Overall 8 (out of 10) According to the description. This sake was created under the theme of "reproducing the forgotten techniques of ancient Nara by modern brewers based on documents from that time. From the aroma before drinking to the taste, the flavor is similar to that of Shaoxing wine. The taste of Shaoxing wine has been removed, and a subtle rice flavor has been added to give it a refined image. A very thick and rich sake. Shaoxing wine is not the kind of liquor that I like. but for some reason, it has a mysterious taste that makes you want to keep sipping it. We drank it together with a sense of history, thinking that this might have been the taste of sake that the Japanese used to enjoy in the past. The aroma I felt was  -Aroma: Like that of Shaoxing sake.  -Aroma: Aroma of Shaoxing wine with a hint of rice. Taste sensation The higher the number, the stronger the taste (5 is the maximum)  -Spiciness: 0 at the beginning → 0 aftertaste  -Sweetness: 5 at the beginning → 5 in the aftertaste  -Sourness: 0 at the beginning → 0 in the aftertaste  -Bitterness: 0 at the beginning → 0 in the aftertaste  -Rice flavor: 0 at the beginning → 1 lingering aftertaste

Overall 10 (out of 10) We visited Nishibori Sake Brewery on 4/29 and purchased this sake! (Today, my husband and I had our second bottle of Nishibori Sake following ILLUMINA.) The aroma and umami of the rice is well blended with a moderate sweetness. It is a sake that suits my taste very well! Not too smooth, not too thick, and a smooth taste. The aroma is very good.  -Aroma: Aroma of fragrant rice  -Aroma: Slight bitterness while maintaining the aroma of rice. Taste sensation The higher the number, the stronger the taste (5 is the maximum)  -Spiciness: 0 at the beginning → 1 in the aftertaste  -Sweetness: 3 at the beginning → 2 in the aftertaste  -Sourness: 0 at the beginning → 0 in the aftertaste  -Bitterness: 0 at the beginning → 1 lingering aftertaste  -Rice flavor: 3 at the beginning → 3 in the aftertaste

Overall 9 (out of 10) I visited Nishibori Sake Brewery on 4/29 and purchased this product! The brewery's unique trial of "LED color light irradiation fermentation LED color light irradiation fermentation This sake is made with the "LED color light irradiation fermentation" method. The sake is continuously irradiated with blue LEDs during the unrefining process, It is said to have a sweet taste. The moment you take a sip, it is very light and smooth. The sweetness is not so strong, but rather the astringency and acidity are suppressed. There is no heavy feeling, and it is easy to drink like water. I feel that this sake is suitable for people like me who have not yet made their debut with sake. The president of Nishibori Brewery is an IT engineer who graduated from Tokyo University. I will continue to support innovative sake brewing like this one! The image of the aroma that I felt  -Aroma: Slight aroma of rice  -Aroma: Slight bitterness in the nose Taste sensation The higher the number, the stronger the taste (5 is the maximum)  -Spiciness: 0 at the beginning → 1 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 → 1 in the aftertaste  -Rice flavor: 1 at the beginning → 1 lingering aftertaste

Hi Jay & Nobby 😃 I recommend Nishibori Sake Brewery: ❗️ You can do quite a variety of tasting, and the interior of the store is quite stylish, especially the whisky brewery which will start selling next year (information that has nothing to do with sake.... 😅)

Enjoying the aroma of mellow rice, a subtle woody aroma that lingers in the nose as soon as you take a sip. It has a hard taste with no sweetness. Delicious bitterness of grain and a hint of rice flavor Sake that can be drunk slowly and enjoy the changes in flavor 🍶.

I like Matsu-no Kotobuki Hitogokochi! The Shizuku label this time was delicious, so I'm going to try Hitogokochi too! Also, everyone at each brewery was very kind and friendly! We became a fan of Tochigi's sake breweries at once!

Overall 10 (out of 10)   Spicy-1 (-5 to 5: minus is fruity)   Light -2 (-5 to 5: minus is rich) Daishinshu is another sake I was curious about in Sake-no-wa's post. Since it was GW, I visited Daishinshu Sake Brewery and purchased it This is a sake from the sake server at the Daishinshu Sake Brewery's store 🍶. The flavor of rice spreads in the mouth, followed by a slight astringency that lingers in the aftertaste. I think it is very well put together!

Overall 9 (out of 10)   Hotness-2 (-5 to 5: minus is fruity)   Lightness-3(-5-5: minus is rich) From the beginning of drinking to the aftertaste, the miscellaneous flavors and umami of the rice are well balanced and persist. The miscellaneous flavors, which decrease as the sake is steeped, are essentially the taste of the rice. This sake made me feel such a thing.

Overall 9 (out of 10)   Spicy 3 (-5 to 5: minus is fruity)   Lightness 4(-5-5: minus is thick) It tastes like only the umami of the rice is extracted to create a clean, clear, transparent taste. It does not leave much of a lingering aftertaste, and it cuts through quickly. The taste is not too thin. Can be drunk every day.

Overall 10 (out of 10)   spicy -4 (-5 to 5: minus is fruity)   Lightness -4 (-5-5: minus is rich) First time drinking Jikin at home. The umami of rice, a hint of sourness & bitterness push together in a chord. Not only sweet but also spicy. It is the rice flavor that lingers as a faint aftertaste after drinking 👍. As one would expect from a sake so famous that it is difficult to obtain 🍶. I can see why everyone at Sake-no-wa highly recommends it! I'm starting to feel the limits of the spiciness and fruity only indicator😅.

Hi Jay & Nobby 😃. Thanks for your message! 😊 I feel the frustration every time I drink that my vocabulary can't keep up with the too-good-to-be-true sake 😆. I'm glad you can relate to the chords! Anyway, it's delicious! I'm Jikin: ❤️

Straight and simple! There are no elaborate effects such as a lingering aftertaste at the beginning of drinking. The alcohol content is slightly low at 14%, which makes it easy to drink.

Overall 10 (out of 10) spicy -2 (-5 to 5: minus is fruity) Lightness -3 (-5 to 5: minus is thick) Immediately after drinking, fruity + just a little bit of miscellaneous taste or astringency Only a fruity aftertaste remains afterwards. Perhaps due to this deliciousness and the slightly low alcohol content of 14 degrees, it is easy to drink more and more! It is very good! After finishing the whole bottle, I took a closer look at the label, It says, "Recommended to store refrigerated for 1 to 2 years. It is recommended to be refrigerated for one to two years.
