Milky coconut milk type appearance. Coconut milk type aroma too incidentally, sweet. Thick creamy mouthfeel. 18% alcohol shows down the throat but doesn’t detract, not much on the tongue. Flavor is sweet and creamy, some fruitiness, then all suddenly interrupted by alcohol. I enjoyed the ’substance’ this sake had.

One of my favorites! Love the unfiltered fuller, more complete flavor of this local sake

Pour from bottle at Yama. Pour is milky white with no head and good legs. Savory, bitter, green apples, banana, and caramel in the aroma. Taste is sweet caramel corn, rich bitter, green apples, pears, and tangy with a him of alcohol on the backend. Slick mouthfeel with soft carbonation. Not bad.

Sampled form a 300 ml blue bottle this sake poured a milky white color that left great lacing a particulates. The aroma was rice, vodka, cream and a hint of black pepper. The flavor was vodka, rice, a hint of melon, cream and vanilla. Long sweetish rice, melon and cream finish. Full bodied. Quite nice.

milky off-white with particulates (like rice milk or almond milk). creamy and a bit coating.

aroma: sticky rice, warm alcohol, strong yeast character (just like turbo yeast), and faint apple and pear esters.

taste: sweet nutty rice, bitter yeast residue, mild acidity, and warm alcohol.

overall, rather boring. not unpleasant, just lacking brightness and enticing esters.

Had along side my sushi dinner. Looks milk like, grainy nose, some hot alcohol, creamy. A nice sake, but my least favorite out of the flight I had.

750ml bottle, shared at a family Hibachi dinner. ABV labeled as 18% on the back. Bottle was chilled, and shaken well before served into tiny white ceramic shot glasses. The waiter offered me a wine glass for mine, I accepted. Either he guessed that I like to take notes on appearance, or they ran out of ceramic thimble glasses, I’m not sure. Creamy milky off-white color, like condensed milk, but clearly not as thick. Leaves a lot of residue on the side of the glass. Ricey, kind of a boozy nose. Kind of a sweet smell. Desert-like, like rice pudding. Bigger body. Thick. But not sticky. More dry. Rice pudding aroma. Not really any carbonation. Light alcohol burn, kinda sweet. For the ABV, this is surprisingly not bad to sip.
