Bon is a must drink if you like sake. It is a great sake.

I went to the liquor store on a whim again. I think I buy more sake than I buy clothes.
I had another encounter at “Kagataya,” a liquor store that sells major brands.

Looking at the kanji, I thought it was Korean? China? I remember seeing something like this written on a shield in an ancient war. However, I often see empty bottles on display in front of bars, but I finally found one with contents.

Lucky me!

What a bewitching contrast of pink and blue. I can’t imagine the taste at all.

Every time I think about it, doesn’t this “freshly squeezed” have a milkiness to it? The brewery’s hidden sake is so secretive.

What is “lightly nigori”?

Usu-nigori” refers to new sake that has been pressed and bottled without any filtration. The sake is then filtered using a coarse colander, rather than the sake bag used to make sake. After the sake has been pressed, it still has a white cloudy residue, which is why it is called usunigori.
This is why it is called “usunigori.” This type of sake is often produced during the winter months when new sake is made.
However, some breweries release it in June, or in July, calling it “origarami”. Usu-nigori” means “new sake”, which literally means “just made” sake.

This is why it is more noticeable than aged sake, because it is a bit more acidic and the yeast is still alive.

We believe that the freshness and youthfulness unique to this new sake is something that all sake lovers should try.

There’s too much information… I looked it up on the web.
It says that the rice polishing rate is “a blend of 35% and 50% Junmai Daiginjo (the label says 50% polishing rate),” so if you add it up and divide by two, it’s 45.5%.
I expect it to be fresh because it is undiluted sake.

The cap is an old cap.

The aroma is not strong, with a hint of dairy products.

Taste evaluation

Let’s try it with high expectations.

Gulp!

As expected, it is rich and umakuchi, with a thick and delicious taste!
Every Bon is delicious!
Comment: B
I am looking forward to Jun Dai Nigori.
The aroma is fragrant, gorgeous, and sweet, just like Jun Dai. The taste is quite sweet, but it has just the right amount of bitterness to finish it off, so you can drink it without getting tired of it. It’s delicious, just like an authentic Jun Dai!

Easy to drink. The mouthfeel is fruity and then spicy with a delicious flavor. The end of the drink is refreshing and crisp. I guess you could call it “light and dry”. The balance is very good, although I had the same sensation with the sake I drank before.
It is a dangerous series that can be drunk smoothly. It’s certainly a total delight. This is definitely a winner except for chilled. It’s good, just the way I like it. It has a mellow taste, and to my tongue, it’s like Kubota Senju, but the taste is clear and sour, followed by alcohol, and then it disappears down your throat as if nothing happened. This is the taste. This is not to say that it has won all sorts of titles.

Make a snack pizza

I’ve been watching videos of restaurants in New York on Youtube, thinking that sake goes well with other foods besides Japanese food, and I thought that I could make pizza myself. I gave it a try.

It didn’t turn out round… I’ll try again. The taste is not bad thanks to the cheese. Sanbon goes well with such ingredients, and I got drunk.
It was good day.
