  • ヰリアム4.5/5 Wow! Very good! Bright and flavourful with great acidity. Green apple, honeydew melon, blueberry, walnut, butterscotch, stone. Big green apple flavour. Slightly sweet, slightly tangy, smooth savoury finish. Clean and fresh throughout. I love saké with these big fruity flavours like this, and the hint of acidity is really nice! Delicious!

  • ヰリアム4.25/5 Pretty nice stuff! Clean, delicate, smooth. Yellow apple, coconut, chamomile, honey, almond. It’s pretty light yet has a syrupy smooth texture. Sweet, but lightly so. Faint acidity. A bit of bitterness which is light and round and not unpleasant. Quietly strong. Dry nutty finish. Enjoying this pretty well, pretty delicate but it’s a gentle easy sip with some complexity.

  • ヰリアム4.25/5 Yum, delicious nigori! So smooth and creamy! Soy milk, cream, honeydew melon, honey, peanut, ginger. Sweet but pleasantly on the lighter side. So milky! It really tastes like alcoholic soy milk or something. It’s delicate and smooth but has a pleasant nutty bitterness and a good balance. Can’t find much information on this brand online, but it doesn’t say it’s junmai, but either way it’s delicious!

  • ヰリアム3.75/5 Not half bad, crisp and clean with a robust savoury finish. Papaya, Asian pear, bitter honey, almond, biscuit. Initial light fruits give way to a nutty almost meaty finish. Pretty dry but some light sweetness to start. Some bitterness but not too strong. It’s pretty solid but it’s not my favourite, could be a bit brighter and smoother. But it’s tasty! Got this in a gift-set with two branded ochoko for the same price as just buying the bottle on its own!

  • ヰリアム4/5 Really wasn’t expecting much from this at all, but it’s not half bad! Yellow apple, white chocolate, coconut, almond, stone. Pretty simple but it’s fresh and crisp with a light creaminess and a faint acidity. Very light body, a bit watery but that just makes it more refreshing. A slight bitterness but very light and brief. Picked this up cuz I thought it looked fun and it was fairly cheap, but it’s genuinely pretty tasty! Just wish there was more information about the brewery.

  • ヰリアム4/5 Simple yet pleasant. Cornbread, butter, toasted pecan, mushroom, stone. Pretty dry, a mere whisper of sweetness initially that quickly fades. It says it’s a +3 but it tastes much drier to me. No acidity. Interestingly savoury and nutty but nice and smooth. Probably would go perfectly with some salty snacks but I’m just having it on its own.

  • ヰリアム4.25/5 Yum! Juicy and delicious! Great tangerine flavour! There’s a nice medium acidity with a medium-high sweetness. Real nice and smooth, so juicy and you’d hardly know there’s alcohol in it! It is indeed quite pulpy, big chunks like a tangerine was squeezed right into it. I was surprised something shelf-stable at room temperature could contain such juicy chewy pulp chunks that burst enjoyably between the teeth. A textural delight!

  • ヰリアム4+/5 Very fun, smooth and citrusy with a light frizzante fizz. Grapefruit, guava, honey, lemongrass, celery, almond extract, coconut cream. Interesting mix of fruity and vegetal notes with a pervasive yet well-rounded background bitterness. Slightly sweet, medium acidity, gentle creaminess. Great well chilled as an accompaniment to a sushi feast!

  • ヰリアム3.75+/5 Oof: big, bold, strong, thick, and super chunky! White chocolate, raw almond, ginger, anise, graphite. It’s rich and creamy but at 21% it gives you a pretty intense smack in the face. When I first opened it it was much too strong, after a breathe it’s better but still has a fairly strong alcoholy burn, maybe it will continue to dissipate. Sweet but not too sweet. Full of chewy rice chunks, which I kinda like. It’s good but a little too strong for me, I can only drink small sips.

  • ヰリアム4.25+/5 Very interesting and uniquely tasty! Toasted marshmallow, sweet corn, butter biscuit, honey-roasted pecan, blueberry, toasted coconut. Hard to explain quite what it tastes like, there are some flavours which might sound less refined, but here they are taken to exquisitely delicious new heights. Lots of crisp nutty notes. Light sweetness, almost no acidity. Let it breathe a little and it’s so smooth! Never had a saké that tastes quite like this before!

  • ヰリアム4.5/5 Yum! Real crisp and fruity and lightly sweet with a smooth finish. Yellow apple, banana, pineapple, blueberry, almond paste, chamomile, coconut water, stone. Smells great! A rich tropical mélange with a pleasant initial light acidity and sweetness which fade to a dry and slightly creamy finish with a light bitter aftertaste. After breathing a little it’s super smooth and I like it even more! Complex and tasty, confident but also delicate. Real nice!

  • ヰリアム4.25/5 Very nice, crisp and flavourful. Pear, honeydew melon, cream, honey, raw almond, stone. Like our wandering poet, it takes us on a pleasant journey (I assume his wanderings were pleasant). A slight initial pear acidity followed but a rich creamy honeydew through the middle, with a dry and nutty finish. There’s a little bit of a bitter aftertaste but it’s not too strong. It’s fairly light but there’s some strength to it still. Enjoying this pretty nicely!

  • ヰリアム3.75/5 Strong and dry, yet pretty smooth. Raw almond, cantaloupe, whiskey, bitter honey. Really strong, packs quite an alcoholy punch, yet it manages to have a smooth texture and some light pleasant flavours. There’s a gentle hint of sweetness initially but it goes very dry very fast. Very clean taste. For me I think this is maybe a little too dry but it’s interesting to try a well made +10. I will try pairing with some food and see how that is.

  • ヰリアム4.25/5 Simple and clean, smooth and tasty. Yellow apple, honeydew melon, candied almond, coconut milk, white chocolate, stone. Little hint of acidity, medium-low sweetness. Clean background bitterness, well restrained but adds some interesting maturity. A whisper of creaminess near the finish. This one is subtler than some, but quite enjoyable and well balanced.

  • ヰリアム4+/5 Big flavourful JDG, strong, bold, fruity, and sweet. Blueberry, banana, papaya, ginger, sugarcane, juniper. Love the light fruit flavours. Low acidity, medium sweetness, a bit of light bitterness. There’s a strength to it that doesn’t quite feel like bitterness, it’s more of an alcoholy burn. Can’t quite call it “smooth” but it is very clean. Just gives you a little slap in the face. Maybe it’ll smooth out a bit as it breathes. Very interesting!

  • ヰリアム4.25/5 Wow, pretty impressed with this, clean and smooth with some wonderful gentle woody notes. Asian pear, cantaloupe, raw sugar, juniper, forest leaves, pine. First time trying a taruzake, didn’t know what to expect, thought it might be pretty strong. Instead it’s clean and slightly fruity, there’s a light bitterness that creeps up but never gets too strong and a smooth finish. Pinch of sweetness. The woody notes from the cedar add a delicate perfume to the background. Really interesting!

  • ヰリアム4.25+/5 Another great California saké, crisp and light and smooth and refreshing. Honeydew melon, yellow apple, almond, coconut cream, burnt sugar. Real light body, one of the lightest sakés I’ve had. Clean crisp flavours that feel bright despite the low acidity. A little bit of alcoholvour but very light. It’s very refreshing with a light and smooth background creaminess. Made using water from California’s Sierra Mountains, another great brew from Sho Chiku Bai USA!

  • ヰリアム4/5 Fairly sweet with some light fruity flavours and a powerful finish. Blueberry, lychee, papaya, butterscotch, sweet basil, juniper, stone, graphite. It’s pretty interesting, fairly complex flavours, nice fruitiness, but there’s some flavours in there that aren’t my favourite. It gets pretty strong towards the end, with a bitter graphity aftertaste. If this were more bright and delicate I would love it, but instead it’s quite strong and alcoholy. Still, overall enjoyable!

  • ヰリアム4+/5 Light, clean, and pretty smooth. Walnut, butterscotch, milk, salt, dried leaves. It’s very dry, just a hint of sweetness but I think it’s just a trick from the caramelly flavour. It’s pretty smooth but there’s a bit of bitterness which gets a little strong towards the end before backing off. Almost no acidity, a light creaminess. At first it has a little sharpness, but after breathing a bit it’s much smoother and pretty nice, though I think a little more sweetness would improve.

  • ヰリアム4.5+/5 Smooth and delicious and pleasantly sweet. White chocolate, cream, honey, honeydew melon, chamomile, stone. More like “Creamy Moon”! Nice confident sweetness, but doesn’t feel at all cloying. Really smooth and creamy. Almost no acidity. There’s some earthy background bitterness that’s balanced out well by the sweetness, don’t feel too strong, yet there’s a gentle power to it. Pleasant dry finish. Really enjoyable, one of the best sakés I’ve had so far!
