How can one describe perfection in a bottle? This stellar Daiginjo has a nose filled with white peach, apples, grapes and pear. If we used a “Sake Social Partner’s Top Recommendation” system this sake would carry that title. A very soft pear tonality pervades this deeply complex sake that drinks as easy as a “wet dream.” A full bodied sake wrapped in a delicate texture that drinks like poetry. A liquid once-in-a-lifetime sake for all fans of “rice wine.”

I purchased sake and a pair ceramic sake glasses for a Christmas present and recipient was jubilant in receiving the gift.
Nice sake to be tried chilled. Taste rice, smell rice and aftertaste again rice. Generally, this a rather full bodied sake with ample rice sweetness (though labelled as dry) to me.
