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.

Shaken it pours a milky white with a flat appearance. Nose is somewhat soapy and floral, smidgens of tang creeping in, and some tropical fruit and/or melon on top. Light, milky, softly sweet, soapy, floral flavors...a bit watery in the mouth though also quite milky as well...not much if any alcohol notes though and really clean if not florally soapy with a bit of melon rind, and with a sweetness that is very tame but still somewhat evident. Nothing complex here, but I’d be lying if i said this wasn’t some unoffensive and easy drinking stuff right here....just has no complexity to speak of.

White color, like almond milk. Strong Sake aroma, rice, with strong fruitiness too; some alcohol. The mouthfeel is quite thick and a bit astringent; rice and starch; light fruity side (watermelon and honedew), some sweetness, and high alcohol perception.
Interesting experience.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - APR 7, 2011
Bottle at Mondial, sorry my second sake rating. Pours a coconut like milky body that appears unfiltered hence the color and the cloudiness. Nice pineapple notes, berry tones. Ricey and vinous in nature. I’d like to have another bottle of this.
