Looks like skimmed non-fat milk when poured into glass. Somewhat sweet scent. Not huge. Heavy alcohol flavor (15% after all) that reminds me of a vodka or well filtered single-malt whisky. Perha[ps a little coconut to it. Thick body due to rice stuff thatís included. White flecks coat the side of the glass when you put it down. Light sweetness lingering on the palate a minute or two after drinking it. Tried it so as to say Iíve tried some of the sake list here, but wonít go out of my way to drink it again unless itís at some sushi restaurant. ADDENDUM: Let the sake warm up a little while I wrote the review above. The huge alcohol kick is a bit more muted now that itís warmed up.

SphinxTX (2875) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - MAR 24, 2009
Bottle thanks to ilovedarkbeer. Pours a cloudy white, kinda milky, faint white legs. Aroma of melon, coconut, perhaps faint vanilla?????? Hard to tell. Flavor is sweet, melon, I think some coconut. Mouth feel is medium-heavy body with no carbonation, kinda creamy. Overall, I didnít think it was half bad, need more sakeís.

Bottle thanks to ilovedarkbeer. Milky white in appearance with rice particle left after the dissapointing milky white legs disappear. Aroma s coconut milk, rice and a little alcohol. Taste is of coconut and light apricot with a big alcohol finish.

Pours a cloudy white color with chalky creamy rice particles all over the sides. Nose is baby powder, chalk, and sweet coconut milk. Taste is dominated by coconut creme milk. Mouthfeel is chalky and kind of thick but the back end is really hot.

BMan1113VR (7914) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAR 20, 2009
Bottle thanks to ilovedarkbeer. Pours milky with particles of rice left on the side of the glass. Aroma is strong of alcohol, with rice hulls and koji, coconut and banana aromas. Pretty sweet smelling. Flavor is marred by a clotted cream texture with coconut mill alcohol and buttery sweetness. No balance, alcohol is evident.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 6, 2009
Pours a very cloudy, grainy off white after being mixed up. Smells of vanilla, rice, aome sweet hints, boozy. Tastes grainy and sweet and fruity with a nice vanilla bite on the finish. Iím really digging Nigori sake!
