The best sake I’ve ever had. The bottle is a little cheesy art wise but I’ve had sake 10x as expensive but hats off this is it. Thanks. Perfect.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - SEP 5, 2007
Bottle: Pours a crystal clear color with light legs but a shimmering character. The nose is bright and fruity, lots of pear and anise, some alcohol and light coconut. The flavor is sweet and full bodied, nice bouquet, perfectly balanced, buttery and full. The quintessential sake by my litmus test. Quite! +2? Ok.

Pour out of bottle, clear pour with no head, aroma is nice white wine, grape, melon, nutty notes into a bit of peach, pear, some slight vanilla. Taste was a mix of tart grain, vanilla, honey into a bit of melon, slight peach, hints of white fruits into a bit of sugar, finishing sweet, slightly acidic. Nice.

Very pretty aroma. Bananas, plums, sweet rice pudding, tapioca. Pours pale gold leaving rich, oily legs down the glass. Flavor was drier than the sweet nose lets on. Some tropical fruit notes. Meduim to full bodied. Very rich and creamy. Nice sake for sure!

Bottle thanks to tytoanderso, I have now found this available at local stores. Pours clear and water like hue, very pure, with strongish legs. Aroma of vanilla almond, pear, melon, koji, butter and higher sweetness than a +2 would have you believe. Quite clean and pure smelling. Taste is nice, sweet and pure. Excellently balanced. With notes of nuts, vanilla, light umami, rose petals, lychee and concord grapes. Very nice and extremely light alcohol presence (btw, my bottle read 15%, not 16.5%). Viscous and full bodied, yet refreshing. Very, very pleasant. Paired exceptionally with cavaillon melon.

300ml bottle. Clear, but with a slight yellow tint. No legs. Aroma is a melony sweet alcohol. Flavor follows with more fruit. Body is slightly thick and finishes crisp. Paired with with some pear, which was nice. And the bottle looks good too :)

From a 300 ml. bottle served cold at Tachibana in McLean. Absolutely crystal clear. Flavors of melon. Delicate and wonderful.

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2013 This was a tasting of Blue Label Mu 青乃無, made in Hyogo. Crystal clear. Sweet, fruity, mellow and round sake, with peaches and melon in the nose and a dry, peppery, spicy finish. Huge, rich, flavor--she told me it was dry, but that was the finish, big sweet, fruity lusciousness up until then. Great full body. Good stuff.
