A great sake that drinks well both warm and chilled. Excellent ricey flavor. Nice touch of earthy complexity with hint of herb on finish.

[180 ml. bottle][Purchased @ Carrefour][Produced on 28/07/2016 - bottle says it like that][14.5 % ABV according to bottle] Totally clear, looks like slightly hazy vodka. Nose is sweat grainy white spirit alcohol, sweet rice & sweat, sugar, cooked rice.Taste is odd candied sweet sugar rice, white sugar, cooked rice candy, overly sweet candy sugar rice, overly sweet rice with sweat, faint candy & some sugar. Body is lightly sweet, sugar, candied rice. I can manage but it is far from an exciting sake given my limited experience. My experience with sake is very limited & I am fairly certain that I cannot get the good stuff. At least it is appearantly a style tick.Nice classical Japanese label.

Bottle thanks to fonefan. No color, no head, but thats what you an expect. Rice aroma and flavor, coconuts, boozy, fruity notes. A bit hard to rate this but it actually was quite ok.

Clear, no head. Aromas of vermouth, green skin plums and herbs. Flavours similar. I’m not an expert on sake (yet), but fragrant and easy drinking.
