profile iconAkita Sake Komachi, Akita's representative sake rice, is used with multi-acid yeast No. 77 to give it a refreshingly acidic flavor." The sake is said to be "refreshing and tasty with a touch of acidity". It was easy to drink, for better or worse.

profile iconAs soon as you put it in your mouth, the aroma opens up and spreads in the mouth along with the acidity. It is fruity, but the umami of the rice is also quickly conveyed and disappears in a dry way. It was a new taste for me. It is delicious.

profile iconWhite dove ๐Ÿฆ. I'm Manachie, a man who looks good in Love & Peace: โค๏ธ This one opened in plenty of time last year so I was careless and spilled a little ๐Ÿคฃ It's a healthy drink ๐Ÿคฃ. The aroma is green apple? A little pear? The mouthfeel is soft and smooth. It has a sweet and sour taste like green apple with a strong bitter taste! Delicious ๐Ÿ˜‹It is blurred by the strong gasiness and bitterness, but the umami is also felt well in the back. This is meat! It's perfect with stir-fried pork with garlic. โ€ผ๏ธ I've left it for a day because the bitterness is quite strong and it's not like pigeon pea. The second day, the bitterness was gone, and the overall taste was good ๐Ÿคฃ. It goes well with crispy chicken steaks: โค๏ธ Of course, this one has garlic too ๐Ÿง„. The third and fourth images are of Sapporo ๐Ÿบ, which is only available in Niigata. It's so refreshing and delicious. โค๏ธ I want to live in Niigata just for this ๐Ÿคฃ.

profile iconIt is a daiginjo-shu brewed with yeast extracted from apple peels, and this series was once an Imperial New Year's sake. There are three types of Daiginjo-shu, from the most expensive to the least expensive: black box, red box, and white box (the black and red boxes are too expensive for me to afford). The cool and refreshing aroma of the white box was very refreshing and easy to drink, with the umami of the rice intertwined with the gentle acidity produced by the apple yeast! The black and red boxes must be even better.

profile iconI found this fantastic ๐Ÿ˜„ at a sake store in Tsu Station, Mie Prefecture, where I was on a business trip. I heard that they have been in business with the company for a long time, so they were handling it. I've wanted to drink it for a long time ๐Ÿถ. Light on the palate, but with a sudden volume ๐Ÿ˜ณ. It's a bit of a surprise ๐Ÿ˜„. It's a little dry, so it's best with snacks that don't have a strong flavor ๐Ÿ˜„.
