Sometimes you just want to drink alone. I’ve always been curious about the Kakinuma Sake Shop, so I decided to wander around and see what I could find. Oh, the lineup was as extensive as ever. From famous brands to ones that I don’t understand due to my lack of study. This time, I chose a brand that I had never heard of before.
- Kamo Kinshu Special Junmai 13
- Both special junmai-shu and junmai-ginjo-shu are described in the same way
- Taste evaluation

Kamo Kinshu Special Junmai 13
Let’s investigate later. First of all, I bought it because I liked the deep green color. The gold letters in green are also excellent. The layout looks like a wine label.
The alcohol content is 13 degrees, which is low for a sake. I wonder if they are conscious of wine. The alcohol content is close to that of wine. Recently, I’ve noticed that there are a lot of sake that have a lower alcohol content to make the aroma more pronounced. Personally, I feel that the stronger the alcohol content, the more the taste of old sake.
Both special junmai-shu and junmai-ginjo-shu are described in the same way.
If rice and rice malt are the raw materials and the milling ratio is 60% or less, then it can be labeled as either “special junmai-shu” or “junmai-ginjo-shu”, but if the concept is to make a statement about the gorgeous ginjo aroma, then it is often labeled as junmai-ginjo-shu, and if not, then as special junmai-shu. Either k depending on the preference of the person who made it.
It has a fruity aroma characteristic of ginjo-shu. The aroma itself is somewhat subdued.
Japan ranking 85th
Hiroshima Prefecture Ranking 2nd
It’s solid, not like low al.
You can’t feel the gasiness.
There is a fruity aroma.
After opening the bottle, the acidity gradually increases.
It becomes complex and delicious.
The label is green, so I had it with soy sauce on a grass cake.
I had it with soy sauce.
Yes, it’s good! Sake cold with parent and child?
I love this combination with salted rice ball, etc.
It is a light and fresh wine with a slight effervescence even though it is fire-aged. It is sweet and tasty, with a citrusy aftertaste. It’s sweet and tasty, with a citrusy aftertaste.
Easy to drink. Maybe it’s because the alcohol content is low, but it’s as easy to drink as water. The aroma is not too strong, and when you put it in your mouth, you can smell the fruity smell of melon coming out of your nose. There is no messy taste in the drink, and when you finish it, you can feel the alcohol as it heats up in your stomach. This is a good one. It may not be enough for dry sake lovers, but for beginners and women. It is perfect as an aperitif. If you drink it in large quantities, the aroma will increase, so it is best to drink it in small sips. It is also well-balanced, so it is good to drink with all kinds of food such as nabe, sashimi, and spicy food. If you are a drunkard, be careful because you can drink it like water.You may end up drinking too much.
They are a regular winner of sake titles
What prefecture is this sake from in Japan? So I did some research. It’s a historical brewery that has been around since the Meiji era in Hiroshima Prefecture. I’m really sorry for my ignorance. I guess they are a regular winner of sake titles. If it’s this good, I’m sure it will win an award. The official website is in English at first, which is a bit annoying, but once you click on it, it’s all in Japanese. Another day, another happy time. I’ve become one more wise person.
