The top notes are much similar to Dassai Junmai Ginjou 45% but as it strikes the tounge and the palate, layers of fragrances open up. Soft, sweet scents of Cotton Candy, hints of Banana, Japanese pears. The mid palate gives a crisp, clean, dry taste. Very smooth, clear and refined sake. Excellent harmony of flavor and scent. Short, clean finish. Excellent overall well balance.
