A full-bodied drink with SMV+7, this super-dry sake has a strong presence and thick flavor with almost no perceptible smell or sweetness.

Nose is sweet and sour. Pours a clear color. Tastes like citrus a bit and is very sweet and soft, almost watery. Alcohol content is amazingly hidden. Pretty nice but I am no saki expert.

cocnut, some rice, very light alcohol aroma also....clear as can be ... quite sweet and pleasant, but lacks something.. alcohol is hidden very well, for 15-16 it is a dream ... i can see this going well with a spicy dish... overall: a nice easy going simple sake but i have had better for cheaper, a good starter sack!

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - SEP 3, 2007
Clear still white. Nose held light fruity notes with touches of flroals and steamed white rice. Initial rubbing alcohol flavors slowly warm to anise and ricey notes. Light bodied with loads of alcohol. Might as well have been the standard warm Ozeki. Way to rough around around the edges...

CapFlu (5101) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 23, 2007
(180ml bottle) Purchased at the BC Liquor Store. Pours a clear, lightly viscous body with a nutty (waterchestnut) and alcohol nose. Flavour is mildly syrupy but a wet almond nuttiness.

Oakes (15806) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 1, 2007
Slight greenish hue. Aroma is fruity, woody and alcoholic, with light florals. Dry palate with straightforward notes of alcohol, light rice and only a hint of wood/florals. It’s all sort of vague, which is not a good thing...too simple. The dryness handles wasabi well but overall the experience both with and without nigiri is a bit flat.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - JAN 29, 2007
UPDATED: FEB 11, 2007 180mL Bottle: Drank out of a masu (my first time). Poured a clear color. Nose of clean banana and koji, light pine (compliments of my tasting vessel) and some sweet peach skin notes. The flavor has a moderate alcohol feel to it with a balanced acidity and a touch of umami. Neutral seimaibuai too. Fairly bland, which to some could be a good thing. Alcohol and light butter in the tail. I like a bit more umami to my sakes.
