#Alcohol content 15% #Polishing ratio 55% #Shiboritate #Sake brewed with Kame-no-o, a fantastic sake rice, as the hanging rice and Yamada-nishiki as the koji rice. This is new sake, fresh! But it is thick and slightly rich. Slightly sweet like a ginjo-shu.

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?

I was drinking it thinking it was light, but it had a vanilla-like aroma that reminded me of Kikuyu. It was easy to drink. Sake meter / +2.0 Acidity/1.7 Amino acidity/1.0

Gentle ginjo aroma. Rich sweetness to the graininess of Kami no Ho🌾. After the bitterness, the acidity is noticeable 😳. Fruity taste for sure 😋. I heard it's rather dry, but it felt sweet to me 😅. Sweet and tasty dark middle body 🥂. On the day of the inspection, I had Hakata Ramen for the first time in a while near where I left my car 🚗. It was a rare occasion for me to have a second bowl of ramen 😋. 100% Kami no Ho from Mie Prefecture, 60% polished rice Alcohol level 16%, Sake meter +3 Light ⭐️⭐️ Brilliant⭐️⭐️ Sweetness⭐️⭐️⭐️ Bitterness⭐️⭐️⭐️✨ Acidity⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Kick⭐️⭐️⭐️ Likability⭐️⭐️⭐️

100% Yamadanishiki produced in Iga, Mie Prefecture Polishing ratio 50%. Alcohol content 15%. Sake meter: -3.3, Acidity: 1.5 (reference) Fat bottle opened 5/3 and posted 5/21 I've been drinking Gizaemon in one cup at a fish-based izakaya where I often go for a drink (report posted on 2022.10.4), but this is the first time I've seen a four-pack bottle! I have to admit, I was taken by the jackets ☺️ swimsuit 👙🤣. It's a summer sake bottled from freshly squeezed new sake, once fired, and has a refreshing aroma after opening the bottle! It has a refreshing aroma with a hint of marijuana and almost no alcohol! When you put it in your mouth, the refreshing sensation is very pleasant and there is no messiness at all! So, you can enjoy it if you cool it down and drink it while savoring the refreshing sensation and feeling the change in flavor as the temperature gradually rises. Delicious! About GW I watched my daughter's badminton tournament for the first time. This tournament was a regional qualifier mainly for 3rd graders, and only my daughter and 2 other 2nd graders participated, including one from another school. One of the 2nd graders was the winner of the 1st grade tournament (my daughter came in 3rd), and although her opponent was good, she persevered to win in a full set 🎉 She lost in straight sets to a 3rd grader in the next round, but I was able to see how much my daughter had improved after watching her fight back even when leading 🎉 It was a great day for me to see how much she had grown 🥰.

A set to compare drinks! Junmai Ginjo is THE dry taste. The Junmai Daiginjo has the sweetness of rice spreading softly as soon as you drink it.

Sweetness: 3 Umami: 3 Astringency: 2 Acidity: 2 Bitterness: 3 Fullness, body: 3 Flavor: Apple The color is almost transparent, and the head aroma is soft and raw. On the attack, the sweetness and umami of the rice smoothly passes through the nose, followed by an apple-like lingering aroma. The bitterness that lingers at the end is not heavy at all, but it is still very tight. Although the alcohol content is 13%, you can enjoy the sweetness and umami of the rice and drink it easily without getting tired of drinking it 😆. On the second day, there is no particular change in texture as the sake is still stable as a fire-brewed sake. It is still an excellent food sake and goes well with teriyaki yellowtail and canned mackerel! Delicious!" but more like "Oh, it's so good!"...lol

This sake was made by the Sudo Honke, said to be the oldest sake brewery in Japan. It was a junmai daiginjo with a subtle ginjo aroma and a sharp taste at the end.

Hankyu Brewery Festival (6) This was the first appearance of Sudoh Honke. He said he hoped this would be a good opportunity to have Hankyu handle their products. He said that although it is not familiar in the Kansai region, Takimoto and Shimada Sake Shop in Osaka carry it. He said that since the Corona disaster, they have not been sold in Kansai for the most part. The president's English pronunciation was very good, as he is mainly an exporter 🤣 He even dared to say "empty" again in English. The oldest existing brewery. The first brewery to produce sake. The first brewery to produce sparkling sake. The image of the first brewery to produce sparkling sake. We tasted the following Kasumiyama Junmai Daiginjo Unfiltered Namaizu Kasumiyama Junmai Daiginjo Unfiltered Namaizu Yukinomai Sparkling Unfiltered Nama-zake Gonohonomoto Junmai Daiginjo Namaisho Namaisho Gonohomyo Junmai Daiginjo Kurokin Unfiltered Nama-zake Gonohonomoto Junmai Daiginjo Unfiltered Nama-zake Gonohonomoto Junmai Daiginjyo Hyokyuu-aged Autumn Yamatohana Junmai Daiginjo Unfiltered Nama-zake The Kurogane tasted like chocolate and had a sense of maturity, but the brewer said it had not been aged. The taste of the kamishimo is different from that of other kamishimo, but this seems to be the original kamishimo. Sparkling tastes like pear. Not enough words 🤣.

Tasty but not sweet. Good sharpness. Is this a model of junmai sake? It will become more mature as time goes by. Warmed up, it has a great flavor! It tastes like honey.

I bought it as a souvenir when I went to Yamanashi. I bought a bottle of sake from the "Kai no Jishu no Mimamabe" set I bought it as a souvenir when I went to Yamanashi. It's almost gorgeous and fruity! It tastes better chilled!

A series of pioneering local dry junmai sake 💪. First bottle 🍶. The one from my hometown. High aroma, dry with a lot of acidity. The blue label junmai ginjo was fruity, but this one is something else. But this one is just as good. 300ml, about 550 yen (?) without tax
