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.
