COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
SAYURI means "a little lily", which reminds us of the delicate image of Japanese culture. In actuality, the word "yuri", or "lily", has the meaning in floral terms of "chastity" and "innocence", and "SAYURI" is also used as a name for Japanese girls and women. We created SAYURI as an embodied gracefulness of Japan. Using only selected rice and rice koji, this is pure Nigori sake brewed up carefully with the natural water of Rokko.

pours very cloudy milky with a lot of tiny particles, some lacing. vanilla-flavored rice pudding, sweet powdery candies, booze, flowery and floury, woodsy notes - almost astringent - coconut milk with its nut, lot of minerals - chalk, faint bananas. light carbonation, medium body - oily and almost syrupy; sweet but never cloying; and warming lightly peppery astringent finish. nice relatively complex sweetish offering.

tom10101 (3670) - Quebec, CANADA - MAR 4, 2015
UPDATED: MAR 8, 2015 Bottle (300 ml). Split 2-ways with the lady. Shaken as the instruction says.

Appearance: Looks like coconut milk. Cloudy with sediments floating.

Aroma: Alcohol at first (though it’s not massively boozy) with light fruitiness, overcooked rice, coconut notes and light fruitiness.

Taste: Alcohol, moderate fruitiness, moderate to medium sweetness, coconut water, rice and floral presence.

Palate: Medium body. Milky mouthfeel. A bit viscous too. Moderate warming finish. Mild lingering coconut.

Overall: My first sake rating so take this with a grain of salt (even though a huge amount of ratings doesn’t necessarily translate in good ratings, take czar for example, he is almost at 5K now and is still writing a bunch of BS) [ EDIT ;-) ]. Interesting first try. The alcohol is well hidden. Not really easily drinkable, but somewhat tasty and enjoyable. Looking forward to try a few more and get a better comprehension of Sake.

Bottle pour at School sushi. Very milk cloudy with a light melon taste and maybe some coconut. Enjoyable and good to sip. Boozy.

Jow (2534) - New York, USA - JUL 6, 2014
Bottle while grabbing quick lunch. Pours very opaque white. Nose is fruity and of rice. Tastes of strawberries, pineapple, honey dew, egg whites, rice, and coconut water. Touch starchy on palate but goes down smooth and hides abv. Nice summer sake

firemarshal (190) - North Carolina, USA - JUN 28, 2014
Disclaimer: I’ve never had or rated sake before. Pours a milky white color. Nose of rice sugar, herbs, floral. Taste is astringent, sweet coconut. Smooth and silky mouthfeel.

conway (1928) - - MAY 29, 2014
Bottle. Pours like watered down milk. Aroma is rice, wine and some floral notes. Taste adds a sweet coconut milk note. Mouthfeel is chalky and a little sticky. This is actually incredibly enjoyable, but I'm not entirely sure how to convey that properly in a sake review.
