Honey dew, grain alcohol, licorice, fusel, light fruits, and flowers. Medium yet grainy finish. Just ok

Much cleaner smell that the Gekkeikan Gold I just had. Clear color. Taste is more ephemeral, lighter alcohol and again a hint of plum flavor.

Lonick (1588) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 4, 2015
Bottle @ Craig’s. Pours just on the yellow side of clear, nose of fruits, slight sweetness on the nose and a touch of melon. Taste very much the same.

pilsnerrogge (2829) - Finspĺng, SWEDEN - MAR 13, 2004
Looks like water. Smells great; candy, toffee and melon. Taste of alcohol and baking powder, maybe some rice as well. This was my first sake and if it wasn't for the aroma it could've been my last.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - MAY 28, 2006
Clear as water, of course. The aroma is faint yet perfumy with grasses and melons. Smooth to drink. The flavor is grassy with melon and a touch of anise. A very quiet drink - until it hits bottom and the strong abv is felt.

Bottled. My second sake, if I remember correct. Clear see-through no-coloured and no headed.<!-- br --> Fridge cold (7-8 C). Aroma is alcohol, rice and citrus fruity. Flavour is rice, a bit alcohol, watermelon and some citric hints. The alcohol noteable is quite "sharpedged". Dry palate. <!-- br --> Room Temperature (17-18C). Aroma gets a bit "fuller" of the same as colder. The main difference is the alcohol which now fits in better both in aroma and flavour. Dry palate. <!-- br --> Warmed up to about 30C. Smooth as whole impression, the alcohol in not as sharpedged anymore, and it somehow feels even more full than the lower temperatures. A bit warm vodkaish, but the fruityness (citrus and watermelon) was a big positive thing compared to Gekkeikan (Laurel Crown) Traditional Light Sake. Quite easy to drink, especially when warmer.
