Light fizzy sound when opened. Sake that tastes better with time, laid down for 3 years. Slightly brown in color due to Maillard reaction. Delicious sweetness like Shaoxing wine.

First sake from Kagoshima. A dull fizzing sound when the bottle is opened. Slightly candy-colored. After opening the bottle, the impression at room temperature was fruity, but with a strong bitterness and a hard taste. When cooled in the refrigerator, the bitterness receded and it was easy to drink. A few days after opening the bottle, the sweetness increased and it became mellow and fruity. I prefer to drink it after some time ✨.

It has been about a year. It is fruity and easy to drink, though dry drinkers may not like it because it is too sweet.

The palate is sweet and rich. The aftertaste is bitter and dry. I felt the sweetness was too much at freezer temperature, so I chilled it in the freezer to increase the freshness and make it less bitter. The price is reasonable at around 1,500 yen for a 4-pack.

This is also part of the community development project. As a junmai ginjo, it was slightly clearer than the junmai sake from the other day. This sake gives the impression of having been laid down for some time and is quite rich.
