Typical soft o sake nose. Very sweet and fragrant in the mouth. Rice, honey, some orchard fruits (apples,pears etc). Decent length and alcohol is reasonably well hidden. Solid stuff.

obguthr (4101) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - FEB 23, 2011
Pronounced blueberry muffin nose. Clear with only the slightest yellowish hue. Quite sweet flavor of blueberry initially, finishes with honey dew. Alcohol is very noticeable, but that is to be expected and it isn’t excessive for what it is. Best sake I’ve had to date.

Bottle courtesy of solan. Pours a very light goldish color. Nose is rosewater, fruit and spice. Taste is dates, plums, citrus and alcohol. Very smooth. Thanks Alan!

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - SEP 18, 2008
Poured a crystal clear and slight yellow. The aroma was fruity and nice. Notes of pears, honey and anise. Flavors of honey and pear with lighter notes of vanilla and rice. Great warmth with a small alcohol bitter bite on the finish. Silky smooth medium bodied that drys and seems to fold away. Man I love Sake.

BlackDonald (1126) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 13, 2008
This has a nice nose as well, rich citrus fruits, and some fresh orchids. Almost picking up some ripe red fruits on the palate, as well as a little bit of spice. This is definitely more elegant than others I have tried. Great acidity, and extremely smooth mouthfeel. Very well done!
