Bottle. A- Slightly sweet, soft green apples, alcohol. A- White color, clear liquid, no head. T- Melons, green apple, dry, crisp, alcohol, slightly sweet. P- Light body, thin texture, average carbonation, sharp finish, O- The best sake I’ve had but really doesn’t taste much different from any other. A little drier and less alcohol burn but certainly not worth the $100/bottle price.

Sake flight sampled at Sakagura with Linh and Zahra. Pours a clear, still body. Doesn’t really deviate too far from the standard sake in my mind; notes of grassy fresh melon, rice, wine, alcohol and maybe some faint additional fruits in the back. A bit too hot for my personal preference, but not awful.

Tasting at Astor Wines. Just called "Dassai 23" in ’Merica. I had to put on the puppy dog eyes for this one after it "ran out".
Pretty purple paper neck wrap. Sake was clear & still.
Super subtle, a little disappointing. Similar profile to the 39, but just more airy & delicate(re:restrained). Maybe more banana then apple this time, and definitely no where near as hot. Earthy yeast.
Flavor is tiptoeing apple acidity & powdered sugar dusted pineapple sweetness. Just a twinge of complimenting bitterness that is very neutral. Light to moderate starch. A little watery, yet slick.
I trust what I can taste & smell, but I probably took too big a baby step with this one.

In bottle at Craigs. Pours a slightly yellow, clear colour. A distinct aroma of Bertie Bassett’s blue bobbly brim, coconut and alcohol. Similar liquorice, coconut and alcohol flavours. Tasty.

Bottle at cgarvieuk’s. Clear pour. Big aniseed, slight pineapple, pretty rough alcohol nose. A distinct note of Bertie Bassett’s blue bobbly brim. Slightly aniseed palate, but some juicy coconut also. Finish is surprisingly clean considering the nose.

Bottle 720ml. @ Brasserie 4:20, Via Portuense 82, Roma, Italy.

Crystal clear water colour with virtually no head. Aroma is moderate rice, fruity - pineapple, coconuts. Flavour is moderate sweet with a average to long duration, rice, fruity, light alcohol. Body is medium, texture is oily - smooth, carbonation is flat, finish feel is light alcoholic. [20110516]
