Kojima Sohonten Co. Ltd
Very pure ginjo aromas that consists predominantly of Melon & Nashi Pear. Juicy with good structure and body as expected from a Junmai Ginjo Genshu. It finished clean and dry.
You can feel its rich flavor with the fragrance and sweetness as if you were enjoying ripened fruits.

Fantastic value for money. Dry and fruity
Surprisingly good considering its price. A value for money sake for those who like it abit dry and sweet.
Re-purchase. Really like how easy to drink this is.

This often brings out more aroma, texture & finesse. The whisky equivalent terminology would be cask strength, but in the case of sake, the alcohol is not necessarily more noticeable. In the case of this Toko Junmai Ginjo Genshu, it was...making it great to pair with chicken kaarage!
