profile iconA little adventurous, delicious! I liked it~! The type I wouldn't choose because of the austere name.

profile iconIt is easy to drink because it is nigori, yet still has a gorgeous and refreshing taste. I think even people who don't like nigori can drink it. I hope they will continue to do their best after the earthquake..!

profile icon8.5 points (wife: 7 points) Rice : Yamadanishiki (pesticide-free) produced in Itoshima, Fukuoka Rice polishing ratio : 65 Alcohol content : 14 Sake Degree : Undisclosed Acidity : Not disclosed Store where available Senmaru (Sapporo, Minami-ku) Silent when opened No gas feeling Sweet and sour top taste like white wine The same fruity aroma as the first sip, the full-bodied sweetness and soft rice flavor spread out with an assertive white wine-like acidity, and the wine finishes quickly with a slight bitterness and a touch of alcohol. It is more like a white wine than a sake, with an impressive sweet and sour taste. It goes well with meals and is also delicious on its own. It went well with Obihiro-style pork rice bowl (made with Kuhara-Honke's Hokkaido sauce) and tofu soup. My cherry bonsai is almost all gone and the leaves are turning into cherry blossoms.

profile iconIntense and delicious. A fine sake with a very good rating. A little sweetness.
Japanese>English
profile iconSweetness: 2 Umami: 3 Astringency: 2 Acidity: 4 Bitterness: 3 Fullness, body: 4 Flavor: Green plum Slightly yellow in color, plum aroma with a hint of sourness from the top-tasting aroma (also derived from the sake yeast?). The aroma is a little yellowish, with a hint of sourness from the top-tasting aroma. From the attack, the taste is sweet and sour and fresh, reminiscent of plum wine. After that, the lingering sourness that slowly spreads over the bottom is impressive and new to me ๐Ÿ˜ณ. From the aroma, I thought, "Hmm? What is this? and it took me a while to write it down...lol It is good on its own or as a food wine, and I am looking forward to the changes in flavor after the second day! On the second day, there is no major change in aroma or taste, but the sweetness seems to come forward a bit. Still, the unique sourness is addictive ๐Ÿ˜„.

profile iconI haven't had a drink in a long time due to an upset stomach. I drank doburoku for the first time in my life, so there was no comparison. It has a strong rice flavor and is easy to drink like amazake with sweetness and sourness. I drank half a cup, but it tasted like something I could sip and savor. The taste and texture of crushed rice is addictive.

profile iconPurchased at a liquor store near Koga Station I asked what kind of sake goes well with sashimi and this is what was recommended Made with Koshihikari rice The label is stylish! (Just after opening the bottle) Drink it cold Very slight yellow color Contains many very fine bubbles Refreshing aroma with a light image. Strong juiciness and acidity in the mouth. A firm richness spreads in the mouth. Medium lingering finish Weak sweetness remains in the aftertaste. When warmed, the sharpness of the flavor increases, and it is better served cold. Goes well with salted octopus and Matsumae pickles. Very tasty. Warm to lukewarm Smells like alcohol. The sweetness is more pronounced than when served cold. A strong dryness soon appears. The aftertaste is very refreshing. Heat sake to hot. Smell of alcohol is weaker than when lukewarm. Not so good as it tastes very light. When cooled, it tastes dry and has little sweetness. When heated, it does not go well with snacks that go well with cold sake.

profile iconAt a store that sells naturally grown food, I found a slightly unusual colored sake and picked it up. The bottle was opened with caution, but I opened it without incident๐Ÿ˜…. It was quite sweet and sour, low in alcohol and easy to drink. I think it's more like plum wine or apricot wine than sake.

profile iconDaigo no Shizuku" is a sake made by reproducing the "Bodaimoto" brewing method that originated at Bodai-san Shorakuji Temple in Nara and was developed during the Kamakura (1185-1333) and Muromachi (1333-1568) periods. It is brewed using water called "Soyashi," which naturally contains natural lactic acid from the air and wild yeast (or "kurazakutei yeast" in sake breweries). This is the very prototype of "Namaoto," or the starting point of sake brewing. To ensure that the sake is tasted as it is made, we do not split water or filter it at all, and each batch is bottled separately. Since sake is brewed throughout the year, the alcohol content, sweetness, acidity, and other flavors vary with each season and each batch.

profile iconFrom Terada Honke, a low-polishing, Bodaihashi yeast brewed sake. The aroma is sweet and sour with a hint of yogurt. The juiciness that does not disappoint swells up with a crisp feeling, and a deep cacao-like flavor wafts softly through the air. A slight bitterness and the delicious taste of rice rise in the aftertaste. This is also a good sake.
