Another one from the Slow Food Japan 2009 selection, this sake from Hokkaido has a Nihonshudo of +7 so should be bone dry (+ve is dry, -ve is sweet) and uses Gohyakumangoku (五百万石) rice polished down to 60%.

It has a light sake smell and is a clear slightly viscous sake. You can see clear swirls moving around in the glass.

The Sengokubasho nihonshu has a thick feel to it, almost syrupy and quite a strong alcoholic taste (it's 16.5% abv).

The overwhelming taste is alcohol, like a neat vodka.

And, yes, it was pretty dry.
