UPDATED: AUG 9, 2015 Very clear pour. Looks like vodka. Has a rice and potato taste. But pretty much straight alcohol flavor. Pretty strong. My first sake. Very soft feel. Could be interesting.

375 ml Bottle. Taka sobie ale dosc dobrze zaromatyzowana zapachem owocow zwlaszcza cytrusow. Ryz wyczuwalny, pasuje do sushi to sake bo ryz tu bardzo dominowal z ta owocowoscia. Wyglad to jasno slomkowa barwa klarowna. Alkohol bardzo wyczuwalny i lekko rozgrzewajacy

Gekkeikan Sake employees are very unclean, they spit, blow snot rockets, urinate around the tanks and do not use gloves when handling the product. They also let mold grow inside the tanks with no regard for months.

had both warm and chilled with sushi. i don’t really have an established scale to rate sake, so this score is in relation to how much I enjoy beers, and the perceived quality of this compared to beers of the same score. Fairly generic but pleasant. A plum like sweetness and some abv showing no matter how it is sampled. Seems a standard.

Not a sake drinker. Given this bottle as a gift. Chilled. Tastes like slightly mellowed watered down vodka. Some light notes of grape or flowers, but significant alcohol burn and not much flavor. Couldn’t stomach more than a few ounces of it. My wife could only have one sip.
