I have to agree with earlier reviewers that the taste of this does not resemble other Mirins that I have bought. It is very sweet. Looking at the label though it says it is a 'sweet rice seasoning' with no mention of 'wine'. I have used it successfully in a range of sweet and savoury dishes and am including another bottle in my next order.
Tastes like syrup mixed with a touch of vinegar
too sweet and not very complimentary with any savoury dish I tried. In the end I used it to make a brine as I hate to waste food away.
Misleading name - NOT MIRIN
Misleading! This is not mirin, despite the name. Mirin is a type of rice wine. This is a sweet rice flavouring mostly consisting of glucose syrup. Probably a breach of the trades descriptions act. Would never buy again, nor trust the manufacturer.
Not good enough,
I found this quite bland and was expecting a stronger alcoholic presence or more complex flavour. Very disappointing.
