Ever so slightly sweet with vanilla notes, and overall makes a nice sipper, particularly for a relatively inexpensive American-made sake. Personally prefer it at room temp to just a bit chilled, and accompanied with an occasional lick of sea salt. A good value, though take care, as that 30 Proof goes down perhaps a little 'too' easily (lol)!

I did not request this. The store made a mistake.

I thought it was actually kind of bland, and even though it was suggested to be served warm, I thought that was even worse.

It was not available, was substituted with a much smaller size at the same price, the picture is wrong and the liquor store was ignoring the order until I called them. The driver also ignored the note to call me upon arrival

I ordered this for my 95-year-old father, who is locked down in his apartment. He has a glass of sake every night & was all out. It's his favorite brand & getting it made his day.

Delish! Smooth and flavorful. Why do reviews have to be 50 characters long?
The one star review shown here just says "not enough alcohol." Sake is not a spirit. It's a rice wine so don't expect it to be like vodka. Sho Chiku Bai is a decent, smooth, semi-dry Junmai sake at a reasonable price. Very drinkable.
