Brought a 1.5L of this to the grand tasting at RBSG in Philly. Pours clear. Lightly floral with a touch of banana on the nose. Warm rice notes. Sweet, and a bit warm. Rice and sweet toasted rice. Warm and sweet on the finish. Not too bad, and certainly didn’t have any problems putting away the last half a liter of this that remained after the tasting.

UPDATED: JUN 5, 2011 1.5 L botle at RBSG. Pours hazy paley white and no head. Aroma is fruity and slight butterish. Sweet rice and fruity, alcohol and rice flavoured. Dry and rice into the finish. Ends dry.

scooterbub (1031) - Lander, Wyoming, USA - APR 16, 2011
375 ml bottle. Pours a crystal clear. Really clings to the glass. Taste is of rice, alcohol and some fruit. Similar aroma. Is a little on the light side, with a slick body. Not a bad sake for the price.

Not a bad sake, considering the price this sake is very decent. I drink it when I have people over and they just love it as well.

Hmm. No ratings. Not a bad sake. Served hot which is a mistake. Pours an orange/ off white tinged color with no head and some legs. Nose is nail polish and fruit. Taste is sweet and fruity and has a harsh acidic bite that is confusing. I guess I would call this just ok.
