kermis (8524) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - NOV 5, 2013
Bottle shared at Sushi Morikawa, The Hague. Pours pretty much completely clear. Aroma of pepper, wood, vanilla and rice sugar. Flavour is over moderate sweet with a pleasant alcohol note to finish. Flat with a more oily mouthfeel than the appearance suggests. Pretty good!

madvike (3149) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 18, 2013
Bottle - Pours clear with no head. Lightly spicy cedar nose, mellow rice with a little warmth. Taste has more of the cedar--it’s upfront with the mellow rice underneath and a little odd fruitiness. Very peppery, though smooth. Warming finish with just a bit of sharpness. Light-bodied and a little slick.

Strong cedar aroma with hint of rice and soy. Really not much to rate on the appearance - crystal clear. Slightly sweet rice and cedar flavor with a mild alcohol finish. Very nice - love the cedar.

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - JUN 4, 2012
6/4/12. bottle from mekong. it pours about as crystal clear as ’off clear’ can be... thin looking. great aroma.... milder than expected having been in a barrel... woody (but not distinctively cedar), mushroom, powdered sugar, sweet rice pudding, mild alcohol and lots of florals but not overly flowery. definitely picks up more cedar-like woodiness as it warms. the flavor is more of the same.... but quite subdued and mild.... not sweet... bubblegum notes, vanilla, scant tartness on finish. powdery texture in an otherwise light mouth feel. i’m liking this a lot...
