4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Part of a flight at Temple bar in Minneapolis. Absolutely incredible sake. Unfiltered so this sake had a milky white color with plenty of rice particles floating about. Almost thickenough to drink with a fork. Citrus and cocunut on the nose with a dry body. Sweet rice and light citrus and cocoanut flavors in the body.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Sampled at The Cellar’s Wine & Spirits wine tasting. A terrific unfiltered sake that has a chalky white appearance. When swirling beverage in glass, thick rice particles stick to glass edge. Aroma of hard fruit (sweet apple/pear) light citrus and a hint of coconut and steamed medium grain rice. Taste is strong alcohol, more steamed rice and sweet pear. Long lasting alcohol finish. Don’t even think of serving this warm. This is a chiling sake!

what to do when when i can’t sleep, can’t stand the talking heads on the tv right now, can’t stand a lot of things really. so i think it is time for a nice sake, that should go well with my sausage and eggs this morning. thick milky white body, that is nice and gritty, hell maybe i should cook some grits too, grits is good afterall. nah, i’ll hit the grits tomorrow when i can’t sleep, so i have that going for me. sweet herbal, not quite mint aroma with a nice boozey scent. oh yeah this is tasty light sweet fruit and some banana, grape nots a bit of popsicle stick and a lingering light nutty taste. great mouthfeel, that i like from the unfiltered ones, the alcohol is well blended in this. a bit of a hubba bubba flavor lingers in there that detracts a bit but this woill still be a repeat purchase.

Pours a very cloudy, grainy off white after being mixed up. Smells of vanilla, rice, aome sweet hints, boozy. Tastes grainy and sweet and fruity with a nice vanilla bite on the finish. I’m really digging Nigori sake!

Great presentation with the pink bottle. Pours cloudy and leaves a thick residue on the glass. I really like the appearance and palate. Mild fruit and subdued alcohol. Quite smooth, and a little sweet. I’m not sure how to best rate sake yet, but this is my favorite so far.

This bottled sake from a restaurant poured no and left behind a hazy with fine particulate white colored body and a lacing with particulate in it. The smooth aroma was vinous alcohol. The semi-thick thick flavor contained notes of medium vinous rice. Very different and one I would like to have again.

Aroma that was both floral and tropical. Rice pudding. Some mustiness. Pours milky white with good legs and lots of particulate sticking to the side of the glass. Tart on the palate with a hint of tropical fruit. Dry. Full bodied and very creamy.

Chilled pink bottle from Grapes of Mirth. Poured cloudy white color with sticky particle legs. Moderate coconut, candy almonds and melons aroma. Medium body with a creamy unfiltered texture. Medium pineapple, vanilla and coconut rice flavor with a medium creamy sweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations were met with a complex sake
