Numenor (871) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - AUG 12, 2006
A very pale yellow body with an aroma of stale rice and some light sweets. Taste is very interesting, almost like a chocolate rice pudding. Sweet ending.

This a good Daiginjo sake. Not alot of flavor some melon but is drinkable. Finishes very clean and dry. Very little hint of the 15% alcohol.

Buono ma un po meno di altri!

taunusmies (331) - FINLAND - APR 19, 2007
Clear, slightly yellow colour. Smooth mouthfeel but with a little bite of alcohol. As fridge cold, taste was sweet with rice and some fruity elements. A bit sour aftertaste.

starfireming (309) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - SEP 3, 2006
Clear pale yellow-green. Dry, sweet citrus aroma that’s simply delectable. Definitely some watermelon. Alcohol is not terrible for a sake, a kick at the end but overall easy-going, sweet and yummy.

Sombeast (151) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 14, 2007
Bottle courtesy of OFortuna. First sake rating. Crystal clear with just a hair of yellow hue. Aroma difficult to describe, perhaps light rice mold, yet not unpleasant. Mild flavor unlike the aroma. Smooth and slick on the tongue. Medium bodied, not quite dry. A little alcohol warming. Slightly sour, dry finish.

Very affordable but not the best check for your first daiginjos. This s the current emperors choice but but buy a good bottle of a smaller brewer to pop your daiginjo cherry pardon the crude analogy.

Fruity tones but too boozy for us. There was a hint of sweet tart flavor which was nice but overall, too sharp.
