Lovely clear chestnut clear brown. Warming nutmeg and Pistachio dry woody nose. Neat creamy sweetness initially, patient dummy of juicy unforced nuttiness before an open and warming clear cut ambitiously boozy finish.

Bottle at Craig’s. Pours cloudy brown. I’m not really a big fan of sake. Thought this has a touch of umeboshi about it. Rice wine.

Copper colour. Medium aroma of peach, green apples and some herbs maybe. One of my problems with sake is that I think the flavour tend to be way too short, onsly lasting for a second or two, but this one has a much more lasting flavour then the other sakes I’ve tried. Flavour is a good balance beetween peach, green apples and some vanilla. A little alcohol stinch in the finish, not too much though. Good palate. Overall the best sake I’ve tried so far, though I’m not that experienced on the subject.

obguthr (4535) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - MAR 2, 2011
Little aroma. Hazy with the color of dried blood. Tangy and astringent, meaty and savory. The red rice gives character to this daiginjo. Enjoyable and unique.

Taster at the brewery. Crazy purple-pink color. Very original nose or caramel, and funk. Sweet toffee taste with a funky, sour edge. Interesting and original, though a bit too sweet.
