clear sake served in sake cup. You can definitely taste the alcohol in this. But some amazing complex mocha and caramel finish on the back end of this. Really good sake.

Bottle in sake cup. Clear transparent liquid. Kind of chocolately vanilla aroma. Sweet, but a little boozy taste. Quite nice.

Nutty brown rice in the nose with some sweetness, melon and a touch of sulfur. Clear, viscous pale golden body leaves nice legs on the glass. Butter, lychee, nuts and alcohol blend well in the flavour. Assertive and well-blended flavours with some sharpness in the finish. Silky smooth mouthfeel with definite warming. Certainly one of my favourite sakes to date. Bottle purchased at the BCLS at Hellsgate in Jun-08.

The color has a tinge of yellow and is very clean. The texture is light and silky. Aroma is that unmistakable chocolatey melon scent w/ a touch of earthy must. Flavors are dry w/ a very delicate floral candy fruitiness. I distinctly detect alcohol and feel it’s warming on the finish. Overall: a dry style w/ a complex, mild fruitiness that gives way to a long alcoholic finish that leaves me wanting another sip. I enjoy dry vodka martinis and this satisfys my palate in a similar yet more mild fassion.

Oakes (15651) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 26, 2005
Faintest hint of green. Nutty aroma of toasted coconut, butter tarts, marshmallows with background alcohol and wood. Similarly nutty palate with strong wild rice character. Mouthfeel in the middle is slightly wet. The finish, however, is bone-dry and laden with alcohol and wood. Pretty cool jizake, good to see we’re finally getting some respectable examples in BC.
