This Kimoto Ginjo has a rich body, well-balanced acidity, and strong umami flavor. Umami is the aftertaste, which is a balanced richness from both bitterness and sweetness, and a smooth acidity. Yogurt and sour cream flavors can be detected in the long, lingering finish. On the nose, find Lychee, Melon, muscat, orange, fragrant olive, lime, lemongrass, yogurt. On the palate, enjoy detailed, balmy and bulge body, gentle and mellow sweetness, clean acidity.
It was a lovely find to try “Izumibashi “Black Dragonfly Kimoto Junmai 2 year aged.” The flavor is amazingly refined and smooth. The description of the product provided is quite accurate. I had it paired with a soba meal and it worked very nice. I recommend this sake and will definitely buy it again.
