|Taste||This is not a standard “clean” daiginjo SAKE, but a junmai daiginjo with a deep rice flavor, where the rice grains have been well liquified during the fermentation process. Complex flavors reveal themselves one after the other in a manner that is typical of iwai rice, which readily dissolves into the fermentation mash. While this SAKE dons a spirited, fruity ginjo aroma, its rice flavor goes down gently and smoothly.|
