2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle as I battle through sleep deprivation and watch endless hours of tv. Pours straw yellow with nose of sweet rice. Tastes of pear, raisins, rice, way sweet simple syrup, some wet wood, and heavy cream. Odd one but I’m a sucker for these small sake bottles.

Bottle, 30cl. Courtesy of Cunningham. A clear, oily, flat sake. Alcoholic, cheesy nose with some rice water. Fruity. It’s warming and full bodied, slightly oily, with mature cheese, rice water, canned pears and some higher alcohols. Not very good this one. 140214

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Crystal clear. A very perfumy nose. Very dry with a mold-like flavour to it. Not inconsiderable acidity. Very light and with obvious alcohol.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a clear very light straw yellow. Woody and sweet aromas, fruity with some sweet rice cake aromas, daifuku I think they are. Medium bodied, a little minerally and oily. Smooth and silky at first, slightly sweet. Dries out big time and ends with slow warming alcohol on the finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear liquid, very nice lacing. The aroma is reminscent of playdough with a grassy fruity undertone. The flavor has lots of pear, and spice. Grass shows as well, with hints of banana, vanilla, cedar, cheese, and a spicy finish. Very nice!

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
An interesting idea a unpasturized sake. Smells sweet and yeasty a lot more character than I was expecting. Flavour is sweet and fresh with notes of plum. and it hardly has any of that feet flavour i have come to expect from sake. I say Very Good!
