3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Golden-straw colour. Nice legs. Sort of a bland starchy nose. Shaoxing wine with a woody, balsamy aftertaste. Oxidized starchy notes, hints of wood and alcohol. This is one strange brew.

(300ml bottle) Purchased at JustWines in Langford for $34. Clear deep yellow body. Nose of alcohol, bandaid and quality whiskey. I think I like this sake so much more because there isn’t that normal sake aroma of potato or root vegetable. Sweet apple front, strong whiskey melds into a very distinct maple finish. This stuff is wonderful... and super expensive.
