j12601 (13099) - 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.

alexsdad06 (10803) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - AUG 6, 2012
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.

jredmond (8643) - New York, New York, USA - JUL 27, 2014
Saki Flight sampled at Sakegura with Linh and Zahra. Clear body with light cloudy haze. Aroma is fresh fruit - peaches, strawberries and melon. Alcohol on the nose as well, but not as aggressive as some of the other sakes we tried along side this one. Flavors include rice wine, vanilla, wonderful combination of fruit and alcohol. This sake seemed to be a bit more delicate with the fruit character and alcohol playing together well.

BMan1113VR (7929) - 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!

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.
