Sort of a Dassai 23 meets a Mu "Nothingness", very nice light fruity flavors- pineapple, melon, but just that amazing Mu type of after taste, no alcohol burn but as the other user said fruitier than SMV would indicate.
Amazing, well worth the $$$

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
720 ml Bottle from Isetan in Kyoto. Served chilled. Big tropical fruit nose, jungle flowers, huge nose. Pear, papaya, wow. Clear, oily, a bit thick. Very sweet and fruity, tropical for sure, spicy and flowery, vanilla. Crazy fruitiness. Extremely delicious and luxurious, though a bit too sweet, like candy. The spicy fruit flavor is like no sake I have ever tried. Really over the top. The prickly peppery finish tried to balance but can’t. Still, great stuff. Doesn’t seem to fit the SMV and Acidity ratings, though. Very sweet, and little acidity felt.
