Description: The aroma of this Daiginjo is like a basket filled with ripe, dripping fruit including melon, berries, pear and a hint of cotton candy. This Shizuku-style sake is an adventure into the realms of expansive flavor that meets up with an incredible smoothness. A silky soft fluid that touches on a mineral sweetness and yet dances dry in the finish. The nose and flavor impression spell sweet but this expansive Daiginjo drinks dry and clean; and keep a look out for faint caramel and anise undertones. In street vernacular this deeply flavored brew drinks "like butter!"
