It's been a while since I've had my favorite Akirika. It was my first aragoshi sake, so I was very excited before drinking it. The mouthfeel is freshly pressed junmai sake, with a strong rice flavor, acidity, and gassiness. It reminds me of a summer sake, but it is a fresh sake only available at this time of year. It has a refreshing aftertaste with a hint of sweetness from the aragoshi-gashi, making it a good match for all kinds of food. The second and third pictures show Akirika's sake bonbon chocolates. The owner of the sake shop said he was a little surprised that such a hard core sake brewery like Akirika would sell such a product. In my opinion, the sake bonbon is a delicious collaboration of the dry sake flavor and chocolate. On a side note, today I went for a drive for the first time in a while and visited that bench by Lake Biwa. It was introduced on NHK last month, so it was quite crowded. It was so crowded that I had a hard time taking pictures.
