Vintage 2000. The sake pours to a light yellow hued glassy clear body with really sexy legs and a nice reflective property exists with the light play. The aroma is coconut, melon, rice, Asian pears, and some sort of herbs. The flavor is coconut, rice, melon, vanilla, and plum flowers. The palate is creamy, warming, and nicely textured.

Bottled, Vintage 2000, very special thanks to Blake! Poured a clear almost watery color, but had a tint of yellow to it... very nice legs to it. Aroma picked up some alcohol-fueled melons, some berries, and more fusel alcohol, especially as it warmed up. Flavor had a very intriguing berry and melon character that washed over the front of the palate.. some floral and some well-refined rice over the middle with a warm melon and polished rice back-end. Warm on the palate throughout with solid fruity notes and melon throughout. Tasty stuff that flowed very well across the palate.. warm, inviting, and eminently enjoyable! Thanks Blake!

Fruity aroma, strawberries mixed with kumquats. Pours clear. Smooth, alcohol, some fruits like berries and citrus, over powered by alcohol.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - DEC 1, 2005
Nice off clear color,aroma of fruits and maybe a hint of alcohol in the back ground but mostly fruity all around.The flavor comes off as being much the same as the aroma,some citrus and maybe some dryed fruits alnog with a mild alcohol presence.Very very nice brew that i could easily sit and drink until it’s gone.

Tryed 1992 reserve Kikusakari Daiginjo. Fantastic fruit aroma, with a strong pear core smell. Very light in the sake cup, with only a slight yellowing. Wow...the smell. Taste rolls over your tongue in a more subtle way than most daiginjo sakes. Unbelievable fruity taste...I taste pear, pineapple, orange, cherry, plum...it goes on. Tutti frutti is the best word for it. Don’t miss this. It will turn you into a sake fanatic.

Tried at the new NYC restaurant, Megu, in Tribeca (Manhattan). Their "kimono bar" has walls lined with rolls of kimono cloth and the sake menu was assembled with the help of John Gauntner - the #1 English-speaking sake expert. Boasting about 20 daiginjos, the list was impressive, and I settled on the Gekkakow, which was immensely fragrant of candy and sweetness. Again, it reminds me of cotton candy from the circus, and is quite sweet for sake. The abv is NOWHERE to be found, as you'd expect from such a premium offering. Light body with hints of fruit. Delicious.
