Chilled pink bottle from Grapes of Mirth. Poured cloudy white color with sticky particle legs. Moderate coconut, candy almonds and melons aroma. Medium body with a creamy unfiltered texture. Medium pineapple, vanilla and coconut rice flavor with a medium creamy sweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations were met with a complex sake

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Milky white pour, thick particles sticking to the sides of the glass. Nose is mild banana and cream, some milky pear, some herbs and some strange sort of pineapple character. First few sips are full, chewy and then gritty on the back, punctuated by an incredibly unpleasant bite as it is swallowed. Harsh and husky rice, more banana, pear, green apple, some creamy vanilla ice cream but also some sour lactic notes. The unpleasant bite subsides and nearly disappears towards the bottom of the glass.

Bottle to snifter (shared with ther Mrs.). Looks good for a nigori; a still, cloudy, skim milky off-white. Smells solid; alcohol and creme. Tastes like it smells, but slightly less robust. Smooth on the palate. An enjoyable sake.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sampled from a 750 ml bottle this sake poured a pale milky color. Only a mild level of viscosity with lots of particulates left behind. The aroma is creamed rice and a hint of perfume. The flavor has a pronounced alcohol bite with noted astringency followed by rice, vodka, soap, perfume and a hint of pepper. Medium length finish of astringent alcohol and rice. Medium bodied though slick in a way that seems watery. Ok.
