jikvig (269) - NORWAY - OCT 25, 2010
Aroma; Almonds, yeast and sitruszest Flavour; Sweet from the very present alcohol, but its not dominating. Very rich taste, sits for a long long time! Summary; What a harmony! If you can get your hands on this; get it!!!!

thebeertourist (4815) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 23, 2010
UPDATED: MAY 27, 2010 Batch no 001. 15% Yamada Nishiki rice, 85% Ginpu rice. Semaibuai 70%, yeast no 701, Nihonshu-do: -6. From 350 ml bottle at Olympen (may I suggest smaller bottles, for instance 18 cl ( 1go), since this sake is likely to be sold mostly via bars). Clear, hints of pale straw colour. Fruity and yeasty aroma. Yellow apples aroma. Apples, alcohol, quite dry finish with hints of cedar wood. Warming alcohol. Drier than expected from the low nihonshu-do. Good complexity. Quite full-bodied, a bit oily. No compromises from Nøgne Ø when it comes to sake brewing either. Rare rice types, a high rice polishing ratio (though not ginjo grade) and no brewer’s alcohol added. The result is very promising; I am really looking forward to batch no 002. Way to go, Hadaka Jima!
