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.

A Mes rate. Bottle thanks to Craig, via Chris.
Smells floral as hell, with some glorious but delicate banana in the background. Not sure about this milky appearance, never had an unfiltered sake before. Also not a fan of the thick body. Flavour is good though. Identical to the aroma with a lengthy banana aftertaste. Good but weird.

Unclear hazy to murky medium milk white color with virtually none head. Aroma is moderate to light heavy rice, fruity, wood, moderate alcohol.

This stuff isn’t awful but I think I’m still not used to sake yet. Pour a milky white and gas an aroma if alcohol, coconut and some wattery rice pudding. Flavor is sweet and boozy! There are some pleasant sweet rice pudding like flavors bur the blast of booze gives me the shivers.

300mL bottle. Beautiful Nigori pour. A gentile swirl leave a very fine particulate on the sides of my glass. Aroma is quite creamy... semi-sweet. Plenty of koji, tapioca, a bit of coconut. Slightly perfumy with some floral notes... lavender and jasmine first come to mind. A very pretty nose for sure. Flavor doesn’t quite match the aroma, however. The alcohol isn’t masked all that well. Some fruity flavors (pineapple most notably). Perfume. Quite floral and mostly dry. Koji, dried coconut and banana. The alcohol really comes to the fore on the palate and masks a lot of the the subtle flavors. Medium bodied with a very distracting chalky mouth feel mid-palate back to the finish... almost gritty at times. Decent, but an altogether forgettable nigori. 100th% for the style? Hardly...

This is very pretty in the bottle. Nice cloudy white. The smell is of a rich red wine. There is also a sweetness to the nose. The palate is very creamy. Hints of berry with red wine after tone. Very floral and a lot of different notes to pick up off of each sip.

CanIHave4Beers (3427) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - MAR 31, 2009
Pours a milky cloudy white with a slight yellow tint. The sake leaves a little bit of sediment on the sides of the glass. Aroma is very unique with some hints of berry and a little bit of floral . There is something else here that I can’t put my finger on but I like it. The flavor is very interesting and not at all what I expected. There is some strawberry and plenty of booze. There is certainly an woodiness that works well with a very vinous red wine like character, it’s mildly sweet but far more dry. The palate is odd but intriguing, the sake is very thick and leaves a sort of residue on your mouth.

french tickler (649) - Aylmer, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 8, 2009
"Dégusté" avec Agaguk et grandgenie. Apparence tres lactique, lait en poudre diluée dans de l’eau, fine particule blanche apparente... Aromes de coconut, lait écremé. lait de coconut, riz. De loin le meilleur de son style mais tout de meme pas dans mes interets des plus profond. Sensation de lactose, beaucoup d’alcool corps moyen. LEGER gout d’apricot, lait de coconut reviens, eau de riz. Je dois dire a nouveau que ce n’es pas dutout mon style, par contre je dois avouer qu’il es pas mal moin pire que son précédent.

Ma première expérience de saké.... Acheté à la LCBO, et dégusté dans un verre dieu du ciel du 10e aniversaire. Bouteille de 330ml millésimé 2008. Apparence impressionnante couleur du lait écrémé, sans effervescence et laissant un gros dépôt sur les parois du verre. Arômes de vanille, banane, coconut avec une touche de vodka. Un goût d’alcool de vodka, de riz et de gogi qui est un fruit disponible pour c’est bien fait d’antioxidant. J’adore, elle est équilibré, plein de corps, une longue finale et on ne pourrais dire le 12.5%. Une belle création, une belle bouteille et de la finesse. Je ne sais pas le profil de vieillissement mais je vais essayer dans faire vieillir. J’ai un présentiment, je vois très bien un repas avec comme partenaires de bon sushis.....
