3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
[180 ml. bottle][Purchased @ Carrefour][Produced on 28/07/2016 - bottle says it like that][14.5 % ABV according to bottle] Totally clear, looks like slightly hazy vodka. Nose is sweat grainy white spirit alcohol, sweet rice & sweat, sugar, cooked rice.Taste is odd candied sweet sugar rice, white sugar, cooked rice candy, overly sweet candy sugar rice, overly sweet rice with sweat, faint candy & some sugar. Body is lightly sweet, sugar, candied rice. I can manage but it is far from an exciting sake given my limited experience. My experience with sake is very limited & I am fairly certain that I cannot get the good stuff. At least it is appearantly a style tick.Nice classical Japanese label.

Clear, no head. Aromas of vermouth, green skin plums and herbs. Flavours similar. I’m not an expert on sake (yet), but fragrant and easy drinking.

Bottle. Clear pour with no head. Sweeter rice-like notes, faint hints of booze, and some light coconut-like fruit notes. Actually pretty good.
