Delicate daiginjo but full of melon, banana, and strawberry. I prefer even more austere sakes with less fruitiness and sweetness. Tasted next to Dassai 39, this was very similar. The fruitiness was a little weaker in this sake; Dassai 39 tastes fuller. Unlike another reviewer, I did not enjoy this without food. I think the greatness of fine sake is how it pairs with high-end Japanese foods (kaiseki, sushi, and tempura).
Lychee, cantelope, tropical fruits aroma, can clearly smell the sweetness. Clean taste and medium to long finish. A tad sweet for my liking, still great sake though. Same price vs the Dassai "50", but only 300ml vs 720ml. Consumed within a party environment, blind comparison with the "50". Both tasted just a good thus "23" suffers from a QPR point of perspective
