Bottle shared by wife’s friend. Aroma of light vodka, paint thinner, rice, and vanilla. Pours clear with nice clarity but no carb. Taste is vanilla, rice, sugar cane, and a bitter vodka finish. Pretty easy drink but some off-putting alcohol notes.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Ever so faint lemon-yellow reflection in utterly clear liquid. Bit fruity, also rosewater and... plum? Or is that the name suggesting? Benzene is there, but way less than the Japanese sakes tasted so far. Subtle, no doubt, but maybe a tad characterless. Sweetish, and a strange, plastic-like, nearly artificial flavour. Again very restrained, maybe too characterles; Again a stonefruit impression, if very faint. Serious alcoholwarming, throatburn, despite the velvety, indeed silky MF. Ill never turn into a sake geek, but I could drink this happily with a good Japanese meal. BTW, I know a very good one in Brugge....

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
First sake, so I have no idea what this should be like, but here goes...
Clear and colorless, with pretty good legs on the side of the glass. The aroma is green apples, juniper, caramel, and corn syrup. Mild, fruity sweetness, and a herbal bitterness. Fairly thick body, smooth, but with a vegetal feel, slightly grainy, and fairly astringent. There’s a relatively significant alcohol warming through the finish. Overall, this is a fun and flavorful drink.
