Give yourself an amber sake.
The day will come when I will retire from the company I worked for for many years and become independent.
The faces of the boss who raised me from scratch, the colleague who didn't want to lose, and the junior who couldn't leave it came to me one after another.
From now on, I have to decide for myself what to do.
I can't blame anyone. If you are asked if there is any regret on the road you did not choose, you cannot say "no". Anxiety is great as much as it has been protected.
But I want to expect more from myself.
I bought old sake as if to encourage myself.
A rare old sake that has been aged for over 10 years.
It seemed like the sake I needed now, which set a break in the past and took a step forward for many years.
The moment I arrive at my house and open the box, I am excited.
The serial number is engraved on the luxurious bottle reminiscent of a special gift.
If you didn't buy it yourself, you wouldn't have noticed that it was sake that looked so fashionable that you would want to decorate it as it is.
Not only fashionable things, but also unexpected developments and unusual things are fun and happy.
Prepare a glass immediately.
Expectations are high for the sound of pouring, the amber color that sways in the glass, and the sweet scent that spreads from the glass.
I drank "1995 Aoi Tsuru".
This premium old sake is made in a land with a large temperature difference, which has been aged for over 20 years.
I am surprised at the mellow but spicy flavor in my mouth.
While drinking Aoi Tsuru, I think it may not be necessary to make a break in the past.
While holding myself up until now, I will take another step forward. Take a deeper step lighter than ever before.
A gift that stretches a little to yourself.
I realized that I was looking forward to my tomorrow while drinking.

for WINE LOVERS
The charm of vintage sake recommended for wine lovers
If the skeleton of the taste of wine is sourness, sweetness, and tannins, the skeleton of the taste of vintage sake is sweetness, umami, and length of finish.
Most wines are often drunk in a slightly cold state of about 8 ° C to 14 ° C, but first try vintage sake at room temperature.
The sweetness of aging caramel and dried fruits, the swelling umami of rice, and the length of the lingering sound of koto. The taste of rice, yeast, and years will add a touch of color to the table that is different from wine.
If you put it in your mouth with an appetizer such as prosciutto, it will smooth your tongue, and if you take it after a meal, it will produce a dessert-like sweetness and satisfaction.
Of course, as sake during meals. Please try it with dishes that allow you to fully enjoy the taste of meat such as roast beef.
The sweet and mellow aroma and the solid taste even in a small amount go well with dishes that are generally considered to be compatible with wine, such as cheese and dried fruits, and it is a new healing time for wine lovers. Promises me.
