全国の日本酒を制覇したいな〜。それが、衰退してる蔵元・日本酒を救うことにつながるかも、と思っています。 こんな美味しいお酒が飲める日本って素晴らしいと思います。フランスで日本酒を飲もうとすると関税もあって(一升瓶で)3万円ですって。 そう考えると1500円程度で十分美味しいものが手に入るんだから、しっかり(飲み過ぎず)飲んで応援しないとね。

takan
. Kawatsuru Sanuki Kuraudeiri: ‼️ It has a gentle sweet taste like sweet and sour yogurt. It is easy to drink, so you can easily drink it as an aperitif. It is good with meat dishes and can be served on the rocks. I'll have kimchi as a side dish for now.

Akabu純米吟醸 生酒
40
takan
. Junmai Ginjo Nama Sake from Akabu at ‼️ I drank it for the first time in a while. It's really fruity, sweet and sour, and the sizzling, slightly fizzy, subtle acidity soaks in on the tongue until the end. I could drink as many glasses as I want. I thought about having a different drink since it was a little chilly, but it was Sunday and it was an online seminar, so I was kind of tired, so I refreshed myself with this one.

. Hoshi-izumi, I drank it for the first time. It is unfiltered raw sake. Super, super fruity! It's beyond fruity, like an apple or a pear. I fell in love with this sake when I drank it at a corner bar in the summer and bought it. I chose this sake because I wanted to drink something tasty. Charcoal grilled chicken

Eikunしぼりたて生原酒
40
takan
. Eikun's Shiboritate Nama-nihonshu! It's this year's new sake! It has a clean yet robust aftertaste that is delicious and typical of sake. It is made with rice from Kyoto Prefecture and water from Kyoto, so the local flavor will sink deeply into your body. The price is also quite inexpensive, around 1,300 yen, and you can easily drink it. Since it is still Monday, I will keep it light.

Shinkame純米酒
38
takan
. Junmai sake from Kamikame at [Mimashiya], a long-established restaurant in Kanda. I was in Tokyo on a business trip this weekend and happened to be staying in Kanda, so I went to Misumiya without a reservation and was lucky enough to get in. I had a bottle of Shinkame, which I had never had before. It was quite dry and had a deep flavor like an old sake. It went well with their specialty, chopped round loach.

ZakuFLINT

takan
. Zak's FLINT! Flint, it seems, is flint. As per the instructions in the leaf's description, I'm enjoying the aroma by chilling it a bit and pouring it into a large sake glass. It has a full flavor and a clean aftertaste, a perfect balance, and I enjoy it for a relaxing Sunday lunch.

Kazenomori657秋津穂
37
takan
. A bit of a hiccup, Kaze no Mori 657 Akitsuho. The shwashy petiteness is the same as usual, and the slightly sweet and sour feeling is still there. It's a gentle taste! It can be guzzled with the taste of autumn in this cooler season.

Tenryo裏天領
34
takan
. Uratenryo, a very spirited sake! I bought this when I was in Gifu. It is junmai ginjo nama sake. It has a very punchy taste with a strong aftertaste, so I think it's fine to have this sake as the main course and a lighter side dish. The alcohol content is 17%, so even though I drank it lightly, it was still a bit strong, so I drank it slowly while tipping it over ice in a rocks glass. It was a little hot today, so it was nice.

Daishinshu手の内
40
takan
. It's a delicious mouthful of petite, squashy goodness. It is really delicious! This is one I bought during my summer vacation at a brewery in Shinshu. The name "Teuchi" seems to be given with the intention of pouring everything one has into it, and that is exactly what it does! It tastes just like "Teuchi". I made it for dinner today with stir-fried pork and kimchi for my family!

takan
. GOZENSHU I drank 9(NINE) for the first time. It is a slightly dry sake with a strong acidity. It has a complex flavor, and every time I drink it, the flavor changes a little bit, making it an enjoyable sake! I enjoy it on the rocks. Second day The acidity has settled down a bit, and the umami has become more intense and rich.

大嶺夏のおとずれ

takan
. 3 grains of Oumine, the first of the summer! Daimine is one of my personal favorite sakes, one of the great sakes that is refreshing, yet really flavorful and has a strong aftertaste. Its summer series tastes great even at this time of year when fall is almost upon us. It was a late Monday at work, but I was healed. The sauce was Toyama's dried firefly squid! My guess!

Masumi突釃
38
takan
. I bought a limited edition sake brewery when I was in Nagano on my summer vacation trip. Masumi's Thrust ‼️ It has a well-balanced taste in the mouth with firm sweetness and a refreshing pear-like fruity flavor in a slightly effervescent schwashiness! It tastes just as good cold or at room temperature, so you can drink it all the time. Please try it!

Mutsuhassenオレンジラベルひやおろし

takan
. Brought to a drinking party with friends, Mutsu Hachisen Hiyoroshi. It was very fruity, yet refreshing, with a firm aftertaste, and I drank it in a gulp. I drank a bottle in no time. As expected of Mutsu Hachisen!

Hanatomoeスプラッシュ
37
takan
. Hanatomoe Yamahai Splash! This sake is juicy, a little sour, and shwashy, so enjoy the squeaky reaction from the back of your tongue. It took me about 10 minutes to open the bottle, repeatedly opening and closing it. I would like to enjoy it slowly during this still lingering summer heat at the end of summer. P.S. It was a sake worthy of Hanshin's victory!

初緑原酒生酒無濾過

takan
. First Green Unfiltered Nama Sake! I drank it for the first time. It is very tasty and has a very gentle taste! It has been a while since I have had such a gentle tasting sake. It is so easy to drink that I will limit myself to 2 gou today. I want to buy it again. I served it with smoked cheese I bought in Gifu. Okuhida Sake Brewery https://www.okuhida-sake.jp/

TakachiyoAI-IPPON 59 Takachiyo

takan
AI-IPPON 59 Takachiyo AI-IPPON 59 Takachiyo Takachiyo is delicious no matter which one you drink. This is the first time I have had this series. It is umami, but a little tangy, with a lingering aftertaste and a deep flavor all the way through. With a pork cutlet sandwich that I brought home from the take-out menu at an izakaya! (^^)

日野屋ひまほまれ
43
takan
. Hinoya Hida Hidahomare 45% Shizuku Shibori Hinoya after a long time. I went to Hida Takayama. I stocked up at a liquor store in the old town there. It has the punchiness of the nama-shu as it is, but also the mellowness of the once-hot sake. The mellow aroma coming through the nose is also enjoyable, making it an enjoyable sake many times over. It soaks into my tired body after a series of meetings from morning to night.

Mijoshi三女子
31
takan
. Miyoshi Sake Brewery's Sanjo at ‼️ A gem that I ordered. The three girls are all over the place in my mouth. Is it the girl who flutters in your mouth, the fruity girl, or the girl who attacks you with a lingering taste? The label seems to have been drawn by Keiko Gogetsujo, a popular illustrator from Yamaguchi, and the three girls, personifying umami, dry, and sweet, look like they are having fun, which makes me feel excited when I drink it! The label is preserved! I have been a fan since I drank it at Fuguya last year and finally found it after a lot of searching. Ippo Noito Somen is my favorite.

Postscript. I kept a bottle in small portions and when I drank it after 3 days, it became milder and I enjoyed it in a different way.

白嶺KYOTO IWAI

takan
. Hakurei Shuzo: Freshly squeezed new sake! Very refreshing and crisp, with a soft and gorgeous aftertaste that lingers on afterwards. I drank it with gusto. I want to buy it again. I bought some nozawana in Nagano for the occasion.

横笛鶯 囀り
36
takan
. Yokobue Yubing Tsubiri Junmai Ginjyo Nama-genshu! I couldn't read the kanji, but it is said to be the chirping of a Japanese bush warbler. My wife could read this kanji and I thought she was a genius. 💦. More than that, I was surprised at how good the sake tasted. ‼️ It tastes so good. The moment you put it in your mouth, it is fruity like a grape! It's a very refreshing sake. The umami flavor lingers in the mouth afterwards, leaving a lingering, shwashy feeling in the back of the mouth. I almost exclaimed, "What a well-balanced umakuchi sake!" I almost exclaimed. Please try it if you have a chance.
