300 ml bottle from a prefecture local sake series. Nice fruity nose, big fruit, citrus, mango, melon, a bit of spice. Clear, light. Sweet rice flavor, koji coming through, vanilla, apples, banana and peach, alcohol heat. smooth and full. Nice stuff. Nothing mind-blowiing, but for ¥500 or so, a treat.

Not a bad one. Especially when it comes to its look. Aroma is a bit too much in the pineapple area with a strange pepper ending. Bit too sweet and bit poor in the rice aroma. But still high quality.

Pours out of the bottle in a clear watery-vanilla colour with smooth to medium body. Aroma of citrus and rice - nice. Taste of citrus, pineapple, mango, straw and flowers - very surprising. Flowery finish with some light acid hints. Nice one but not extraordinary.

Pours crystal clear; the viscous body leaves nice legs behind. The nose includes a rather muted yet pleasant ginjoko; reminiscent of anise and bright fruit notes. While the anise notes resonate on the palate, pepperiness from the alcohol kicks in on the semi-sweet mid-palate; the faint acidity is subtly fresh. The finish is very clean; even at room temperature, the bitterness is very weak. When served chilled, it should be gone without a trace. The mouthfeel is viscous and the body nice and full. Recommended.

Bottled@SBWF2013. Water colour. Aroma is a byunch of citrusy notes along with some hayish and zesty notes as well. Slight touch of alcohol. Flavour is zesty, hayish, herbal, some slight alcohol as well as mild resiny notes. Nicely balanced, with the alcohol giving it a slight kick.

Ginrei Gassan Tokubetsu Junmai Sake
Cup from Isetan Kyoto. Interesting nose, of caramel, vanilla, condensed milk, rice candy. Flavor similar, but with a medicinal streak as well. Strange—lots of creamy sweetness. Quite fruity as well, like baked apple maybe, and sweet orange. Somewhat hot finish, lightly spicy. Weird cream and fruit flavor isn’t bad, but it is a bit shocking.

Bottle shared with MichaelBruch and Cassio. Sake is very light and softly weak in taste, much more than flavoured water than sake. Very flowery notes.
