3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from a sake shop in Saitama, 07/20/2013. Pours silvery clear. Aroma is sweet, with tart green apple and berries, clean rice finish. Taste is also sweet, green apple and crisp pear, tangy in the middle, toasted rice to balance, boozy heat lingering on the breath. Medium body, remains silky and not sticky. Well done, rich but not over the top with sweetness for something with 35% polish. Very nice.
