I drink about 200ml of Japanese sake every night to practice my tongue.
[International kikisake-shi] Japanese sake selection-1 "Furosen"
I tweeted below
【日本酒】不老泉 純米吟醸 新酒生酒（5段階）

Juicy like concentrated juice or cocktails. Taste is complete without any food. If you eat something together, something sweet and sour such as estir-fried shrimp in chili sauce or sweet-and-sour pork. The details will be shown in tomorrow brog.
The first selection is about "Furosen" and I chose "Usunigori namagenshu".
Japanese sake brand "Furosen": 1 minute introduction
Furosen is the Japanese sake made in Uehara shuzou located in Shiga prefecture.
Their production method is Yamahai-shikomi by using yeast living in their Sake brewery instead of adding artificial yeast.
Japanese sake is usually judged "Dry or Sweet", however, Furosen is a tasty sake.
Information about Sake brewery
The Sake brewery is Uehara shuzou located on the west coast of Biwako. Cold wind comes from the Hira mountains and snow piles up up to 30cm in the winter.
There is a well in the brewery so infiltrated soft water gushes free throughout the year.
They do not rely on the machinery, making about 90,000 litters of Japanese sake.

Japanese sake brand: Furosen Yamahai Junmaiginjo Usunigori
This is the Japanese sake I bought this time. (1.8 litters bottle). Because it is namazake, it was placed in cold storage.
The cap is written "Michi ni shitagaeba kichi", meaning "If you go on the right way of life, you will become better".
This comes from Chinese classic "Book of Documents".
We can feel that they make Japanese sake sincerely.
It is a little bit cloudy.
First, drink cold one
Aroma is almost nothing.
It is a strong taste. Just after I sipped, I thought "Is it concentrated juice?"
You can feel the explosion of sweetness, umami, and fresh acidity.
The taste of this Japanese sake is completed. But if you want to drink it with food, something sweet and sour is better such as shrimps in chili sauce or sweet-sour pork.
Drink the warm
I warmed up to 45 degrees.
The first attack is bit weak when you sip compare to cold one.
