3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Carafe at Sakagura. Deep tawny colour. The aroma is full of toasted nuts, hazelnuts and some light savoury soy like character. A lovely chewiness. A little bit of meaty/porcini mushroom sort of character. A touch of light salty character. A bit of light toasted flavour. A little bit of heat and some light ethanol in addition to a parmesan-like sweetness. Very interesting.

Glass at Sakagura. Pours a clear tawny brown. Smells of mushrooms, wood, caramel. Caramel, age. Viscous and creamy. Warm vegetal notes. Caramel and more age. Mushrooms again. Very interesting, lingering warmth and old caramel. Sort of like a mushroom dessert.

Gift from SJ. Almost clear pour. Taste of rice, maple, nuts and fruit.
Aroma of fruit. This may of have been the best one I’ve tasted or I am just getting a feel for SAKE!

Tasting at Yespr
Amber color. Smelly aroma of vegetables, plastic and phenol. It’s quite sweet, with rice flavor, light fruitness, some phenols. Burning final, with some oxidisation. Interesting.

Golden colour, no head. Aroma and flavour is raisins, alcohol some boiled sweet rice as well as some mild wooden notes. A rather different sake from all I’ve had before. Sweet, yet very balanced.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
This sake is a revelation. Aroma is a precisely mixed bananas and clean tropical fruit character you get with many premium sakes mixed with a Madeira-like dried fruits and nuts. Flavor is ethereal with a delightful sweetness that never overpowers it. Virtually no trace of the high ABV, save a slight warming of the throat. Amazing stuff.
