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.

Lots of clustered white clouds, smell of melons, slightly tart, light effervescence, bit of diaper, DELICIOUS, only lightly sweet, great with our summer Japanese meal.
