3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Slightly yellow tinge in the tiny ceramic cup. Smell is a bit alcoholic, but more warming than solventy. There’s a delicate flavor with a bit of plum brandy, but it’s mostly washed down by the alcohol.

Clear pour. Subtle, dry aroma of rice and alcohol, mostly alcohol. A bit sweet with a minor kick at the end

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Not really a sake fan. This is pretty sweet, vodka-like honeyness. Not better than a good beer, but nothing bad. Sake seems to lack depth.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
From a760 ml bottle. The sake poured a pale yellow-golden color. The aroma was grass, rice, lemongrass and pronounced alcohol. Dryish with strong notes of rice, lemongrass and vodka. There was a faint undertone of vanilla that popped up for a minute and was then drowned in lemongrass and rice. Long tangy lemongrass finish. Fairly full bodied and oily texture. Ok.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
My first sake, from a 720ml bottle. Rice aroma, clear, colorless pour, tastes of rice and alcohol. Fairly sweet, but good. (Not sure how to rate it; going middle-of-the-road for the time being.)

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
720 ml bottle. Pours clear and looks like water or vodka. Taste is of alcohol and is faintly of rice. A little sweet and the body is a little oiley. Good cold or warm. Reminds me of rubbing alcohol and vodka. Easy to drink and not half bad, but I was expecting a little more. Seems like a sake that could be used when doing shots.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A powerful sake with a heavy flavor of rice. The palate is semi thick with a long finish. mild wood and dry flavor make this a treat to drink.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Nothing about this Sake is subtle. The aroma has lots of rice, alcohol, grass, and wood. The appearance is virtually crystal clear. The flavor is like the aroma with a short burst followed by a dry, herbal finish. The palate is slightly oily. Overall it’s interesting but could be better.
