Glass at Wachi. Oily, slightly yellow, clear. Big rice nose, some spice, peppery, mizuame. Flavor is sweet, full, and ricey, with caramel, pepper, vanilla, mizuame. Thick and rich body, very smooth. Lovely stuff, big and lots of rice. It does end up feeling a bit too sweet, though, and gets cloying. Great in small quantities.
