3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
72 cL bottle. Pours clear and pale white with no head. Light woody and spiced alcohol aroma. Flavour is light liqourice and dry. Ends with a dry liqourice note. Again an ouzo like thing. It will take quite some time for me to learn to appreciate these kind of drinks.

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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
RBSG Portland 2004. Virtually colorless. Aroma of flowers, grain, white peach, pumpkin, pear. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic. Light to medium body, watery texture, flat carbonation, moderately alcoholic. One of the few attractive and enjoyable sakes I’ve tried (though I haven’t tried too many, especially in the upper tier; the typical aroma/flavor profile in sake doesn’t appeal to me much, so I’d sooner put $50 into a red wine). Nice balance and pleasant aroma. Domo arigato to Jordan for letting me sample some of this!
