Nabeshima Junmai Daiginjo Yamadanishiki Special A from Yoshikawa The first Saga No.1 Nabeshima in a long time! And the label is an austere golden brown 👑. The taste is a tangy sourness with a hint of apple flavor. The sweetness runs from the tangy sourness with a hint of apple flavor, and the bottle has a solid feel. I've been seeing a lot of Koei Chrysanthemum lately. but I would like to see Nabeshima once in a while. I wish I could see Nabeshima once in a while. Home drinking 584

Nabeshima純米吟醸 生酒 五百万石純米吟醸生酒
flos_lingua_est
This is my first Nabeshima! I never really had a chance to drink it before! I wanted to drink it, but I had been avoiding it for some reason, but I also thought that I would drink it someday anyway. I took the plunge and bought it, thinking that if I missed this opportunity, I probably wouldn't buy it. The aroma was slightly refreshing and elegant, not too strong. I heard that it has a melon ginjo aroma, but in fact, it has a refreshing ginjo aroma, although it cannot be called melon. When you drink it, you may think it is very dry because it has an unexpectedly classical mouthfeel, but the elegant aroma, slight bubbles, and soft umami give it an old-fashioned, gentle, but slightly glamorously dressed-up image. Taisho modern? LOL! The overall impression is that of Igarashi in many ways...aroma, effervescence, richness, fruitiness, and bitterness are suppressed and the taste is more mellow and light. I would say it is a little less aromatic, fizzy, and fruity than Kaze no Mori or Machida Shuzo. If we put them in a larger context, I feel that these four brands, including the three mentioned above, are somewhat similar. Igarashi is more of a mellow sake, while Nabeshima is more of a fresh sake, and their characters are easy to understand. I would like to compare Kaze no Mori and Machida Sake Brewery to see how they differ!

Good evening😊 I am surprised that this is your first Nabeshima. I drank this orange label with my first Nabeshima around 2010 and thought that a genius had appeared. Thank you for the detailed review.

Good evening, Mr. Hiraccio. I'm a bit biased because some brands are easy to buy and others are not so easy to buy. You're right, the balance and the fact that it can be enjoyed on its own is genius ✨.

A bottle that was included in this year's Matsuzaki Shinjuku store's Fukuju box.  The Shiboritate we had before was delicious, but this one is also easy to drink and tastes great!  It has little sweetness and bitterness, and is easy to drink with a short aftertaste.

大嶺冬のおとずれ原酒生酒にごり酒

I heard that it is a very popular sake, and since I couldn't even buy it last year, I was eagerly looking for it this year. I would like to praise myself for my effort and wonder how I was able to get it. I wonder if it's worth it.... The aroma is a gentle apple...a very delicious apple aroma...a gentle apple like Omine. When I tried it, I found it to be apple. I'm not supposed to be that good at pineapple or apple-scented sake mainly, but with such a soft aroma and mouthfeel, it's just delicious. This is amazing! It is really sweet, tasty, acidic, easy to understand, and very tasty! It's a little bit schwaty, which is also stimulating and tasty. And yet it is soft. Wow, I wish I had bought two bottles... I thought this sake was worth the price, just like "Abe" which I like to buy even though I feel it is expensive. I can clearly see why it is so popular. This is a gem that I will put on my repeat sake list for next year's cloudy sake season. I was very impressed!

Slightly cloudy, full-bodied, and delicious. ❣️ If you drink it with yakitori, ginkgo nuts and potato salad, you'll be able to drink it in gulps 😁. I can drink it in gulps 😁. Home drinking 570

Mr. Harry. Good evening. I am sure that the Chinese cabbage and pork belly nabe and Yoshida Brewery go well together. I think I heard from the Yoshida brewery before that they want it to go with vegetables and other regular meals. Many of the brewers are from Noto, and the brewery in Kaga is very hard to find. Drink it!

Good evening, Ms. Shieri. Since there are two of us with my wife, if I buy Chinese cabbage or something like that, I have to work hard to consume it. I have to consume it, and it goes well with pork belly. I'm half househusband, so it's easy 😁.

Good evening, WOM 🌇. It is indeed a very hard time there, isn't it? I know how hard it is to watch from afar on TV, but there is only so much we can do. I understand how hard it is, but what we can do is limited. Donate money, consume local products, I hope that normalcy will be restored soon. ❣️

Mr. Harry. Thank you very much here as well. Yes, it is true. There is only so much I can do in the neighborhood, and I think it's important to keep the sake community going, not just transiently.

WOM, I see, especially the Noto region is isolated and it seems to be very difficult to rely on experts and the Self-Defense Forces, and there are many sake breweries that have been hit, so I will seek some form of support 😀.

Tedorigawa白壽 純米にごり純米生酒にごり酒
flos_lingua_est
This is the third year that I have started drinking Tetorigawa Shirojyu. The year before last was so delicious that it was a shock... Last year was a reaction to that impression and was not so memorable, but this year I was able to drink it better than last year! The citrus acidity is refreshing and crisp, and the umami and bitterness are more impressive than the sweetness. I wonder what it is...it is like eating a tangerine with a strong sour taste under a kotatsu (a table over the kotatsu in winter). Sour tangerines have a suppressed sweetness, but I guess it is the same with sake. I was really looking forward to tasting it a few days later when the acidity had gone. The second day tasted like a grapefruit sour with a pleasant (this is an important point) bitterness. The third day was right in the middle of my favorite, and I finished it without thinking. On the contrary, I don't remember. On the 4th day, the bitterness comes forward a bit, but it is still delicious and has a grapefruit sour taste. It was very tasty because it was able to balance the freshness and the intensity of the alcohol! It would be great with fatty foods such as chicken tatsuta or grilled mackerel, or sour foods such as Japanese-style stewed chicken wings with vinegar.

Shiboritate Nama-no-Mazake I chose this sake because I wanted to drink the sake It's dated to the day, November 9. He wants me to drink it fresh within a month. Alcoholic and 20 degrees alc. ❗️ I'll have it on the rocks immediately 😋. Clear and colorless, with a holo-bitter sweetness typical of aluzome. When drunk on the rocks, it has a mildly bitter sweetness that is typical of Aruzoe. It's delicious on the rocks! I'm going to get drunk soon😅 Homemade chimaizuke goes well with it 😋❣️ Home drinking 499

Ohmine Junmai3粒 無濾過生原酒 山田錦 Ohmine 3grain純米大吟醸原酒生酒無濾過
flos_lingua_est
This is my second Omine since I bought a cup of sake some time ago. I had a good impression of this sake because it was so delicious even though it was in a cup, but I had been avoiding it because it is not easy to buy. I heard that this unfiltered raw Yamadanishiki sake was very well received, so I bought it anyway without looking at other sake, lol. I don't know how to describe western Japan's sake, so to use a metaphor from eastern Japan, this fruitiness with hints of apple, muscatel, and white peach is like a sake from Nagano! It has a very rounded and gentle mouthfeel, like a Shinshu Kamerei. In other words, it's really delicious! Daimine is amazing. The freshness, sweetness, umami, and richness like brown sugar make it a monster sake that the more you savor it, the deeper you will get into it. The closest I've had so far is Tenryohai Shiboritate. No wonder it has a big fan base, and I may end up chasing after it. The lightness of the 14.5 degree alcohol content makes it easy to drink without even thinking about it. It has three times the alcohol content of beer, so it's dangerous, dangerous, dangerous!
