yngwie (14762) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 11, 2015
Bottle, from trade with fonefan. A clear one, with a faint yellow body. Green bananas, petroleum, alcohol and some rice in the aroma. Cheesy. It’s quite boozy, oily and thin bodied, with rice, cheese and some petroleum. Lasting cheesy and petroleum-ish finish with alcohol and booze. Not very good this one, close to drainpour. 150411

GoufCustom (963) - HONG KONG - AUG 16, 2014


300 ml bottle bought at Wellcome Superstore in Sheung Shui.

Clear and colourless; Fragrant aroma of rice wine, with fresh pears, peaches, ume (Japanese apricot), alcohol, sugar and light boiled glutinous rice; Medium sweet taste of rice spirit, with mashed pear flesh, light floral, strong warming alcohol and moderate tartness; Light body, dry and watery palate; Mouth feel is fairly dry - sake style - in a very watery body. Fairly strong rice tartness background, with nice light pureed pear closely followed by strong, smart, slightly warming 15% booze, which is light, sharp but never harsh. Very likeable and dangerous… Fairly dry after taste; Light and fruity to mouth.

Comments: This one is a crowd pleaser because it’s so easy to mouth with nice peary esters and seemingly timid alcohol. Don’t be fooled: this is a nice sipper from the get-go. Just respect it and you’ll be rewarded with a relaxing session. A nice and easy one!

3fourths (8456) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 19, 2013
Skinless pear, white grapes, alcohol, paint / plaster, mashed rice. Medium sweetness, medium-low acidity, a bit syrupy. Biting alcohol upon swallowing and a lingering buzz of hot alcohol late. Why am I drinking sake?
