Today's trio is from a brewery in Hachitari, Nakayo Matsuyama City. When I hear the name of this brewery, I think of nigori sake. However, this time we will have a special junmai. From the moment I drank it, I felt that the flavor was not well balanced. I can feel a little bit of a cloying taste both in the mouth and down the throat. This sake is not a good match for me today, but I would like to try nigori sake next time.

Today's runner-up is a brewery in Dogo-Kitamachi, Chuyo Matsuyama City. I remember drinking a cup of sake from this brand before. You can't read "Nikitatsu" at first sight, and you don't know what it means. But now it is convenient. I look it up on my cell phone while drinking. The land of Dogo, NIKITATSU, Manyo, King Nukata. Words I saw in history classes and textbooks. And the names of Matsuyama's natural monuments. Many titles for many things. The first sip of this sake had a strong acidity, but as you drink it, it becomes less bothersome as your palate adjusts to it. It goes down your throat nicely.

This will be the last Ehime sake drinking contest of the year. The first one is a sake from Nanyo Uwajima. It is moderately sweet, yet easy to drink. The richness and Nanyo character of junmai sake can be felt slightly after drinking. It is an easy sake to pair with food. Sake meter rating +3

I made a mistake with the check-in issue and resent it. My apologies for the like. Today's trio was from a brewery in Miyoshi, Saijo. Last time, the cup sake was a little old, so we had a revenge match. It looks a little golden. The aroma was a little old. The mouthfeel was a bit disappointing, as was the last time I drank a cup of sake. I may have to evaluate it with this brewery's specified name sake.

Today's runner-up is a brewery in Matsumae-cho, Iyo-gun, Chuyo. Masaki-cho is hard to read at first sight. I wonder if Masaki has been spreading a little outside the area since Emifuru was built. Aside from that, this sake is named after the residence of Kato Yoshiaki, the Seven Spears. It looks golden in color, and the negative word expression is old incense, but it is not that unpleasant, and there is an aroma of maturity & some brandy. It has acidity. It is hard to match with meals, but it is good for a leisurely drink.

The spearhead of today's Ehime sake drinking comparison is a famous brewery in Asahi-cho, Imabari City, Toyo. From the label and name, it seemed to be a summer sake. Never mind that, we started with the aroma. There is a ginjo aroma from the upper aroma. The mouthfeel is clean and refreshing, like a sake from Toyo. It is easy to drink, but the fullness in the mouth is weak. Sake meter reading: ±0

After a long time of studying Ehime local sake, my engine is fired up. We change the location a bit and review Ehime local sake at a restaurant with delicious mackerel sashimi. The brewery is famous in Ehime, Imabari. From the first aroma, you can feel the ginjo aroma from the gun. When you put it in your mouth, you can taste the elegant and mellow flavor of rice. It is like a junmai ginjo. A model. The mackerel is delicious and so is the sake. Both of them assert themselves well, so clearly I made a mistake in my choice. Menu Description. Below. Sake Degree +5 Fruity, refreshing and light with a gorgeous aroma and a clean mouthfeel.

Today's trio was from a brewery in Shubu, Saijo City. It tasted different from the nigori sake I have had before. It tastes different from the nigori sake I have ever had. It is easy to drink, but when you finish it, the acidity spreads on your palate. It is easy to drink, but when you finish it, the acidity spreads in your mouth. It is hard to describe, but it is a novel taste. Here is the description Sake degree -4 Alcohol 15.5 Using "Matsuyama Mitsui" rice produced in Saijo City, Ehime Prefecture, this junmai nigori sake is designed to resemble a jewel-like silver world, with a deep, gentle flavor and a dignified freshness that can be enjoyed. The description is written after describing it as I think it is because of bias, but I am enjoying it very much because there are parts that match my sensibilities and parts that do not, and parts that I can teach again.

Good morning, Pon-chan. I'm afraid that my review is not yet good enough. Ehime is a good place to visit if you are tired. Ehime is a good place with many healing points such as hot springs, gourmet food, castles, and sake.

Today's runner-up in the Ehime sake drinking contest is from a brewery in Shizugawa, Toon City. It is smooth and easy to drink from the beginning to the end. After the throat, you can feel the spiciness. It is not unique, but is a perfect accompaniment to a meal. The ginjo aroma is weak. Here is the description Sake degree +6 Alcohol 15 This ginjo-shu is brewed with the finest quality sake rice, Yamadanishiki, and brewed with the utmost care. Its subtle aroma and mild acidity complement food, and while it is dry, you can also enjoy its umami flavor.

We have recently been skipping the Ehime sake drinking comparison. Today's starter is a brewery in Kanada-cho, Shikokuchuo City. Needless to say, it is a well-known brand in Ehime. It is a light and dry sake, but you can feel the umami and richness of the rice in your mouth. A beautiful sake with no cloying taste. Here is the description. Sake degree -5.5 Alcohol 16-17 Although it is a regular sake, Yamada-Nishiki is polished to 50%, the same level as Daiginjo, and carefully crafted to bring out the characteristics of the rice. It has a soft fruity aroma and a soft sweetness that spreads in the mouth.

Business trip to Ehime Saijo City. The squid sashimi and eel will be paired with Ishizuchi, a local sake from Saijo. It is served hot. From the first taste, you can feel the mellowness of sake and the umami of rice. Even when heated up, it sets the table nicely for the meal without any alcohol taste or harshness. I have had many Ehime sake, but Ishizuchi is the one that suits me the best. When I paid the bill, I was told that the sake was Ishizuchi's honjozo. I thought to myself, "So it is a honjozo after all. On the other hand, I was reminded of the fact that I had recently been expressing my impressions of daiginjo and junmai sakes immediately, just as I felt them. I realized once again that the lingering aftertaste, which is the real pleasure of sake, can be felt better with honjozo. Not only immediately after drinking, but even after leaving the restaurant, I felt the lingering aftertaste of sake along with the food. Honjozo is a real treat.

A cup of local sake from Ehime Toyo. Yamato Gokoro (Japanese heart). It may be a little old, but it tastes a little bitter from the first taste to the throat with an old aroma. I drank it, accepting that it was an inexpensive cup of sake and that it could not be helped to a certain extent. The alcohol content is 15-16 degrees.

Business trip to Ehime Toon City. Drank at accommodation in a natural hot spring. All the Ehime sake on the menu were already drunk. The hot sake was from the neighboring city of Kagawa. It was getting cold, so we ordered hot sake. It was mild and easy to drink from the first taste, but you could feel the deliciousness of the rice spreading through your guts as only hot sake can. It is mild and easy to drink from the first taste, but you can feel the delicious rice flavor spreading through all five organs, which is only possible with hot sake.

Purchased this sake from Toyo for drinking at home. The first taste was a little bit bland, but the sake went down the throat nicely and was very refreshing. The aftertaste is sweet, perhaps because of the Ume Nishiki. Alcohol: 14 to 15 degrees Celsius Rice polishing ratio: 65 Sake meter: +6.5 Acidity: 1.1

Today I went on a business trip to Iyo Saijo, Ehime Prefecture. The front desk clerk of the hotel where I stayed recommended this restaurant. Ishizuchi sake is the perfect accompaniment to simmered kijihata grouper and conger eel tempura. This sake is named after the famous water "Uchinuki" in Saijo. The first taste is refreshing with a hint of sourness, and it goes down the throat well and is well-balanced overall. In a word, it is a "beautiful sake. It is an excellent match for white meat fish.

Business trip to Imabari. Visited the restaurant at 5:00 p.m., which was full last time and I could not enter. Even so, there were many customers ahead of me. This is a famous restaurant, after all. Of course, I had Imabari's specialty, teppan yakitori, and paired it with the local sake, Yamatan Masamune. To go with it, we had a bottle of local Imabari sake, Yamatan Masamune, warmed up. The sake is served warm in a special sake warmer. The sake is easy to drink and does not interfere with the meal.
