RafeAU (629) - Los Angeles, California, USA - NOV 19, 2015
Bottle in LA. Imported. Aroma has some mild fruitiness and hot alcohol. Clear and near colourless. Somewhat syrupy viscosity, hint of sweetness, some subtle fruitiness, rice alcohol character, hint of acidity, dry finish with warming, slightly hot alcohol. Pretty good but wouldnt get it again at this high import price.

3fourths (9064) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 19, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 20, 2013 Clear faint bronze color. Overripe pear skin, toasted nuts / nut oils / hazelnut and vanilla aroma and flavor. Savory umami with lip-smacking acidity well-matched for the medium-full body and semi-sweet sugar level. Best sake Ive had in years. Im no longer a fan of sake so to get a mid 3 from me is like a 4+ from someone else. I will drink this again if I find it on a menu, though I probably wont ever buy a bottle for home consumption given how strong it is.

BMan1113VR (7914) - Los Angeles, California, USA - AUG 26, 2012
Bottle. Pours with good clarity, water like paleness and strong legs. Aromas are strongly fragrant and fruity with some koji. Strong, fresh watermelon, cantaloupe, banana, kiwi, lychee, bright fruit blossoms, asian plum. Alcohol is quite strong as well which detracts. Flavors are fruity with very light koji and umami touches. Still quite fruit forward with medium perceived sweetness (alcohol might enhance this character). Floral and juicy stone fruit. Clean, light minerality and a very good balance despite the alcohol. Still bodied, good viscosity and warming but contained considering the massive ABV. Overall: elegant jet fuel!
