Bottle from the Pennsylvania State Store. Rather bland and uninteresting. Nothing outstanding here except the low price.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Fu-Ki sake has a clear appearance. The aroma has rice and a faint hint of citrus. Neither come through when I sip, though; it’s a little bitter, and I don’t get much else taste-wise. The palate is medium bodied and flat. I’m a bit disappointed.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
750ml bottle, shared by robotopera during a sushi party. Bottle is labeled "Fu-Ki Junmai". Totally clear and colorless. More of a potent nose. Sweet rice, and rice pudding. Some warmth in the nose. Bigger, wine-like body. No carbonation, totally still. Some bruised fruit in the flavor, alcohol. Sweet taste, and a moderate warmth in the finish. Some green olive, friends say light vinegar. Overall, surprisingly not awful. Sipping it at room temperature from a snifter was totally tolerable. Out of curiosity, we tried mixing some Sapporro into it (to simulate a sake bomb) , it was not good, way better straight.

This is my favorite sake (rice wine), with a sweet, rich flavor and appealing "rice pudding" aroma!

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: APR 20, 2011 Wonderful Sake. Smells like a rich Nigori, but unfortunately it is clear. Not that big a deal though, tastes like as good a Traditional Sake as there is.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(750ml bottle thanks to Mora2000) Just off clear. Smells of alcohol, buttery, just a bit of green apple. Tastes better than it smells- a bit sweeter, more fruit, clean. Nice and fruity.
