3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This has a nice nose as well, rich citrus fruits, and some fresh orchids. Almost picking up some ripe red fruits on the palate, as well as a little bit of spice. This is definitely more elegant than others I have tried. Great acidity, and extremely smooth mouthfeel. Very well done!

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours clear with just a hint of gold. Sweet flower, berrys, and some herb I cannot pinpoint. Really nice. Taste is smooth and creamy, slight hint of fruit sweetness maybe a little vanilla. Lots of flavor, very subtle and elegant. Very good.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Label says 16% ABV. Pours a crystal clear yellowish tint that could pass for a very light Sauvignon Blanc. A swirl of the still body reveals syrupy legs that droop slowly down the glass. The aroma is very creamy and sweet, with notes of rice pudding, koji, and lightly fumy limoncello. There is also a strong floral presence that lends a very calming effect. The incredibly smooth, silky body distributes creamy lemon chiffon flavors evenly across the tongue. Vanilla makes its presence known, and fits perfectly into the fold. Finishes short and sweet. This is an excellent sake. Very enjoyable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This pretty blue bottled sake from a bottle shop poured a small sized head of frothy medium sized clear colored bubbles that were quickly diminishing and left behind a clear yet yellow hued body. The smooth aroma had a slight licorice note. The semi-thick mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish with a mild alcohol burn. The flavor contained notes of alcohol and licorice. Delicious and one I would certainly buy again.

Very pale yellow color. Tall thin legs.Coconut start in the aroma with plums, and mild juniper berries. Mild and thicker fell. Mild vanilla start, with a very gentle float across the palate. Middle has a touch of licorice and plum. Alcohol is slightly noticeable in both the aroma and the warmth in the end. quite smooth and enjoyable all around.

Wow, this aroma is amazing. I could sit and sniff this for a long time and be completely pleased without even drinking it. Sage, orchids, rose petals and rosewater. The taste is very clean and polished, extremely well balanced. Wonderful.
