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 I’ve 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 don’t 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 I’ve had; don’t know if this is characteristic of tokubetsu as I believe this is my first, but it’s 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 I’ve had yet.

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