2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This bottled sake from a bottle shop poured a extremely small sized head of frothy medium sized clear colored bubbles that were very quickly diminishing and left behind a transparent uncarbonated clear with a light yellow hued body and no lacing. The aroma was alcohol and polished rice. The smooth mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish with a burning alcohol aftertaste. The flavor contained notes of alcohol and polished rice. A typical alcohol burn sake, OK just nothing special.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sipped chilled. Poured crystal clear like water with a slight yellow tint to it. The aroma was clean with no alcohol. Some rice and fruit. Notes of pear and honeydew. The flavor had a semi-sweet start and was very smooth and clean. The alcohol was well hidden and there was a good dryness. Tasty stuff and went very well with my sushi dinner.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
300mL bottle from State Line Liquors, Elkton, MD. Poured absolutely clear with no head; about as exciting as a sake can look. Nice lacing. Aroma of rice, nuts, melon, plum and some alcohol. Sweet flavor at first; with some tropical fruit and nuts complimenting the rice. Initial sweetness gives way to rubbing alcohol flavor and a long, alcohol burn.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
300ml bottle. Nearly water like pour with just the faintest touch of gold. I mean really faint. Faint fruity aroma. Perhaps some kiwi and melon. Koji and rice. Simple but inoffensive. Bright fruit on the tongue initially. Followed by a pleasant woody dryness. The 15% is barely detectable. Medium bodied and quite firm on the palate for a sake. Finishes quite dry.

Bottle chilled from Sam’s Chicago. Poured clear pale color with legs. Moderate to heavy green apple, melon and alcohol aroma. Medium body with a medium smooth texture. Moderate to heavy green apple flavor with a medium to heavy sweet alcohol burn finish of long duration. I would recommend this to a freind.

Hmm, this is good, its full of sake flavors, with dry fruits, wood and it packs a punch. Totally refined.
