Our first impression of the Masugu was that of a very light and dry Junmai with a nose of marzipan and (according to my wife) cinnamon. Due to its slightly strong acidity, it has a refreshing flavour. Initially a little thin, it revealed its subtle and well-balanced character upon further sittings—smooth and mild finish.
