3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, purchased in Japan, 12/14/2013. Clear pour, light golden sheen apparent. Aroma is honeysuckle, rich melon, peach flesh, tropical candy sweetness, with a clean fresh finish. Taste is lightly fruity, not as heavy as the nose suggests, pear and melon, with clean rice mid-palate, anise finish. Silky body, touch of heat lingering on the breath. Lovely, nice and balanced.

Bottled. Pale yellow colour, no head. Aroma is fruity and floral notes with some mild spices and alcohol. Nice resiny notes as well as it warms up a bit. Flavour is quite much the same in a pleasant balance. This one worked rather well in room temperature.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. A light yellow sake. The aroma is sweet and dominated by rice, and so is the flavor, while the alcohol leaves a burn in the throat. Thanks Storm for sharing.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pale green tones. Complex fruity and licorice aroma with a hint of alcohol. In the mouth it becomes a star, rich licorice flavours blending with fruit and a hint of almonds. Silky texture. Very good.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Wow, the commercial description is right on. This has an aroma of fresh cut honeydew melon and minerals, and a more polished alcohol nose. Refreshing and clean, with well balanced acidity, and a bittersweet finish.
