Bottle, shared with BBGTC. Near-clear pale yellow body. Aroma is baker’s yeast, rice, maize, minerals, dried herbs, hints of alcohol and mild woody tones. Taste is wood, raisins, port wine-like sweet notes, alcohol and hints of apple peel, nuts and straw. Complex and nice, a very pleasant sake.

Very light straw colored, completely clear. Aroma is mild and slightly dry boozy, hay, alcohol, minerals, fermented rice, wood. Taste is slightly dry sour-ish, minerals, hay, wet grass, alcohol, wood, citrus, yeast. Slightly dry boozy mouthfeel. Fair enough.

The new and old batch is very different. I would never have guessed this was the same if I din’t already know it...

a_cross (623) - Poole, Dorset, ENGLAND - MAY 24, 2014
My first ever sake; pale greenish gold; aroma is an odd mix of white port, fino sherry, peaty whisky and rhubarb; taste also reminds me dry sherry; it’s very boozy; some cidery apples in there too; mushroom is the surprise flavour; completely new, unexpected flavours and a very enjoyable change from the usual.
