This bottled Sake from the Mikado Restaurant in Indianapolis poured a clear body with an oily lacing. The aroma was that of sweet alcohol with a mild burn yet smooth. The mouth feel was vinous and smooth with a mild alcohol burn in the finish. It also had a heavy alcohol flavor typical of most sakes.

Rated this at Mikado in downtown Indianapolis, IN. Transparent and a clear hue. Nose was sweet, honey and alcohol. Flavor was sweet, syrupy, dry, somewhat vinuous and thick. Mouthfeel was tingly, dry, thick and syrupy. Light-medium body.

Sampled this sake at the inexpensive noodleshop "Republic" in NYC. It was disappointing, because Nanburyu turned out to have less in common with sake and more with jet fuel. The alcohol burn was atrocious for a purported Junmai. Besides the fuel aroma and flavor, the color was completely clear, which was nice. I didn’t get much else out of it, and I don’t think there was much there to find. Yes, I could go on about hints of raisins, the whiff of saddle leather and smell of moist parchment after a storm, but it’s just not me to make that crap up like I feel some others do. This Nanburyu is a lousy bang for your buck, in my opinion.

Completely clear body. Aroma is light -- alcohol, some spice, some fruit. Taste is sweet alcohol, orange, peach, pear -- quite delicately flavorful. Alcohol present in the finish but not particularly strong. Gives me an introduction to why sake is something to be appreciated.
