muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - FEB 28, 2008
300 ml bottle from City Market in Burlington, VT (February 2008), sampled out of the fridge from a Face Cachee de la Pomme glass. Utterly clear, probably the clearest sake Iíve had yet -- really impossible to tell apart from water aside from a very faint oiliness to the surface....legs are quite faint, nearly indistinct, and donít last.....subtle but quite pleasing aroma of nuts and bubblegum, coconut and perhaps just a hint of sweet cherry....the body is much drier than most sakes that Iíve had; donít know if this is characteristic of tokubetsu as I believe this is my first, but itís reminiscent of a dry Riesling, earthy and lightly alcoholic/sharp towards the finish, with little fruitiness and more than a hint of nuts....full and quite smooth, with a nice light tingly sharpness that comes in with a touch of warmth. Fascinating, and perhaps the most complex and hard to describe sake Iíve had yet.

Clear, no head. Aromas of vermouth, green skin plums and herbs. Flavours similar. Iím not an expert on sake (yet), but fragrant and easy drinking.

Bottle. Clear pour with no head. Sweeter rice-like notes, faint hints of booze, and some light coconut-like fruit notes. Actually pretty good.
