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.

BMan1113VR (7874) - 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!
