At Wudon Noodle Bar in Glasgow. Served hot. Clear. Smell is milky and almost possety. Tastes strong and lightly bittersweet with a backdrop of gardenia. Not bad but certainly not eye popping. Not that I’m an expert but tastes a bit on the artificial side.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
The aroma is slightly fruity, flowers. Appearance is clear, like water. The flavor is a tad sweet for something with dry in the name,a bit fruity, melon, pear. The finish is a little fruity, mostly dry. Medium, perhaps a bit thin i body. I actually found it to be a bit refreshing, and the alcohol not at all noticeable. Of course, i don’t drink a lot of sake, so that has to factor into this rating.
