NabeshimaBlossom Moon純米吟醸
117
stst
Nabeshima" is one of the most exciting spring sake we have acquired. Akagisan" is the last boss of spring sake, so we opened this bottle as a prelude to that. When we opened the bottle and poured it, the aroma was of muscat and green apples. The mouthfeel is smooth and silky. It has a pure sweetness that comes out from the minerality. However, the sweetness is not all-encompassing, but the full-bodied rice flavor and the astringent flow of astringency that brings the sweetness and umami together is a beautiful taste ✨. The aroma is bright with a bit of gas, and the fragrance is gorgeous, like a flower garden. It is comfortable to drink, and the sake cup goes down unintentionally! Just as brilliant and delicious as the label 🤤. I'm going to enjoy it while thinking that I need to clean the flower petals on the balcony...!

Purchased at Yodobashi, an electronics and liquor store! The production date was the same as my birthday, which was the deciding factor: ✌️ When you open the bottle and pour it, the aroma is crisp and citrusy like tangerine. The mouthfeel is light, dry and astringent. The aroma is a little bit dry and astringent, but it has a gorgeous citrusy aroma with a hint of acidity. In between, there is a gentle sweetness from the rice. The taste is light and calm from start to finish, making it a great wine to reset or synchronize during a meal! I had it with tuna and it washed out the fat of the fat in the tuna nicely and I enjoyed it without any habits ✨. Golden Work is over and I gave my Mother's Day gift a little early 😌. I'm going to go back to my parents' house for a good night's sleep...!

Good morning & thank you, Manachy 🌞. I have read your review 👍. I'm sure you'll find it at FamilyMart and other places, but it's also a good cosmetic and a versatile type of accompaniment 🤤.

Tsukinowa花見酒特別純米

The cherry blossoms in the neighborhood have started to fall, so I decided to digest some spring sake. This time, I will be drinking "Tsuki no Rin", a souvenir from Iwate 🌸. When I opened the bottle and poured it, it had a crisp aroma with a hint of apple. The mouthfeel is clean and dry, with a slight sweetness. At the same time, it has a gentle and mild sweetness. The balance of sweet and spicy sandwiches is just right, and the taste is like a candy and a whip. The combination of a clear, sharp quality and a hint of sweetness makes it taste like a peach! The way it fades away in the back of the mouth is also similar to the Akagisan, which is really my favorite ✨. This is the last of the "Tsuki no Rin" series I bought in Iwate. This is the last of the "Tsuki no Wa" series I bought in Iwate. They were all interesting and delicious 😌.

Juyondai純米吟醸生酒中取り無濾過

A friend of mine came to visit me, so I decided to open a bottle of "Jyushiyo" which I got for the first time in my life... Fortunately, it looks like I can get it again! Fortunately, it looks like I'll be able to get it again, so I drank it during the day without hesitation👍. When I opened the bottle and poured it, it had a floral aroma. It is so mellow and pleasant that you can smell it even when you are far away from the bottle, so much so that you want to put it as an air freshener 👐. The mouthfeel is smooth, beautiful, and elegant, as if it were a medium-bodied wine. The balance of sweet, sour, and astringent tastes is exquisite, and the taste is both smooth and juicy like raisin butter! The freshness of the unfiltered finish gives the wine a fruity quality that, combined with the sweet and astringent aftertaste, gives it a grape-like quality! The excitement of opening the bottle makes it a taste or two more special than when drinking it in a restaurant ✨. I will enjoy the taste changes from tomorrow onwards 😋.

Good evening, Jay & Nobby! It was my goal to drink with you when I got it, so I was extremely happy 🤤. Maybe it's because it's not available, but the feeling of opening it is unique ✨.

Akagiyama is a mountain of opportunity. We opened the second bottle of the Akagisan Corps that arrived the other day! The punchy freshness of the earlier Etsukaijin is good, but Akagisan's smooth, clear, bright, dry, crisp, and smooth taste is just as exceptional as its freshness and smoothness.

Etsukaijin" was on my mind, but I had been putting it off because there were many other brands I wanted to try. The first bottle was the only one of the several types of sake available, and it was a draft type 👍. When you open the bottle and pour it, you can smell the sweet aroma of chestnuts. The mouthfeel is moist and round. It is fresh, yet creamy and smooth, which made me smile. Overall, it is crisp and refreshing. It is like a cream soda with a moderate sweetness. The unique savory and sweet flavor is like fermented rice malt. It is also an addictive flavor! The high alcohol content gives the beer a punch and makes it very satisfying to drink. The overall clean and elegant atmosphere makes it a delicious and talented brew ✨. It's deep, diverse, addictive and delicious...! I have opened another new door 🤤.

The Maikaze series we look forward to every year has arrived again this year with the Akagiyama Army✨! We opened a bottle of the normal Akagiyama as soon as it arrived! It has a cool and refreshing feeling that is perfect on a hot day like today, with a clean and sharp taste like sansui. The rice flavor is light, but still comes across on the tongue. It is a delicious wine that can be enjoyed with or without food, no matter how many times you drink it! It is a supreme drink to enjoy after taking a bath in the coming season.

AIR was purchased at the right time. I wanted to keep it a little longer, but the Maikaze series will arrive from Gunma, so I'm going to open the bottle! When opened and poured, it has a sweet, refreshing, and rummy aroma. The palate is crisp, with a refreshing sweet and sour taste, and a gassy flavor that is reminiscent of ramune or cider. And just like the name "AIR," it is refreshing, and the glass-like clarity and 12% alcohol content make it easy to drink. It's so easy to drink and comfortable to drink that I can't even think of what to say about it...! With this refreshing taste, I think I can get through GW work. 🐦️

Sharaku吉川産山田錦純米吟醸

stst
When I bought it, the owner recommended that I let it sit for almost a month because it was hard... so I let it sit, but I let it sit for almost 6 months. I opened the bottle to clean out the cellar ✨. When I opened the bottle and poured it, the aroma was fresh and lush, like muscat and melon soda. The mouthfeel is fresh, clear, and beautiful. It doesn't have the umami or richness of the regular product, but the balance between the astringent taste and the moderate sweetness from the minerality is of quintessential "Sharaku" quality 👍. The juicy feeling of aroma and sweetness is close to "Kudokutei" and "Bakuren" type! And since it disappears like a flash of brilliance, you can drink it with pleasure due to its elegance. The quality is no less than jun-dai or daigin series. If it comes out again this year, I would like to try the Tojo one this time 😋.

Oroku八○純米原酒生酒無濾過

stst
This is a spring limited edition sake with a cherry blossom pattern. I was surprised that there was a seasonal limited edition, and since it is said to be a rare freshly pressed sake, my expectations are perfect 🌸. When I opened the bottle and poured it, the aroma was sweet, mild and pleasant, like melon or brown sugar. The mouthfeel is fresh and lush, as if it were freshly pressed. It has a softness, but at the same time, it has an exquisite sweet and astringent acidity with a robust flavor and sharpness that is typical of "Oroku"! The flavor is bright with a hint of muscat and green apple. While the strength and structure are still there, it has a more youthful taste and sweetness than the regular product, giving it a truly fresh flavor! And conversely, the youthfulness of the wine makes the 17.5 alcohol content feel robust and drinkable👍. This is a new world that will get me hooked on the "Oroku" series more and more...! I'm going to enjoy the different flavors slowly 😋.

Today we opened a bottle of "Tsuki no Rin", a gift from Iwate! It is the same white malted rice type as the previous "Tsuchida". Since it is a good opportunity, let's compare and enjoy 👍. When opened and poured, it has a soft, slightly sweet aroma reminiscent of custard cream. The mouthfeel is soft and refreshing. The acidity is refreshing and present, like citrus fruits. Although it loses out to Tsuchida in terms of umami, the clear sake quality, light acidity, and sharpness make for a pleasant taste! And it has a crisp & petite aftertaste like a spodori. It is a good taste for sipping in the coming season! And today I went shopping and got my first bottle of "Jyushidai", which I had longed for. The excitement of carefully going to a sake store to get it is on a different level than encountering it at a restaurant...!

Tsuchida12純米生酛
113
stst
It has been a long time since we have had a bottle of Tsuchida. It is easy to store, and it has been laying in the cellar for about a year and a half, but now it's time to open the bottle..! When the bottle is opened and poured, it has a fragrant aroma like oolong tea or soy sauce. The mouthfeel has a solid weight and presence, as is typical of Tsuchida, but it also has a lightness to it, perhaps due to its 12% alcohol content. Thick but light. This contradiction is interesting! The sourness and the savory & sweet flavor of the rice make it taste like a Shaoxing wine ✨. It seems to go well with Chinese food as well, so much so that it seems a shame that I ate some bean-curd soup yesterday. It's not just sweet and crispy, but deep and you can feel Tsuchida's character 😌. It is a versatile type of sake that can be served warm or cold. The acidity and the lightness of the 12% alcohol content make it perfect for the hot weather we are having right now👍.

It is no longer a must-have. I've been saving it for a while since I bought it, but I opened it just as it was getting a little warmer! (I'll spare you my impressions.) It has a light, refreshing, umami dry taste and a clean, crisp throat, making it a great choice for the coming season 😌. In my opinion, it is a 🍺 substitute...!

Obtained in Kushiro city on a trip to East Hokkaido. Even though it is a souvenir and I want to preserve it, it is a quintessential new sake, so it is time to digest it👍. When the bottle is opened, the aroma is light and fresh with a hint of apple. The mouthfeel is light, but the freshness and greenness of new sake is followed by a melon-like sweetness. Then comes the spicy astringent taste that comes after the sweetness. The five tastes are directly felt and vivid. The pure, snowy quality of the sake is just like the Hokkaido sake we drank there ✨. And by coincidence, I had it with aloe yogurt after dinner, and surprisingly, the flavors are in sync with each other, making it a perfect match! This is the last of this season's new sake! I'm looking forward to seeing what great sake I can find next winter 😌.

Ginban剱岳特別本醸造

Harvested at the Hokuriku Fair. I found out later that it is the same brewery as "Ginban" (🧐). When opened and poured, it has a brown sugar-like aroma. It is smooth on the palate, but has a classic flavor that is more like a mellow sake. The flavor is wrapped in a veil of lightness. The presence of each individual component is felt, yet the impression is that it is well put together! The sweetness and spiciness are moderate and nothing to write home about, but you can taste the deep umami of the rice! A cup that gives you a sense of solidity. Enjoy it with Toyama's firefly squid✨.

Today I opened a bottle of "Washinoo", a souvenir from Iwate! I was a bit sad to leave it behind since it was a souvenir, but I decided to digest the freshly squeezed one. I will enjoy it with Shigaraki ware, a Shiga souvenir I bought the other day 🍶. When the bottle is opened and poured, the aroma is like ripe apples and melon. It has a beautiful mouthfeel, but soon after, a rich sweetness spreads throughout the mouth. It has a sweet flavor like a sugar candy. With the roughness of freshly squeezed sake, it is surprisingly good on the rocks as well! It has a similar impression to K Katsuragawa's summer sake (on the rocks). It has a freshness to it, but with just the right amount of lightness and heaviness, which is where I feel the Iwate quality ✨. A duet of local products! Maybe next time I'll try it with Shiga's souvenir sake and Nanbu ironware!

On the Shinkansen, we open another bottle of Nara Sake, Kisenju✨. The palate is sweet and sour and yogurt-like. It is light and pleasantly schwishy. It is easy to drink even in a tipsy state! It is also gorgeous and strawberry-like, so it feels like strawberry yogurt. And the last one is Yamazaki 12 years old from sake. We ended our trip with a glass of Shinkansen Gokukkatai ice cream 😌. There are still many places I want to visit, so I will visit Kansai again if I have a chance...!

Hi Pon-chan, good evening here too! I've never really been to Nara or Shiga, but I enjoyed the local food & sake, and the history ✨. I'm interested in Shiga too, like Omi Hachiman, so I'll visit again 😌.

The last was "Harushika," a Nara sake! The aroma and mouthfeel are clear and simply dry. It has a crisp and dry taste with a hint of sweetness from the rice. It's great during a meal and goes great with the meat tofu to reset the mood ✨. Next, we went to Izakaya Shinkansen!

Since I was also visiting Kyoto, I had a second glass of "Ginshari", a Kyoto sake. The aroma is faintly muscat-like. The mouthfeel is refreshing...but then the mellow sweet, sour, and astringent taste like grapes spread out in a sizzle. The difference between the naming and the taste was a betrayal in a good sense! The slight chilliness of the gas also gives the wine a freshness👍.

After enjoying Fushimi's soft water hot springs in Kyoto, I spent the last part of my trip in Osaka👍. Since it was a special occasion, we had a drink at Kurehaaru, which we hadn't had in a year, and some oden and kushikatsu! The aroma is almost imperceptible. It has a refreshing taste on the palate, but the robust flavor of the rice comes on later. Still, it is lighter than other Osaka sake and has a moderate sweet and spicy taste. It has no habits and goes perfectly with oden ✨.
