Bottle at home late on Sunday upping the honjozo ticks. Handsome bottle. Pour is sight tinged water. Nose is light pear and some forest floor. Tastes of pear, pine nuts, pine needle, and alcohol. Watery palate but that’s to style mostly. Some alcohol on finish. Pretty nice actually. Tonkun (1296) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 31, 2013
Bottle. Clear light yellow pour. floral, nuts, alcohol, rice and washi. very light and waterly throughout the mouth. Very simple and one dementional. slight bitter and acidic finish. Not bad but a typical honjozo, left best for use to cook food. jkwalking05 (4740) - Arlington, Texas, USA - AUG 7, 2009

Had on ice at dinner the other night. Clear pour with weak legs. Nose is boozey and rice like with hardly any other flavors. Mouth feel is dry and a bit grainy. I can tell that this is not a high quality sake but the taste is decent and gets the job done. Warming finish.
