I thought the nose smelled like sesame oil with sweet notes of apples, pears, and steamed rice. On the other hand, my partner thought it smelled like damp laundry. I get where she's coming from, especially when you think about dried-out detergent, but that descriptor's just plain brutal. Safe to say she didn't like it at all. The palate's soft and fruity, medium-bodied, with a sweetish yet elegant finish. I liked it. Solid house pour during KK + R's after-party. From 1800ml bottles. — a month ago

Brew is 2018 December. Very smooth and friuty flavorful but light body, absolutely enjoyable...but dangerous because you can drink endless. There was no alcohol tase, just great flavor from rice and water. Absolue favorite of “Haneya” brand so far...be warned, this may blow your mind. — 7 months ago
Creamy and citrusy, with beautiful floral strawberry at the front and all bright and cream through to the finish. Much improved at warmer temperatures, around 60F/15C. Lightly sweet and very lovely to sip. — 2 months ago
Perhaps one of the best sake I have ever tried! It is an incredible sake with amazing length. It last easily 2 min on the palate! Never experienced such a depth for a sake. This kitaya (best Japanese rice) dai ginjo is some what equivalent to a great a great French white! Delight! — 6 months ago
