Typical soft o sake nose. Very sweet and fragrant in the mouth. Rice, honey, some orchard fruits (apples,pears etc). Decent length and alcohol is reasonably well hidden. Solid stuff.

Pronounced blueberry muffin nose. Clear with only the slightest yellowish hue. Quite sweet flavor of blueberry initially, finishes with honey dew. Alcohol is very noticeable, but that is to be expected and it isn’t excessive for what it is. Best sake I’ve had to date.

Sparky (2133) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - DEC 28, 2008
Bottle courtesy of solan. Pours a very light goldish color. Nose is rosewater, fruit and spice. Taste is dates, plums, citrus and alcohol. Very smooth. Thanks Alan!

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - SEP 18, 2008
Poured a crystal clear and slight yellow. The aroma was fruity and nice. Notes of pears, honey and anise. Flavors of honey and pear with lighter notes of vanilla and rice. Great warmth with a small alcohol bitter bite on the finish. Silky smooth medium bodied that drys and seems to fold away. Man I love Sake.

BlackDonald (1126) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 13, 2008
This has a nice nose as well, rich citrus fruits, and some fresh orchids. Almost picking up some ripe red fruits on the palate, as well as a little bit of spice. This is definitely more elegant than others I have tried. Great acidity, and extremely smooth mouthfeel. Very well done!

dchmela (2565) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAR 31, 2008
Pours clear with just a hint of gold. Sweet flower, berrys, and some herb I cannot pinpoint. Really nice. Taste is smooth and creamy, slight hint of fruit sweetness maybe a little vanilla. Lots of flavor, very subtle and elegant. Very good.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - FEB 13, 2008
Label says 16% ABV. Pours a crystal clear yellowish tint that could pass for a very light Sauvignon Blanc. A swirl of the still body reveals syrupy legs that droop slowly down the glass. The aroma is very creamy and sweet, with notes of rice pudding, koji, and lightly fumy limoncello. There is also a strong floral presence that lends a very calming effect. The incredibly smooth, silky body distributes creamy lemon chiffon flavors evenly across the tongue. Vanilla makes its presence known, and fits perfectly into the fold. Finishes short and sweet. This is an excellent sake. Very enjoyable.

thedm (4889) - Fort Wayne, USA - FEB 1, 2008
This pretty blue bottled sake from a bottle shop poured a small sized head of frothy medium sized clear colored bubbles that were quickly diminishing and left behind a clear yet yellow hued body. The smooth aroma had a slight licorice note. The semi-thick mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish with a mild alcohol burn. The flavor contained notes of alcohol and licorice. Delicious and one I would certainly buy again.

IrishBoy (3754) - Bakersfield, California, USA - SEP 23, 2007
Bottle from mgumby10; Thanks bunches for the sakes! Nose of plums, flowers, and gin; like a fruity gin drink; translucent pale yellow-gold; flavor of light alcohol, with plum and some starchiness. Excellent sake!
