Strong plum flavor, almost too strong but still good. — 5 days ago
This is the unpasteurized version “Nama”. Very rich and creamy. — a month ago
Merengue and lemon type pie haze trending toward gelèe. Top reflects the yellow highlights between large bubbles. Paul Klee meets the amoebae lacing. Honeycomb wax, meyer lemon, fruitcake pineapple, clean, fresh sliced white grapefruit, somehow sweet. Sunflower petals, corn flower, citrus flower, lime zest. Perfect mouthfeel has a tongue coating lemon marshmallow effect, with creamy citrus dichotomy, tangerine reduction of all its elements, lemon curd, grapefruit oil liqueur-ized, touches of citrus fruits shimmer into existence here then dim, to flare elsewhere on the palate. Clementine, navel orange, tangerine, kumquat, etc.; flashes. Bee pollen from citrus grove bees. Peach flower. Really decadent in its jewelry, but with an ivory milk-ness or banana smoothie as its catalyst. Somehow a cloudy sake in other ways, sweet and juicy, but balanced by the floral fang. .

Exquisite!!! So many sakes that make it to the USA have the same rice pudding/banana profile, to say nothing of the really lower quality ones that taste like low proof diluted vodka, but this one is truly a cut above. I don’t often give ratings above 90 points, but this is so perfectly balanced with the nice, sweet flavors that I appreciate in a sake. “Balance” is the word that keeps coming to me as I drink this. As far as specific notes, on the nose, whipped cream, cashew, just a little bit of bubble gum and flowers, and on the palette, yes, it has the rice pudding note, but with honeydew melon, and most of the notes on the nose coming through. I paired this with an Italian pasta dish, and it worked perfectly, but I can also imagine this working well desserts like Victoria sponge cake or cream brûlée. — 18 days ago
One of my favorite very smooth, I feel it’s as good as most expensive Japanese labels — 4 months ago
