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 (3435) - Lynchburg, 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.

KyotoLefty (5894) - Kyoto, JAPAN - APR 24, 2010
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.

I have about zero experience with sake, but I really liked this. Clear purple pour is attractive. Nose is great marshmellow and a lavendar blossom rose note. Surprisingly no alc heat. Id drink this all day. Thanks maniac

Kinz (3188) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - SEP 12, 2009
Purple? Strong, almost rough rice aroma. Some rubbing alcohol as well. Not pleasant. Initial, very short lived shock of sour, then suddenly goes into a much better flavor of rice. Some fruitiness as well, almost like apricot. Rather enjoyable to me. Much better than the aroma.

Tried a sample of this at the Aleksey Spirits tasting in Nashville. Got some wood/smoke and malt in the aroma and flavor.
