4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Selected this bottle at a Japanese store this morning and literally didn’t know what to expect... It pours out like skimmed milk (actually I hate that milk and prefer the full fat version, but probably every woman knows the look of skimmed milk): Cloudy light white colour, thin body. The nose was of flowers, peaches and Sake. Taste of eggwhite, pineapple, berries, flowers, rice and green fruits. Very dry finish. Enjoyed it a lot - one of the best Sakes ever!

It is really impossible to find a huge surprise like this one. Really. Where would you start ? That huge look of the bottle ? That huge look of the sake itself (mixture of milk and...soda...) ? Or maybe with that balanced aroma of ripe fruits and a huge ananas as a topping. Hard to explain. Just try. And be knocked out. Thumbs up. Definitely.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
D’un blanc opaque, comme du lait écrémé, qui forme des bulles lorsqu’on le verse et qui disparaissent aussitôt. Ça sent l’alcool fermenté, le riz froid avec des vapeurs d’eucalyptus, très faiblement et pas constamment. Le goût est semblable. Quelques pics alcoolisés qui ne sont pas sans rappeler certaines eaux-de-vie en provenance des pays nordiques; de l’alcool "blanc", agrémenté d’une saveur de pastille blanche, d’où son côté sucré et médicinal. Une texture légèrement crémeuse et soyeuse qui fait bien passer le tout, alors que l’alcool est perçu encore longtemps après la gorgée. (656-270513)

1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
(Bottle said to shake well before serving, due to intended sediment). Opaque off white, like a faintly yellow milk. Aroma is of dry rice grain, some sort of sweet berry, and raw plastic. Flavor has a bit of coconut milk and honey tones, with a faint chalkiness, both in texture and in flavor. Mouthfeel is too chalky and thick, like watered down yogurt. Just a weird drink all around.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
My bottle of this sake poured a few tiny clear bubbles that quickly disappeared and left behind a milky/cloudy body with some fine floaties in it. The aroma was a nice Nigori mellow mildly musty and soft polished rice. The creamy milky mouth feel was mellow at the start and finished with a stronger vinous alcohol aftertaste. The flavor was dull at first and stayed mellow throughout until the finish where the alcohol comes through. Quaffable and mellow, this Sake is an easy drink and I would recommend it for new Sake drinkers.

From a pretty neat looking 300 ml bottle. Pours a hazy milk white. Taste is of rice, fruit and a touch of warming alcohol. Has a floral and rice aroma. The body is creamy, a bit coarse and coats the mouth. Very easy to drink and quite enjoyable. Well worth having again.
