This bottled Sake from rbsg #49 poured a head of frothy fine to medium sized clear colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a and a oily lacing. The aroma was polished rice and mild vinous. . The strong flavor contained notes of polished rice rice vinous and alcohol. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

I have a 300ml bottle of dassai 23 waiting for a special occasion so I won’t compare the two but- I’ve had a handful of daiginjos now- this imo is better than gekkikan horin, pure dusk, and in general just about as good as it gets. Also incredible price it’s fantastic.

Sampled at RBSG ’10 thanks to kyotolefty. Pours clear like water. Nose is sweet fruity, anise, florals with some alcohol. Flavors are same; sweet, fruity, anise and spikes of alcohol. This was much different than any other sake I had ever tried.

brokensail (16057) - Dublin, California, USA - JUL 27, 2012
Pours clear with no head and some nice legs. Smells very sweet, fruity, and tropical. Pineapple, coconut, white grape, and rice. Flavor has an interesting anise flavor to go along with the fruit. A little bit boozy, but still drinkable. Not quite as much on the tropical note, but there is a hint of coconut and pineapple to it.
