3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle while grabbing quick lunch. Pours very opaque white. Nose is fruity and of rice. Tastes of strawberries, pineapple, honey dew, egg whites, rice, and coconut water. Touch starchy on palate but goes down smooth and hides abv. Nice summer sake

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours like watered down milk. Aroma is rice, wine and some floral notes. Taste adds a sweet coconut milk note. Mouthfeel is chalky and a little sticky. This is actually incredibly enjoyable, but I'm not entirely sure how to convey that properly in a sake review.

Exquisite packaging. Pours white. Nose of slight pepto-bismol, honeydew. Flavour is honeydew, coconut milk, good quality rice, alcohol. The first sake Iíve really liked, I think Iíve only had the cheapest stuff till now.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle was opened a 3 days ago, finishing off the last few ounces. Served chilled in an ochoko-like glass cup. Pours very cloudy after shaking (which is good for a coarse filtered sake. Smells of rice being cooked. Wine is thicker than other sakes, in the same way skimmed milk is thicker than water. Taste is sweet on the tongue but quickly becomes very strong.
Rice settles if left too long. Leaves sugar-rice residue on cup.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Itís a very milky white sake, with some very fine light grey particles. Thereís alcohol on the nose, hints of rice, as well as a good fruityness. Peaches and other tropical fruits. Thereís a whole lot of fine grain particles in the mouth, with the strange viscosity Iíve had in lots of sakes. Not oily, not full-bodied, not thin. Just canít find the word or words for it. Peaches, cucumber, some green grapes and a touch of rice in the flavor. Umami hints and a good dash of lighlty warming alcohol too. Long finish. A pleasant one, although Iím not sure if I like the particles as coarse as in this one. 130903

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
375mL from La Bodega. Shaken as instructed- pours opaque milk with spots of sediment left on the sides of the glass. Soft, fruity nose full of coconut and pineapple. Tropical. Taste is starchy, a quick finish gives some dry/tannic rice starch but it isnít long or abrasive. A flash of fruity white alcohol up front fizzles rapidly. Refreshing, doesnít show the abv. Nice stuff.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Selected this bottle at a Japanese store this morning and literally didnít know what to expect... It pours out like skimmed milk (actually I hate that milk and prefer the full fat version, but probably every woman knows the look of skimmed milk): Cloudy light white colour, thin body. The nose was of flowers, peaches and Sake. Taste of eggwhite, pineapple, berries, flowers, rice and green fruits. Very dry finish. Enjoyed it a lot - one of the best Sakes ever!
