Thanks Chuck. The sake pours to a light yellow hued clear body with nice legs. The aroma is fruity with tons of melons and coconut with floral components like honeysuckle and lavender. I don’t get any alcohol vapors as one may expect with 18%. The flavor is nice with floral lavender and rice with a dash of jasmine. Very smooth and complex. The palate is warming and sweet but not fusel. Nicely complex and marvelous.

Bottled thanks to Chuck! Poured absolutely water clear with no bubbles present... lovely, very long legs to it. Aroma was of lighter fruits (mango, pear, and coconut jump out at me).. some darker alcohol notes lurk beneath. Flavor begins with pears, like the nose, opening into much warmer alcohol and milled rice notes.. finishing with sticky rice and some more fruit.. very smooth throughout, and not nearly as warm at the finish as expected. Very low if any carbonation on the palate and moderately warm. Left an enjoyable impression through the finish. Very good stuff. Thanks Chuck!

MIBRomeo (2493) - Wisconsin, USA - MAY 14, 2007
nearly clear pour w/ hints of a cloudy off yellow color w/ tall well defined legs on the glass. Aroma is definate notes of alcohol, coconut, rice, pears, and maybe a touch of vanilla. Palate is full bodied lightly creamy and coats well. The flavor is a very pleasant lightly fruity taste hints of milky coconut and rice w/ a drop of pear juice and a touch of vanilla w/ a warm swallow. Very easy to drink and quite nice.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 7, 2007
Very pale yellow clear liquid. Very tall thin legs. Rice milk, glue, raw coconut, hazelnuts, maple sap, and over-ripe pears in the aromas. This is some clean stuff. Again coconut milk with a light wood sap hint. Finish has a mild vanilla twist. Strong, but not foreboding. Quite relaxing and mellow, in an odd sort of way. Somewhat plastic resin resin linger. I like, in a strange way.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - DEC 28, 2005
A faint haze, like a clear day after a strorm in a spacious area. Faint egg-shell white, not quite pure clear. Nice oily legs. The nose is full, rich and complex. Sweet fruits, light paper, some alcohol, lightly minerally, not earthy but lightly dusty; clean and herbal with just a touch of koji. The flavor has a strong thick bite; lightly earthy and strong with some alcohol; earthy. The finish isn’t very lively but it is buttery with plenty of umami. Distinctively American, not in the fact that it’s brash, but just that there’s hardly any American kuras so you can learn the house flavor of all of them very easily. Good considering the alcohol. I want to use some japanese terms to describe this to get a better feel for them: Fukurami ga ii, Marumi ga aru, Omoi.
