COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Worthy of the name of Ozeki's founder. This is special Daiginjo sake. Full-bodied, with a rich bouquet, yet has a refined, drinkable flavor that holds up. Its rice is highly polished and carefully fermented at a low temperature.

Pours clear. Smells of sweet melon, moderate booziness, some strawberry undertones. Wonderful nose. Tastes on the sightly sweet/boozy end of the spectrum with some subtle, light fruity undertones on the finish. Very boozy at the end. Enjoyable.

Chobei has aromas of low-acidic fruits like honeydew, ripe pear, a hint of banana and faint anise. Kinda reminds me of Wrigley’s Juicyfruit, but I haven’t had any in a while so I could be wrong. Appearance is crystal clear; a swirl exposes nice legs. It tastes like it smells with a little more heat from the alcohol than I expected and it is semi-dry. I get a hint of milk chocolate (but my co-tasters disagree). The texture is nice and thick; almost oily. Moderate complexity. The finish is medium-long and dry. Overall, an excellent value Daiginjo.

Bottled, at Hotel Mulia, Senayan, Jakarta, Indonesia. Pale yellow, somewhat viscous. Fruity aniseed aroma. Mid sweet with medium body and oily mouthfeel. Dough, milk chocolate, honey and white pepper. Licorice in a finish with some heat.

Countbeer (4303) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - JUL 18, 2013
From a Cardboard box: Served in a porcelin cup. Mention of 14.5%ABV. Clear as water (as it looked from the darkened porcelin cup). Aroma is a nice rice and grainy mix with some cream and dust, liquor/alcohol and a bit of a nail polish remover touch to it, just a tiny teeny bit. The flavour was really soft. Nothing extraordinary, but a well balanced real rice tasting drink. Very soft and smooth, rice set the tone, some yeast/dust, cream, oily, slight hint of alcohol, and the slightest tone of nail polish removal (specially in the aroma and way less in the flavour). No carbo, soft creamy oily texture, medium to lightly fuller bodied and a oily texture. Very nice and smooth!

Bottle at Hachi’s Kitchen in Chicago. Pours very clear with maybe a hint of fog at the edge. The nose is clean with notes of rose and honeydew, clean white rice. No alcohol is apparent in the nose. There is a slight musty note, I assume that to be the koji. On taste, very full body with more of the floral and fruit notes. Cherry blossom and more melon and cucumber. Light alcohol notes that make you think they are going to push it over the edge but don’t. Clean finish that sits with more melon. Pretty fantastic stuff.

Imagine my surprise finding a Daiginjo in a One Cup style! Not sure what to make of this one, not much aroma, alcohol, some koji & almonds. Has a slight sweetness up front but finishes with an interesting dry buttery feel. Better than any other “cup sake” I’ve had but not even close to the Ji-zake I’ve come to love.
Earlier Rating: 12/17/2006 Total Score: 3.2
Clear colorless sake. Koji, fruit and a mild alcohol scent, a lightly scented sake, not overpowering. A mild sweetness up front with koji and almonds followed by a cedary alcohol as it warms in the mouth. Light body, the added alcohol is evident but not unpleasant. For those that appreciate simplicity, you would appreciate the delicate subtle flavors. Not bad, just doesn’t knock my socks off.
