A Mes rate. At Chris O’s pre GBBF.
superb nose. Some booziness showing through but the fruity almost juniper character is lovely. Slightly floral in the mouth. Excellent fruity finish. Really tasty.

DaSilky1 (2606) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 23, 2011
Slightly tainted clear pour. Cantelope in the nose with a little ricey kick around the edges, flavors again of sweet melon and ricey alcohol...alcoholic, sweet, but with a melony booziness to it that brings it to refinement. Not too shabby really.

j12601 (6585) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - AUG 25, 2010
Bottle at the Grand Tasting during RBSG courtesy of KyotoLefty. Pours a water clear color. Sweet juicy fruit aromas, and isopropyl. Sweet and lightly boozy, slowly warms into a rather big booze note, but falls away quickly. Soft spice on the finish. Smooth in spite of the booze spikes.

CanIHave4Beers (2897) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - AUG 17, 2010
Shared (likely by kyotolefty) at the RBSG grand tasting. Pours clear and looks a bit like water. The aroma is complex and interesting with some pear and black licorice along with a nice booziness. The flavor is spicy and fruity with some rice and a good warming booziness.

BMan1113VR (7786) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUN 14, 2010
UPDATED: JAN 19, 2012 Sample from a 720ml bottle. Pours with a clear body with strong legs. Aroma is very nice. Quite sweet and fruity with peaches, strawberries, jasmine, ginger and orange blossoms. Taste is sweet, stone fruit, light ginger. Very low level of koji presences. Nice and thick body with absolutely no hint to the abv. Velvety mouthfeel. A pretty awesome Diaginjo.
Have had several times since. Great, clean, complex and flavorful daiginjo. Well hidden alcohol and crisp. Delicious!
