2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Caraffel @ Hakkasan, NYC. A really light milky white cloudy thing this and it has tons of small white sediments this. Presume that’s why its called summer snow? Cloudy like you have put double cream in some water. Smells like sake alright with rice, starch, it’s kinda sugar sweet and I get some apples also. Sweet apples. Really dry-ish in the taste and unless it’s the psyche playing a trick on me there is a milky flavor as well. Coconut, rice and loaded with potato starch. Well... It’s not all that at first perhaps, but after a while it definitely grows on you. 20.06.2013

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared by my nephew whose friends gave it as a gift and supposedly came from Japan! Nose is casabas and coconuts with the normal ricy grains I smell in sakes; translucent very pale gold; flavor very smooth with a very much white melon flavor along with some alcohol warmth; finish is very slightly sweet and alcoholly! My nephew and his wife thought it stank, but I like it’s classy style. My nephew did like the Surly Darkness sample so he does like good beer if not good sake!

I finally caught up with Kamoizumi Nigori while dining at the new japanese restaurant, Ono, in the Gansevoort Hotel, NYC. Delicious creamy mouthfeel with light sweetness. I agree with JoeT that this is one of the better nigoris, and I’ve certainly had my share of the horrible ones. A credit to the style.
