Subtle floral aroma. Pours clear. The taste is Medium sweet. Vanilla, almond notes, alchocol warmth, with a slight graininess in the finish. Full body with a creamy texture. Overall, I liked this, but a little goes a long way.

scooterbub (1031) - Lander, Wyoming, USA - JUN 30, 2016
375 ml bottle. Pours clear. Taste is of rice and alcohol. Lighter aroma. Watery body with a rice finish. Not bad, but a little lite on the palate for me.

The aroma is slightly fruity, flowers. Appearance is clear, like water. The flavor is a tad sweet for something with dry in the name,a bit fruity, melon, pear. The finish is a little fruity, mostly dry. Medium, perhaps a bit thin i body. I actually found it to be a bit refreshing, and the alcohol not at all noticeable. Of course, i don’t drink a lot of sake, so that has to factor into this rating.

Erzengel (7889) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - OCT 2, 2015
Thanks to Simon for sharing! Typical melon-like alcoholic smooth nose. Neutral smooth fruity nose. Very smooth mild, fresh melon with a smooth and mild but a bit neutral body. Easy to drink with a fruity mild aftertaste. Not too bad.

Pour from a Bottle at Hagi, a Japanese Sake Bar/Izakaya (finger food.) Aroma of rice, almonds, alcohol. Appearance: Water. Flavor is rice, almond, and a lot of alcohol on the end. Palate is alcoholic with some sweetness. I don’t see as much of a point of this when there is Shochu instead. Don’t let them sell this Junmai for a high price, it’s whiskey like.
