank a while ago. Founded in 1868, this sake brewery was closed in 1988. In 2008, the brewery resumed production upon the return of the sixth generation, Junpei Komatsu, who trained at the Ikemoto Brewery (Biwa no Chouju) in Shiga, the Drunken Whale Brewery, and the Senju Brewery in Kochi. The small, family-owned brewery is working to revive Oita Mitsui, which disappeared in the 1960s. Houjun aims for "sake that plays a supporting role. Houjun Special Junmai Orikagarami It has a lactic acid taste, and is not too sweet, but has a clean and crisp finish. Bottle-fermented, lightly cloudy. Houjun Shiro Koji Junmai Namaishu The freshness of the nama-shu stands out more than the acidity, compared to the hi-ire sake we drank the other day. The hi-ire sake was very sour, though. There is a place where you can buy Hojun, so let's drink Oita Sake as well.

Hi Nemuchi 😃 I'm curious about Houjun, as it seems to be my favorite strain and is surprisingly available at major liquor stores 👀. Orikagarami sounds delicious 😋.

Kab, good evening 🌛I haven't had much luck with the Yujun, but the Shiro Koji was pretty tart 😅The Orikarami was a bit modern, but it was nice and sharp with a low sweetness 😋Please try the Yujun if you see it 😊.

Matsuo Taisha Sake-1 Grand Prix 8 It's been a long time since I had a chance to drink this sake, as it's not sold very often. I drank White Koji Junmai Namaishu I had a fire-aged version in the past and was impressed with it. This is the sake that Nemuchi-san posted about drinking at home the other day! Rice is Oita Mitsui Moderately sweet and sour. In a past post, he wrote that it was like wine yeast, but I guess he felt that way because of the strong acidity. Easy to drink with low alcohol content. I prefer nama-zake to hi-ire. Orikarami Nama Sake I've had it at home in the past. The rice is Gin-no-sato. The impression of the past is still the same, bursting with the flavor of rice. On the scale of sweetness and spiciness, it is sweet, but the taste is quite dry.

Usa City, Oita Prefecture. Komatsu Sake Brewery Co. Houjun Junmai Shu, white malted rice sake, made with 100% Oita Mitsui. I was thinking that I haven't drank much Oita sake, and then I found this bottle of Houjun. Oita Prefecture is my mother's birthplace, so I think I'll buy a bottle and take it with me. I'll have it cold. The color is a light cloudy yellow. If you look closely, you can see air bubbles and a slight oriole-like substance floating in the water. The top aroma is mild and slightly citrusy. The mouthfeel is very citric acid-like from the start. The sweet and sour taste is more acidic than sweet, and the aroma on the nose is yogurt-like. The use of 13% low alcohol leaves a sour lump on the tongue even after swallowing, a sourness that is typical of white malted rice brewing. I could say it has a white wine-like finish, but I think it is similar to bcaa, which I used to drink during muscle training. Ingredients: Rice (domestic), Rice malt (domestic) Rice ratio: 100% Oita-Mitsui Rice polishing ratio:60 Alcohol content: 13%.

Thanks for the week! Today we drink our first Oita sake 🍶. The aroma is juicy like muscat. There is a little bit of ori. The second half of the mouthfeel is sharp and spicy. It is delicious with fried bean sprouts, bean sprouts and eggs in a Chinese style ✨.
