JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 31, 2010
300ml bottle. Clear, but with a slight yellow tint. No legs. Aroma is a melony sweet alcohol. Flavor follows with more fruit. Body is slightly thick and finishes crisp. Paired with with some pear, which was nice. And the bottle looks good too :)

Nice aroma but delivers much more taste and has a nice thick palate. Taste is not as sweet as others.

arminjewell (9665) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - APR 22, 2015
Pour out of bottle, clear pour with no head, aroma is nice white wine, grape, melon, nutty notes into a bit of peach, pear, some slight vanilla. Taste was a mix of tart grain, vanilla, honey into a bit of melon, slight peach, hints of white fruits into a bit of sugar, finishing sweet, slightly acidic. Nice.

From a 300 ml. bottle served cold at Tachibana in McLean. Absolutely crystal clear. Flavors of melon. Delicate and wonderful.

The best sake I’ve ever had. The bottle is a little cheesy art wise but I’ve had sake 10x as expensive but hats off this is it. Thanks. Perfect.

Pours a slightly yellow tinted color. Nice legs. Very soft a supple mouthfeel. Spicy finish. Notes of honey dew, pepper, grass, candy, and rattan. Nice

KyotoLefty (10264) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAY 25, 2011
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2013 This was a tasting of Blue Label Mu 青乃無, made in Hyogo. Crystal clear. Sweet, fruity, mellow and round sake, with peaches and melon in the nose and a dry, peppery, spicy finish. Huge, rich, flavor--she told me it was dry, but that was the finish, big sweet, fruity lusciousness up until then. Great full body. Good stuff.
