Overall 8 (out of 10) I visited Hirase Sake Brewery on 6/15 following yesterday and tasted and purchased this sake! It is a commemorative sake for the 400th anniversary! It is a clear, crisp, dry sake. A little bit of umami of rice woven into the dryness! I got the impression that this kind of taste lasted from the beginning to the end. It is a sake that you can't stop drinking! It was served chilled. The image of the aroma that I felt...  -Aroma: A slight ginjo aroma.  -A hint of ginjo aroma in the nose. Taste sensation The higher the number, the stronger the taste (5 is the maximum)  -Spiciness: 3 at the beginning → 3 in the aftertaste  -Sweetness: 0 at the beginning → 0 in the aftertaste  -Sourness: 0 at the beginning → 0 in the aftertaste  -Bitterness: 0 at the beginning → 0 in the aftertaste  -Astringency: 0 at the beginning → 0 lingering 0  -Rice flavor: 1 at the beginning → 1 lingering aftertaste Mouthfeel I felt】→ 1 Smaller number = light and smooth Bigger number = thicker and richer (5 is the maximum)

Overall 9 (out of 10) I bought this sake at Hida Jizake Kurahonten, a sake shop where the brewer came to talk about his brewing process. This sake is made by bottling new sake immediately after pressing and storing it in a snow cellar at ice temperature. Ice storage increases the umami and sweetness, and the roughness of new sake becomes soft and mild. My impression was that the taste was indeed soft and gentle, with a corner removed, dominated by umami and a moderate sweetness, and accented by a slight astringency at the end. That is the impression I got. I like this lineage 😋. Compared to yesterday's Kudoki-Ue, I gave it a 9 because it lacked depth and the impact of the rice flavor was weaker 😅I would have given it a 10 if I hadn't drunk Kudoki-Ue. It was served chilled. The aroma I felt was  -Aroma: Aroma of a modest ginjo 👍.  -The aroma is a bit astringent. Taste sensation The higher the number, the stronger the taste (5 is the maximum)  -Spiciness: 0 at the beginning → 0 in the aftertaste  -Sweetness: 1 at the beginning → 1 in the aftertaste  -Sourness: 0 at the beginning → 0 in the aftertaste  -Bitterness: 0 at the beginning → 0 lingering 0  -Astringency: 1 at the beginning → 2 in the aftertaste  -Rice flavor: 3 at the beginning → 2 in the aftertaste Mouthfeel I felt】→ 2 Smaller number = light and smooth Bigger number = thicker and richer

Overall 10 (out of 10) Pekho-san got a bottle of "Kudokibe" that he had been curious about at Sake-no-Wa at the Sake Brewery in the Seibu Food Hall B2! According to the explanation on the label, "We want to make something addictive that can carve out a life with sake.

Overall 9 (out of 10) Found this at the "Sake Brewery" in the Seibu Food Hall B2 🤩. I was interested in it after reading Jay & Nobby's post, so I bought it without hesitation even though it was an Omachi. According to the description, "Clear and sharp mouthfeel, mellow aroma and clean acidity. The mild aroma complements a variety of dishes as a food sake, and you can easily drink two or three glasses for a long time. My impression is that the sweetness, moderate astringency, and spiciness are mixed together, and at the end, the astringency is released into the nose as an aroma, while the sweetness follows in parallel. Such was my impression 🍶. It is sweet, but light and not too heavy, so you can drink it while eating, and you can drink it for a long time. It was served chilled.

It is made from 100% "Isehikari" rice, the only two rice plants that survived the typhoon that hit the Ise region in 1989.

Overall 7 (out of 10) Even though it's Monday today, for some reason the sake is still going strong and I'm on my second bottle😅The second bottle is All Tokyo, which I purchased from Tokyo Port Brewery. This sake is brewed with Tokyo-grown rice using the original Tokyo yeast collected from bees in Hibiya Park. It is truly an All Tokyo sake with rice, water, and yeast all made in Tokyo. At the beginning, the taste is completely different from the Edo Kaijo (EDO/Yamada Nishiki) of the same series, which has a banana-like sweetness, but has a hard-edged astringency and a slight spiciness that lingers into the aftertaste.

Overall 10 (out of 10) I give it 10 points with a strong guess by Peckho. According to Imanishi Shuzo's website, they brew sake with the desire to express the history, culture, and climate (water and rice) produced there. You can strongly sense the flavor of the rice. Yet the sweetness is moderately restrained. The lingering taste is similar to that of yesterday's Hourai, with a slight astringency. However, the flavors are completely different and I am always surprised at the depth of sake that can produce so many characteristics with rice and water as the main ingredients. Hourai has a freshness, while today's Mimurosugi has a warmth. I had it chilled. The image of the aroma that I felt  -Aroma: Aroma of rice with umami flavor.  -Aroma: The taste is astringent, but the aroma is still slightly umami.

Overall 9 (out of 10) In honor of the 150th check-in milestone, I tried a sake from Gifu that I had never had before 🍶. I purchased this sake on June 1st at Watanabe Shuzo. This sake is made from Gifu rice called "Hidahomare"!

Hida Takayama is currently holding the Sake Brewery Nonbei Festival! There are many sake breweries and we had a great time walking around, tasting sake and eating gohei-mochi (rice cakes). Of course, we went home after buying a lot of sake, including sake limited editions!

Overall 10 (out of 10) Purchased at Matsuoka Sake Brewery on 5/12 I had it at Matsuoka Shofu-An, a stylish restaurant on the premises of Matsuoka Sake Brewery, and enjoyed it so much that I bought it! When you pour it into a glass, you can smell the delicious aroma of rice👍. The description says it has a "fruity aroma like tropical fruits and a sweet but crisp taste that you will never get tired of drinking. I love the taste of this strain 😋. I emptied it in no time. 😅 I had it chilled. The aroma I got from the bottle was...  -Aroma: Aroma of rice with umami flavor.  -Aroma: The aroma of rice is still there, but it is slightly spicy. Taste sensation The higher the number, the stronger the aroma (5 is the maximum)  -Spiciness: 0 at the beginning → 2 in the aftertaste  -Sweetness: 2 at the beginning → 1 in the aftertaste  -Sourness: 0 at the beginning → 0 in the aftertaste  -Bitterness: 0 at the beginning → 0 lingering 0  -Astringency: 0 at the beginning → 0 lingering 0  -Rice flavor: 4 at the beginning → 3 in the aftertaste Mouthfeel I felt】→ 2 Smaller number = light and smooth Large number = thick and rich (5 is the maximum)

Reservations are required for the sake brewery restaurant! Oyako-don (oyakodon) and dote-ni set menus made with koji, and parfaits and green tea tiramisu made with sake kasu for dessert💕Delicious! There was also a sake drinking contest! The water is hard water used in sake brewing, but miraculously mellow due to the lack of iron!

Overall 6 (out of 10) Purchased on 5/26 at Suzuki Shuzo When poured into a glass, it has a nice aroma of melon, or cemedine, or something like that! The taste is very light and light, with just a hint of astringency, so it doesn't affect the flavor of the food. The alcohol content is a reasonable 17 degrees, so you will get drunk quickly. I served it chilled. The aroma I felt was...  Aroma: Cemedine-like aroma  -Aroma: Slightly alcoholic flavor that passes through the nose. Taste sensation The higher the number, the stronger the taste (5 is the maximum)  -Spiciness: 2 at the beginning → 3 in the aftertaste  -Sweetness: 0 at the beginning → 0 in the aftertaste  -Sourness: 0 at the beginning → 0 in the aftertaste  -Bitterness: 1 at the beginning → 1 lingering aftertaste  -Astringency: 0 at the beginning → 0 lingering 0  -Rice flavor: 2 at the beginning → 1 lingering aftertaste Mouthfeel I felt] → 1 Smaller number = light and smooth Bigger number = thicker and richer (5 is the maximum)

Aromatic and clean tasting sake. Since we were undecided on what to drink, we went with our family staples for now. Deep-fried gizzard, deep-fried tofu, grilled chicken without skewers, and freshly picked salad from the neighborhood! After all, bonito broth goes well with sake, and I think fat is good for dry sake ♡.

Good evening shinsaku3 & Pekho 😃. A bottle of sake that is all about the black 🍶 that will help you shed the fat 🤗 and your standard entrée is the strongest lineup ‼️ bonito dashi goo 👍

Good morning Jay & Nobby😃. Yes, I got the impression that it was more of a sake to be enjoyed as a stand-alone drink, but more as an in-between meal, and when the food is the main course, without feeling like a sake drink 😃. I liked the bonito broth 😋.

Overall 3 (out of 10) Purchased on 5/26 at Seiryu Sake Brewery. They also operate an izakaya (Japanese-style pub) in Tokyo! It was a fairly large sake brewery! The independent alcohol aroma and taste is a bit strong along with the ginjo aroma! I can't describe it well, but it is delicious! I can't describe it well, but compared to the recent tasty sake, it seems to have a somewhat artificial flavor rather than a natural flavor. This is just my impression. I had it chilled. The image of the aroma that I felt  -Aroma: Ginjo aroma.  -Aroma: Strong alcohol taste. Taste sensation The higher the number, the stronger the taste (5 is the maximum)  -Spiciness: 2 at the beginning → 2 in the aftertaste  -Sweetness: 1 at the beginning → 1 in the aftertaste  -Sourness: 0 at the beginning → 0 in the aftertaste  -Bitterness: 1 at the beginning → 1 in the aftertaste  -Astringency: 0 at the beginning → 0 lingering 0  -Rice flavor: 1 at the beginning → 1 lingering aftertaste Mouthfeel I felt】→ 1 Smaller number = light and smooth Bigger number = thicker and richer (5 is the maximum)

I fried Costco mackerel filets with bread crumbs. The fries themselves were delicious, but I thought surely a more handsome sake pairing would be the unbreaded fried nanbanzuke. The rest of the meal was neighborly plenty of salad greens and beef salad🥗👍.

Overall 9 (out of 10) Purchased at a liquor store right next to Kamikame on 5/26. It seems that they don't sell directly to the public. The website says The website says, "We do not add anything, we do not hide anything, we carefully and deliberately brew with craftsmanship, farmers, and time as our allies. Chikara" is one of the "Chikara", "Ju", and "Yama-Ari Tani-Ari" series of tank sake. First of all, it has a nice aroma right after opening the bottle. And the taste of rice is simple and straightforward. There is no extra production, just rice and water! No other taste is created! That's my impression👍 The rice flavor is very close to that of Hakugakuzen! It is similar to Hakudakesen Gokuso, which gave me the impression of "The Rice Sake! I would like to have other series! It was served chilled! I was impressed by the aroma.  -Aroma on the nose: Delicious ginjo aroma 👍  -The aroma is not so good. Taste sensation The higher the number, the stronger the taste (5 is the maximum).  -Spiciness: 0 at the beginning → 0 in the aftertaste  -Sweetness: 0 at the beginning → 0 in the aftertaste  -Sourness: 0 at the beginning → 0 aftertaste  -Bitterness: 1 at the beginning → 1 in the aftertaste  -Astringency: 0 at the beginning → 1 lingering aftertaste  -Rice flavor: 3 at the beginning → 2 in the aftertaste Mouthfeel I felt] → 1 Smaller number = light and smooth Bigger number = thicker and richer (5 is the maximum)

In anticipation of the dry sake, the hors d'oeuvre was yukke (bonito). The garlic and soybean paste made the sake taste more mellow! I thought one-pot dish would be good for the dry sake, so I made a one-pot dish with salad greens and pork that I got from my neighbor💕Yum!
