I had this recently when I was in Glasgow for a gig with my boyfriend, and it was really enjoyable. Unlike the one of the previous reviewers, I ordered it cold, and the sweetness of the taste was really good. I'm more than happy to buy this wonderful wine from Amazon, just to remind me of the vert first time that I tasted and fell in love with it.

I would highly recommend this to friends and family.

Had umeshu in Japan, and really wanted to taste it again after I left the country.
This was a different flavour to what I had remembered from my experience in Japan, and this was in fact made in Milan but still delicious.
The thing about Takara plum wine (which I am informed by my Japanese friend is wrongly referred to as a 'wine' when it is in fact a sour) is that once I got a taste for it, I started to crave it!
It is very sour, but mellows when mixed with cola which is an very complementary flavour and I'd highly recommend this combination.
This plum sour is more like a liquor than a wine, and can be kept in the fridge for a while, which maybe wouldn't be possible for a wine.
I'd like some more...

I first had this in a japanese restaurant in Glasgow. It came heated, in a water flask. It is wonderful, so good, that I had to go out and buy the kit and the wine so that I could have it at home. Its light in flavour and scrumptious with it. Very highly recommended warm.

The wine is of good quality with a fruity sweet plum flavour. It's good to go before or after meal, basically is good for anytime of the day.

I'd definitely class this as desert wine. The smell is lovely. I would prefer it to be a bit stronger though, at 10% alcohol this is more like plum wine drink than plum wine. Very nice and I'll definitely buy again, although Kishu Monogatari Plum Wine is still my favourite as it has not as strong a smell, yet a lot stronger taste. It is perfect nearly ice-cold.

Very happy with this item. Have been looking for this for a while and was so pleased who I found it. Item arrived, quickly, in only a few days. I was a bit concerned about the packaging it arrived in, however there was no damage and the its was in perfect condition, so there is no problem.

Brought this a while back but found it was a nicely different taste from the Umeshu I normally buy, it has a nice sweet flavour with out being too intense. Nice to drink on a cold day and easy on the wallet as well

Bought this for my Dad as a birthday present last year. He had never really tried Japanese alcohol before, but enjoyed it so much that we finished the entire bottle in 1 evening! Excellent served chilled.

I absolutely love this sweet, light and refreshing wine. I have to remind myself it's not apple juice and sip it in a ladylike manner. We will definitely be buying more for future special occasions.
