KumakichiSince the end of last year, we have received a lot of new sake and nigori, but I hadn't tried this one, which is popular on social media. It is ranked high in the Nigorin picks of sake-loving influencers, but how does it taste? The thick, thick, thick sake that you can taste even before pouring it into a glass. The color is not like mixing ori or something, but the dense & slurpy feeling like a vanilla shake cannot be compared to other nigorizake, The rice flavor is dense, but when you take a sip, the strong acidity takes precedence and the sweetness is subdued. The taste is more refreshing than I expected. Rice polishing ratio: 65 Alcohol content: 15%.

KumakichiThe first bottle to be opened on New Year's Eve is Tobitsune - Tsubame Tori by Tobirazumi Honpo. This one is brewed with highly polished rice (35% Akita Sakekomachi), multi-acidic yeast No. 77, and Yamahai. It has the rich apple sweetness that is typical of Hirasen Honpo, but with a clear and elegant aftertaste! The price of 3,300 yen for a four-pack is a bit of a drawback, but it is a bottle that you will still want to drink! Rice polishing ratio: 35 Alcohol content: 13%.

KumakichiFinished work safely and started drinking on the first day of the New Year vacations The first bottle was a bottle of Denshogiku Oorigarami [Yamada Nishiki] from Kangiku Meikozo that I had been putting to sleep at Lemacom. The other day, I had a bottle of the non-origara-mi pattern, and it was quite delicious. The ogara-mi is even more promising! The aroma is sweet and mellow like honey, and when you take a sip, it is like an adult melon soda! The sweetness and the sizzle were so good that it didn't last a day..., We started drinking it at noon and it was empty in the evening, Good sake tastes good, but be careful not to drink too much..., Rice polishing ratio: 50% (100% Yamadanishiki) Alcohol content: 15

KumakichiHi Jay & Nobby, December was a busy month for us, but we made it through and drank too much. I want to drink a lot at the beginning of the year, too, so it's hard to hold back! Have a happy New Year!

まつちよIt's Dove's new sake 🕊. The first aroma is fresh and sweet. When you put it in your mouth, you will feel the full sweetness of the rice, followed by a slight tanginess on the tip of your tongue and a slight bitterness that finishes off the taste. This year's Hato is delicious too 🕊🍶. I have to go buy a bottle of zodiac. (PS) This year's 🕊 is a little sweeter than last year's. I wonder if they changed the flavor? I wonder if they changed the taste?

KumakichiI have had a whole series of new sake, and this year, this one exceeded my expectations! Kuzuryu Harekuchi Nama Sake This is a new sake from Kuroryu Shuzo, and a certain sake youtuber praised it as excellent, so I tried it and found it really tasty! Before I tried it, I had an image of Kuroryu as a clear and light sake, but Kutouryuu Harekuchi has a fruity taste! The specs are in the honjozo class, but there was no unpleasant alcohol taste, and the apricot-like dark sweetness and flavor after drinking it was very refreshing! I have had normal Kutouryu many times, but this is something else! It's a good bottle with good cost performance and I was satisfied! Rice polishing ratio: 65% (100% Gohyakumangoku produced in Fukui Prefecture) Alcohol content: 18%.

HIROKI Junmai Ginjo Black Label Black Label has a strong image of a clear and crisp taste, but after letting it sit in the fridge for the summer, the mild umami flavor took over and it was delicious! I enjoyed the sense of maturity in a good way and was careful not to drink too much! Rice polishing ratio : 40% for koji rice, 50% for kake rice Alcohol content: 16%.

Kuroryu Autumn Age Kuroryu always has a refreshing and light taste, but after the summer, it has a sweet and tasty flavor, which I love! Please note that it is so delicious that you can easily fall asleep after drinking too much of it! Rice polishing ratio: 55% (100% Yamadanishiki) Alcohol content: 16%.

KumakichiThis year, too, the season of doburoku has come! Twelve Roku Sweet and Sour Awaraku This is a doburoku that is sold only from October to March every year, and is one that we always repeat! It is a doburoku that retains its sludgy taste and the shape of the rice when poured into a glass. When you take a sip, the "amasan awaraku" (sweet, sour, and sweet sake) is a real treat! The rich sweetness of the rice, the bubbling sensation that pops when you crush the rice grains with your tongue, and the refreshing acidity are exquisite! I have had many doburoku, but it is hard to find a flavor I like better than this one, I'm looking forward to seeing how many times I can repeat this year! Rice polishing ratio: undisclosed Alcohol content: 5%.

KumakichiThe hard work that began in September has continued unabated, and exhaustion has set in, I wanted a little healing, so I opened a bottle of this one when I got off work early. Kawanakajima Genmai Kinmonishiki Junmai Ginjo Unfiltered Nama-shu Kawanakajima Genmai is one of my top 3 favorite sake in Nagano Prefecture, but it is getting harder and harder to buy, It's a delicious sake, but I'm thankful that I can drink it even a little bit! Kinmon-nishiki is Nagano Prefecture's rice suitable for sake brewing, and I love the balance between fruity and crisp, with a bitter aftertaste! Kawanakajima Genmai was also an exceptionally tasty sake! Rice polishing ratio: 55 Alcohol content: 16%.

KumakichiIt is the autumnal equinox, and the weather in Tokyo is finally autumn-like, While the summer sakes and hiyaoroshi (sake with a rich flavor) are being released, we opened a bottle of Kangiku's Kangiku from our stock! OCEAN99 Toukai Unfiltered, Once-filtered, Unmixed Junmai Ginjo This is a limited edition autumnal sake from Kangiku, but this one is a fire-irrigated junmai ginjo spec! We have always loved the sweet flavor and freshness of Shangiku's raw sake, but what about the fire-aged version? What? It was delicious, but the usual freshness was gone, and the aftertaste was more bitter. However, I enjoyed it a little bit! Rice polishing ratio: 55% (100% sake brewing rice) Alcohol content: 15%.

KumakichiWe managed to get through the extremely hot August and wanted to open a bottle of sweet sake for the big day! KURORYU KIJOZAKE This is a very popular light and dry sake from Kuroryu. Most kijoshu is thick and sweet, too sweet for my liking, but the kijoshu from Kuroryu and Shinmasa are delicious! From the aroma, it has a sweetness like grapes or flower honey, but once you take a sip, the elegant sweetness like wasanbon, elegant acidity and umami were delicious!

まつちよWe are working to protect 🕊 in Tokyo. I would be offended if I said it was expensive for 🕊san, but was it expensive because it is made from Hyogo Yamada-Nishiki polished to 50%? I wonder if Hanafuki is not good enough? Well, the top aroma is gentle but sweet with a sourness like yogurt. In the mouth, it has an elegant sweetness, but the slight sourness and bitterness make it finish cleanly. It is quite dry. I read on the bottle to be careful not to blow it out, but I guess it settles down after 3 months of production? (Tsumaranai) I bought it at Masushin Shohten in Ikebukuro at the end of June, and they had about a dozen in stock at that time, and according to their website, they still have some in stock 🕊.

KumakichiThe rainy season has begun in Tokyo, and every day is close to a heat wave, It makes me want to drink a refreshing beer, and at such times, I open a bottle of this beer that I can drink every year at this time of the year! Tasake Micro Bubble Nama Micro Bubble is a mellow sake, but its effervescence makes it as light and refreshing as cider! It has a familiarity with the land of its origin, but its high alcohol content makes it a very drinkable sake, so be careful not to drink too much! If you let it sit in the glass for a while, the carbonation weakens and it becomes sweet and tasty like rice wine, but it was still best to enjoy the shwash!

The Spring Shibori is a ginjo-shu and the Summer Shibori is a junmai-ginjo-shu, which is different, but both are brewed from the same Gohyakumangoku grape and have a refreshingly light taste. Kuroryu Summer Shibori Junmai Ginjo-shu A dry type with a slight fruity aroma and an impressive sharpness after each sip! It was a summer sake that went well with food, and could also be enjoyed chilled and without a tsumami! But be careful not to drink too much as it has a high alcohol content!

KumakichiTo get through this week's hard work, I wanted to drink a bottle of dark sweetness, so I opened this bottle. Yamahai Junmai Daiginjo Marutobi Limited Edition I love the Marubi series by Hirasen in Akita Prefecture because of its rich sweetness, but I had never had this label before! The normal Marubi is polished up to 60%, but the Betsuatsui is a Junmai Daiginjo class made from "Hyakuda", Akita Prefecture's preferred rice for sake brewing, polished up to 50%! The other day, I received a bottle of Momota and it was so delicious that I wanted to drink it, so my expectations were even higher! The first sip was elegant yet juicy honey apple juice! Not only is it sweet, but it also has a refreshing acidity that makes it easy to drink! It is delicious! Rice polishing ratio: 50% (100% Momota rice is used) Alcohol content: 15%.
