    Late 1990s bottle. ¥500 @ Sake Museum.

    Appearance: Medium golden amber.

    Nose: Pineapple, citrus, oak, malt sugar, cinnamon, spices.

    Palate: Malt, cookies, oak, spice, tannin.

    Finish: Peppery, tannic wood, rather bitter.

    With Water: Sweeter and milder. Gets a bit weak and insipid though.

    Overall: Mild and rather spiky in its sprits. Not really impressed but ok.
