Very easy to drink
Appearance: Clear, colourless appearance with high viscosity. Nose: Melon, pencil shavings, cedar, resin, oak, banana, yoghurt, fresh milk, custard. Palate: Melon, pencil shavings, cedar, resin, oak, banana, pear, pineapple. Body: Light. Alcohol: Medium. Umami: Medium. Acidity: Low. Personal opinion: Sake has a clear, colourless appearance with high viscosity. Very woody and lactic aroma were noted on the nose, with some Ginjo-ka observed as well. On the palate, the woody notes remain, and Gingo-ka becomes more apparent. Low intensity of aroma and some complexity were observed. Sake is light for Junmai Daiginjo, and it’s dry. Weak attack was felt, and it ends off with a crisp finish and lingering woody-ness and fruity notes as aftertaste. This is a very light sake with some really delicate notes on the nose and palate, especially as a Junmai Daiginjo. Very typical as a so-shu. It’s the kind of sake which you can either pair it with food (something light in flavour), or simply just a drink by itself without any food. Very easy to drink. ごちそうさまでした。 3rd day after opening: Nose: Intensity of the aroma now is probably a medium. Ginjo-ka is more pronounced now; the woody notes is still present, but it’s not so apparent now. Lactic notes still present. Palate: Similar observation as the impression on the nose.
It's a pleasant sake but the wood was nowhere to be found, didn't get the extra vanilla or wood flavor in the sake.
