I don't have the vocabulary, but it was delicious! It was so easy to drink that I ran out to buy a second bottle 👀. Personally, I like sweet and umami sakes, and this one is by far my favorite of the bunch. ❤️ Quote You can taste citrus like orange peel and grapefruit.

This is Gekko from Koei Kiku. It was one of the 3-bottle set of Sakepo Masariya's "Home Drinking Support Set". I bought this set to get the "corked bottle," but I was lucky to find my favorite Koei-Kiku in the set, which has a strong gacha element. Moreover, I had been hesitant to purchase Gekko because of its price, so I felt it was fate that brought us together. I was afraid to open the bottle because the Snow Crescent I drank just before had the fastest launch speed when opening the bottle, but the bottle opened normally without any flying. The taste is shocking. The dense sweetness and overflowing deliciousness spread out the moment we drank it. The taste was deep and complex, with a hint of bitterness and a woody astringent nuance unique to Kouei Chrysanthemum. After filling the mouth with happiness, the fruity sweetness continues through to the aftertaste, and then recedes neatly with a sense of alcohol with a mellow aroma that passes through the nose. As one would expect from Koei Chrysanthemum, this is their flagship bottle. There was certainly enough satisfaction to justify the price. I am very interested to see if it has a gassy or more complex flavor.

Strong gas rises upon opening. The supernatant has a slightly sweet taste and is easy to drink. When the lees are mixed, the bitterness and sharpness of the aftertaste become more pronounced, changing the taste to one that is perfect for summer drinking. The strong gasiness and aftertaste are designed to go well with both Japanese food and key dishes.

There was a sizzling sound when the bottle was opened. The top aroma is a faint citrus aroma. When you drink it, it has a slightly carbonated and juicy feeling, and the sweetness and acidity spread out and become smooth and crisp. This is delicious. The nose is fruity. It is sweeter than Anastasia Green and gives the impression of being soft and smooth. It is like a sweet champagne. It is also easy to drink. It is good both on its own and with food. It went well with fried scallion with butter and Nagasaki sponge cake. It also has a sour taste, so it went well with sponge cake. Especially a favorite! Domestic rice Polishing ratio? %.

Kouei Kiku Twilight Orange The aroma is raw sake-like and alu-feeling. Sweet and juicy type of flavor! There is some acidity, but it may seem more subdued than the rest of the series! (I guess the others are just too strong, but this one has enough too?) I bought it for the first time in 3 years! I guess a bottle of Koei Kiku is more cosy than a bottle of Koei Kiku 😍.

(Brewer's comment) Kame-no-o" is a variety that is the root of famous rice brands such as "Koshihikari," "Hitomebore," "Akita Komachi," and "Tsuyahime. The quality of rice is hard, and in some years it melts, while in other years it does not melt at all, making it not an easy variety to produce. To be honest, we have not yet clearly grasped how to bring out the best of Kame-no-o. In thinking about how to make the most of it, I became interested in the idea of polishing Kame-no-o, and that was the beginning of brewing this sake. In the brewing process, we used a completely new brewing formula. We used less water and more koji than standard, and fermented it slowly for a long period of time with awa-ari yeast. The result is a clear sake with a body characterized by sweetness with acidity and viscosity. The most notable feature of this sake is its "acidity," which is so exquisitely expressed 😊. The addition of acidity to the juicy, clear base made the sake more colorful, and the refreshing aftertaste was perfect for the coming season.

Koei Kiku after a long time This time, a new product with 40% polished Kame-no-o The aroma has a lactic acidity that is typical of Kouei Kiku. The aroma has a strong lactic acidity that is typical of Kouei Kiku, with a hint of grain and malted rice, but also a hint of green apple and white flowery aroma. The aroma is very complex and deep. The taste has a really strong sourness at first, but the sweetness underneath is also clearly perceptible. The sweet and sour taste is different from the usual sweet and sour taste, but it has a very unique and interesting sweet and sour taste. Quite sweet, yet refreshing and easy to drink. Delicious! It is not for everyone, but the more you drink it, the more addictive it becomes.

It has an excellent balance of acidity and sweetness reminiscent of orange. When paired with tempura, the sharpness of the mouthfeel is slightly lessened, and the clean aftertaste stands out. The flavor has a wide range, so it will show various characters depending on the dishes to which it is paired.

If I'm not mistaken, this is the first time I've had a glorious chrysanthemum! I've always wanted to try it, so I'm glad! The liquor store I usually go to started selling it yesterday, and they had three different kinds, but I went with the Dusk Orange. I haven't compared the others, so I can't compare them, but I personally think the sweetness is a little strong. It is easy to drink, combined with the slightly low alcohol content (14), and since it is labeled Orange, it definitely tastes citrusy. It also has a nice aftertaste. I'm glad to be able to drink the honored chrysanthemum I've been wanting to drink for a long time. It was a good Saturday night.

There was a sizzling sound when the bottle was opened. The top aroma is slightly fruity. When you sip it, the slight carbonation, gentle acidity, and sweetness spread out, and the pleasant bitterness slowly fades away. The overtone is fruity. This is delicious. The overall image is well-balanced and gentle, like champagne or white wine. The alcohol content is a light 13 degrees, which makes it easy to drink. It is very refreshing. It is good on its own or with food. Goes well with pork cutlet. I would like to try other Koei Kiku as well. Especially my favorite! Saga no Hana Rice polishing ratio? % of rice Alcohol 13%.
