3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle served at SakeOne. Clear body with lots of thick legs. The aroma is floral with notes of vanilla and koji. Crisp aromas. The flavor is sweet rice and floral notes. Dry. Almost vermouth like. The palate is dry and substantially silken and crisp, but leaves a light sweetness on the long finish. Clean.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured clear like water. The aroma was of rice, mild-moderate sweetness. Light fruit in the essence of pear. The flavor has a short fruit sweetness but becomes nice and dry. Good warmth but no alcohol taste. Drank cold.

Salty mouth feel...smooth with a sour salty apple taste....sour apple, mild vinegar aroma....stream water in color (a good stream, maybe in the mountains)...my 1st rated sake yet not the 1st I’ve drank...its ok...it doesn’t give you the "shot cringe face"....pretty smooth for a mid-priced sake...cost was $14.99 for a 750 ml...consumed chilled

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
The aroma is very neutral with mostly rice and alcohol. The appearance is clear and still. The flavor is like the aroma. The palate is thin. Overall it’s drinkable and decent but nothing special just your run of the mill sake.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
quite a strong dry sake, the sake itself is self contained with its own flavors, it works well with a nice wood finish. a very tad of tartness happens at the end.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Chilled. Flavor-wise, it’s nothing special; pretty one dimensional rice flavor. It does, however, have a nice mouthfeel and is smooth as silk to drink.
