Woow, I fell in love with this sake.
It actually resembles a renowned Chinese grain alcohol Wu Liang Ye in terms of flavor.
Very sweet, extremely smooth, medium body, somewhat short after taste though.

DLD ’08: Bottle shared by moejuck: Pours clear with some pretty solid legs after a swirl. Aroma, earthy, rice, some fruit character to it. Flavor, rice, some spices, grains, almost bready, fruity notes. The alcohol was pretty evident, and while I’m not a sake fan this was by far the best one I’ve tasted.

UPDATED: OCT 9, 2008 Big thanks to Bman113VR for bringing this treat over. Pours a pale yellow color. Nose is fruity maybe blueberries and almost no rice. Taste is sweet and incredibly smooth. Feels like fresh pure spring water. Nice soft and thick mouthfeel. What an amazing sake.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: SEP 22, 2008 Aroma is extremely fruity and clean. Golden hued body with extremely strong legs. The taste is so smooth it hurts. Fruity, but subtle, a perfect balance. Flows overy your tongue and down your throught like conditioned velvet. You haven’t expirianced great sake until youve tried Divine Droplets.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma has licorice, plastic, vanilla, ice cream. Clear of course but not as bright water, perhaps a hint of color there? Tough to tell from a ceramic sake glass that casts shadows. Alcohol in the nose but only when you hold it in your mouth, otherwise for raw aroma and flavor there’s nothing there but smoothness. It dissolves like an angel cake. What a special drink.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Very clean aroma of licorice, pine, anise and crisp, yet milky rice pudding. hatever you want to call it, very clean and slight crisp.
Taste is so fucking clean, like obnoxiously so. Somewhat milky and lactic with a lingering rice-like anise flavor. Also some melon, taro- just very slight fruitiness with the anise, rice pudding, milkiness.
Where the fuck is the alcohol bite?
This is crazy smooth and slightly sweet.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampled and shared by the wine buyer for Zipps Liquors in Minnesota. Pours a clear golden crystal sake with a slightly extra thickness. Aroma of some tropical fruit, flowery, a touch of apple and rice alcohol. Taste is a little alcoholic with flavors of spring flowers, some apple and even coconut. Finish has a light vanilla and rice alcohol aftertaste. This sake may have been aged a little but still quite good.
