served hot. This is my first saki rating, so I cant say much more than that it was light and mostly boozy, but inoffensive.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sweet vodka in aroma along with some nutty hints. Dry alcohol with hints of lemon and rice. A bit other fruits too.
Warmed up (approx 40 C):
Sweet Vodka aroma. Dry alcohol with hints of fruit and rice in flavour. Alcohol is more present than at room temperature.
On The Rocks:
Vodka aroma. Very dry stinging alcohol in flavour. Boring.
My first sake.

Maybe I’m just not knowledgeable enough whre sake is concerned ... or maybe I just haven’t had the good stuff. Had Gekkeikan last night, served warm. I nursed it and it seems the first few sips were pretty good, all ricey and what-not. But by the end of the cup, it was tasting more and more like pure alcohol. I poured the last little bit out. Won’t be buying it again.

This tastes too much like alcohol. It seems to me cheap and unworthy of my time and money. It is nice to your throat all warm going down though, especially if you’re sick or getting sick.

Nutty hazlenut, almond aroma, nice effervescence. Dry. Not especially viscuous. A bit of burn but the lower alcohol seems apparent. Clear water color. I know this is supposed to be cheap sake but I find these things rather enjoyable.

Looks like water with a twinge of green to it. Nose is like cheap vodka. The taste up front is not good-it is almost all alcohol. The back end is a diffrent story-apple/pear with some sweet alcohol flavor. Interesting. This isn’t bad, but I wouldn’t drink it on a regular basis.
