Kaze no Mori's Aburicho Sake Brewery's first sake to be entered in the National New Sake Competition in 24 years. The aroma is banana-like and fruity, as is typical of Kaze no Mori, with a hint of minerality from the super-hard water. The main taste is a clear banana-like flavor, and the taste is quite voluminous but has a good sharpness. The banana taste is a little sweet, but it is not sweet at all. On the contrary, the mineral bitterness comes out at the end and gives it a refreshing aftertaste. Regardless of one's taste, the overall balance or sense of perfection of this sake is amazing! It's not the type of sake that's suited for competitions, but it's a delicious sake with a Kaze no Mori character.

This is for the national sake competition this year. It's so nice and less acidic. This brand uses No.7 yeast, so it can remind you of Masumi, 真澄. This is different from other Takacho and Kazenomori series. I can feel the brewery's desire for winning this competition from this sake.

Hanamura-san, which had been put to sleep. When the bottle is opened, it has an elegant aroma like nectar. It is full of sweetness and disappears with a moderate bitterness. It is a good junmai sake 🍶. 1,716 yen including tax

Softly sweet, fruity nose. Contains rummy, lychee, or a bit of muscat flavor. Slightly caramelized aroma in the back. Rich, smooth sweetness and cohesive flavor with a hint of bitterness. The sweetness spreads out, but does not run down the middle, and it is very crisp and clean. It has a sense of elegance. It is delicious. I enjoyed 4 cups, sharing with my friend, when I could have ordered 3 cups if there was no waiting line. Uoso

Drinking at home. Today's drink is a little different, a very dry one. Roasted duck, yakitori, and aji no tataki. The alcohol content is high at 17 to 18 degrees, so the spiciness is followed by umami, and then it disappears. It goes well with even slightly spicy dishes. It was perfect for a mealtime drink.

If I could do a drinking contest between Bakuren and Kudo Ute, I would do it. The simple green label seems unusual, but this one is the one I like, easy to drink with a sweet fruity flavor. Well...both are too delicious.

My favorite aroma. The sweetness is not that strong but it tastes amazing 😋. The aftertaste when you just open it is so pungent that it makes you think there are spices in it. I was surprised when I just opened it, the aftertaste was so pungent that I thought there were spices in it. But the sourness and bitterness don't bother me in the aftertaste, it's very refreshing. It's good to drink it with a glass of wine. ★★★★☆4.5

#Drinking at home The flavor and bitterness come at the same time, and while you expect it to be robust, the flavor quickly recedes, leaving a crisp, bitter aftertaste, so it will be even more delicious when paired with food than when drunk alone. It will go well with cheese, simmered dishes, and any other dishes with a strong flavor. The ostentatious subtitle "glutinous rice hot brewed in a four-step brewing process" might scare some people away, but it can be enjoyed without any particular discomfort.

The 7th Matsuo Taisha Sake-1 Grand Prix㉛ The time was already over and we went to the booth of Seimasa Sake Masamune in preparation for the clean-up. You didn't come to the "Traveling SAKE" special on Nagano sake at the Hankyu Department Store last time, did you? I asked him a question, and he replied, "No, I didn't." I was going to have a drink with him. Seimasa Masamune is named after "Seishu," which means "vigorous sake. Sei Masamune omatsuri carp Junmai Ginjo Unfiltered Nama Orikarami It was fruity and had a nice citrusy acidity. This brewery also seems to be participating in 59 sake breweries, and bouken told the brewery staff that he is a classmate of his and supports the event. Department store tasting events are difficult to staff, the main focus is on IWC champion saké, and there seems to be some political talk with Nagano Prefecture. It was good to hear other behind-the-scenes stories such as the Nagano Sake Brewers Association's tasting events. So excuse the massive event posting 🙏 I still love events where you can taste a variety of sake 😋.

Store Drinking. The color is clear. The aroma is soft, gentle and sweet. When sipped, it has a firm sweetness. It is about the same sweetness as the Honmaru that was drunk before. When tasting it, there is a little sourness and astringency in the aftertaste. I wonder if this was not the case with Honmaru 🤔. The finish is a lingering, lingering taste. The ginjo aroma is slight but has a good spread. I want to drink Jyushidai every once in a while 😊.

Ninth one 🍶. I couldn't get a picture of the Koei Kiku, so I passed. I heard it became very hard to stock as a result of the increase in the number of four-pack bottles 😭. I wonder if there will be fewer opportunities to drink it. Too bad 😢

Tenma Daijukai (¡°Tenma Sake Association¡±) This sake is named after Governor Yoshimura And an illustration of a mysterious person on the label Where is Governor Yoshimura? Where? It's a very typical mature, slightly dry junmai sake, and it's good warmed up. It's the type of sake I'd like to drink on a regular basis, but it's more of a souvenir. I misunderstood. I'd like to buy it if it were available!

Tenma Taishukai 2024 ④ The day before, I tasted Sakakamatsu from this brewery at a liquor store in Ikuno Ward. He asked me if I was going to the Tenma Sake Festival. I've been to this brewery and bought sake before. I think it was a brewery in Osaka, but closer to Wakayama and near a fishing port. I drank Junmai Ginjo Natsusei Nemuchi-san confirmed with the brewery that it was the same Sakakamatsu Natsusei that I drank the day before. Hmmm? When I drank it the day before, I had the impression that it was a summer sake with good flavor and drinkability, but something is different... Is it the temperature range? It seems too thin or too light 🤔. Summer Ginjo This is also a summer sake. Similar to Junmai Ginjo, but this one is spicier.

Today is my first visit to a liquor store. Sakurada Sake Shop in Ikuno Ward. They recently started an installation site, and I had a vague idea of the brands they carry, so I decided to go there. It's a little far from the station, but I guess Kintetsu Imazato Station or Sennichimae Shoji Station are the closest ones. The brands they carry are Kubota, Horaisen, Kirinzan, Sagata, Naniwa Masamune (Sakamatsu), Tamagawa, Katano Sakura, Otters, various sake from Meimon Shukai, etc. There is also a PB sake called Naniwa Sakura, brewed by Yamano Shuzo of Katano Sakura. They are open on Sundays. When I asked if they had any 4-gou of Sakamatsu sake, they said they only have 1-masu bottles. I asked them if they had any 4-gou of Sakamatsu, but they said they only had one bottle.... Then they asked me if I would like to try a sample. I decided to try it. The rice was smooth. It is rare for a brewery in the Kansai region to use "masugura" rice. I think there was also a sake made with Asahi no Yume. It has a gorgeous ginjo aroma and a slightly sweet, yet somewhat robust flavor. The quality of the sake seems heavy for a summer sake. I've bought Naniwa Masamune's Natsusei at a brewery in the past, but I wonder if the contents are the same 🤔. The owner was very nice and I will visit again 😊. The 3rd and 4th pictures are retro vending machines I found on the way 😳. The sample I saw was released in 1998, so I wonder if it was working until the middle of the Heisei era?

Delicious. I drank it for the first time and it is very easy to drink with a good balance of aroma and taste. I paired it with sushi and chawanmushi (steamed egg custard), and it matched very well with the dry taste.

I bought it because I had never seen it before at Aeon. I think it is a little sweet and peculiar. It seems to go well with meat dishes. I usually drink it at room temperature, but I think it would be better to chill it thoroughly.

Recommended by my favorite liquor store. Oh, it's delicious. The sake rice is Hida Koshihikari, which is rare. It has a fruity aroma, fresh and shwashy, not too sweet and sticky, and easy to drink. ‼️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
