No sake cups, so I made do with a handmade tea cup, for those who know their wabi from their sabi. Pale yellow white. Clean, yeasty nose. Dry, melon fruity with minerality and a hint of tangerine peel, litchi and spice. Simple, nuanced.

Rich and straightforward, sweet, a bit cumbersome and frankly boring. It'll do in a pinch tho

Melon and fruity. Felt a little unbalanced on the palate. It was round and rich but the alcohol had some bite

not that I'm terribly well-versed in sake but this one was really good, compared to the house sake I usually get. I'd attempt to note the flavours but I don't really know what I'm doing here lol

Fruity aroma, tropical. Light and dry. Spicy on the back. Medium finish.

Subtle funky aroma. Taste like it smells. Very subtle funkiness but very enjoyable. Can’t believe there’s alcohol in this, it’s so smooth. Great mouthfeel. $12/bottle is fair.
