Bottle shared with northropfrye. It’s hard for me to rate sakes since I rarely consume them and have never tried different kinds back to back. But I think it smells like honey and flowers. but the taste is a little harsh and boozy for me.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light clear body, slightly yellow, but very faint. Aroma of rice, of course, but also sweet vanilla, tropical fruit and banana. Taste is a bit boozy, sweet, kind of dry watery finish. Not a bad sake but nothing spectacular.

Tallahassee, Fl - New Leaf Market - 300 ml bottle. Pours a glinty clear with a light oily sheen. Aroma has some peppermint candy like notes, a brief whiff of alcohol. Flavor has some light coconut, a touch of peppermint, some alcohol - not too dissimilar from vodka. Not bursting with flavor. Crisp mouthfeel.
