This is a new one on me. Enjoyable, but lacks the depth I usually enjoy in these beers. — 7 days ago

Konteki

Pearls of Simplicity Junmai Daiginjo Sake

This was a lovely smooth sake served chilled. Leng enough ago that I can't speak to specifics, but I know at the time I was using this for favorites. — 3 years ago

Heiwa Shuzou

Kid Junmai Ginjo Koji

I thought the nose smelled like sesame oil with sweet notes of apples, pears, and steamed rice. On the other hand, my partner thought it smelled like damp laundry. I get where she's coming from, especially when you think about dried-out detergent, but that descriptor's just plain brutal. Safe to say she didn't like it at all. The palate's soft and fruity, medium-bodied, with a sweetish yet elegant finish. I liked it. Solid house pour during KK + R's after-party. From 1800ml bottles. — 21 days ago

Autumn Colors Concord 2018

Kido Winery Verdelet 2018 (Seibel 9110) Pale lemon with touch of grey or pink colour. Beautiful citrus and stone fruit aromas with wet stones. The weather might have struggled Akito with less sunlight hours, but as a result may have led to this elegant structure. Pure joy to taste this under 2,000JPY bottle. — a day ago

Whisky from the Barrel

Deep amber color. Pronounced aromas of honeycomb, barley, malt, toffee, and butterscotch. Luscious mouthfeel, hot, but very well balanced. Creme brûlée finish with considerable length. — 20 hours ago

Dewasansan Namagenshu Junmai Ginjo

Pears, pears subacid pome fruit. White grape, candy fruit esther, and cocoa! Serious hint of bittersweet chocolate aroma. Really beautiful body with round umami and a little residual sugar. — 11 hours ago

Sawaya Matsumoto Shu-Ha-Ri Kyoto Yamadanishiki

Sweet, bitter, salty, umami, acid. Basically just named all the essential components for a balanced dish, and that's just exactly what this is - the perfect food saké! Probably my most drank saké this year, and for good reason. Love it. — 6 days ago
