FROTHINGSLOSH (4546) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 4, 2013
Sampled form a 300 ml blue bottle this sake poured a milky white color that left great lacing a particulates. The aroma was rice, vodka, cream and a hint of black pepper. The flavor was vodka, rice, a hint of melon, cream and vanilla. Long sweetish rice, melon and cream finish. Full bodied. Quite nice.

SanfordBrewer (1382) - Sanford, Florida, USA - MAR 10, 2013
milky off-white with particulates (like rice milk or almond milk). creamy and a bit coating.

aroma: sticky rice, warm alcohol, strong yeast character (just like turbo yeast), and faint apple and pear esters.

taste: sweet nutty rice, bitter yeast residue, mild acidity, and warm alcohol.

overall, rather boring. not unpleasant, just lacking brightness and enticing esters.

Gription79 (2158) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - FEB 14, 2013
Had along side my sushi dinner. Looks milk like, grainy nose, some hot alcohol, creamy. A nice sake, but my least favorite out of the flight I had.

DrSilverworm (5054) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 25, 2012
750ml bottle, shared at a family Hibachi dinner. ABV labeled as 18% on the back. Bottle was chilled, and shaken well before served into tiny white ceramic shot glasses. The waiter offered me a wine glass for mine, I accepted. Either he guessed that I like to take notes on appearance, or they ran out of ceramic thimble glasses, I’m not sure. Creamy milky off-white color, like condensed milk, but clearly not as thick. Leaves a lot of residue on the side of the glass. Ricey, kind of a boozy nose. Kind of a sweet smell. Desert-like, like rice pudding. Bigger body. Thick. But not sticky. More dry. Rice pudding aroma. Not really any carbonation. Light alcohol burn, kinda sweet. For the ABV, this is surprisingly not bad to sip.

This pretty cobalt blue bottled sake from a bottle shop poured a large sized head of clear colored bubbles that were quickly diminishing and left behind an uncarbonated hazy milky thin colored body. The strong aroma was of vinous polished rice. The vinous mouth feel was tingly and vinous at the start and strongly tingly at the finish with a vinous aftertaste that ended in a typical Sake vinous alcohol bite. The flavor contained notes of polished rice in a vinous alcohol noticeably strong finish yet one that was not of the typical burning alcohol one expects from a Sake. The second glass was noticeably more milky after being shook up with a much thicker milkier palate. A decent one that I would consider buying again.

boFNjackson (4028) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 7, 2012
Bottle... Poured creamy, milky, opaque white. Thick, milky mouthfeel. Sweet, rice-like, gritty texture. Coconut milk, light fruits probably from fermentation. Easy finish with only a hint of alcohol for its strength.

porterhouse (1581) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - JUN 8, 2012
(750 ml from Global Beverage) Served lightly chilled and shaken. Pours cloudy white. Aroma of fruit, rice and alcohol. Mouthfeel creamy-milky but thin, not much texture for the style. Flavor of sweet fruit and rice. Milky-creamy, slight coconut hint and a bit of paste/glue. Hot, lots of ABV presence.

skolad (6) - British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 20, 2012 does not count
Beautiful white color, with strong fruity aroma. Flavors of honeydew and cantaloupe, with light malty notes, and a lemony brightness. Creamy texture, rolls well on the tongue. A continuing favorite.

This poured a milky white color. Aroma was rice, grainy, alcohol and some coconut. Flavor was chalky, rice, lots of alcohol and very light fruitiness.

A top class Nigori, I really enjoyed drinking it. I would love to drink it many times more.
