NIGORI is the way sake first appeared when it was brewed for the Imperial Court in Kyoto as well as for most of its 2,000 year history. It is coarsely-filtered and the sweetest of all our types of sake. It is especially delicious with very spicy foods. The bottle should be shaken each time before pouring due to the high rice content that settles in the bottom of the bottle.

I had no idea sake could be like this... cloudy and milky-white, very sweet, just a tad alcohol flavor and bite near the end. Almost fruity in the flavor. I’m not a sake guy, so I’m not sure whether this is good or bad!

Bottle 375ml, a cloudy off white liquid, nose is on fermented rice, bit of acetone and almond. Taste is very sweet with light sourness, aroma on rice, almond, ripped fruits such as apple and cider like, alcohol is burning. Body has a milk like taste with cider notes, very sweet, very nice and surprising sake.

MrBeerFanatic (1018) - Friona, Texas, USA - JUL 18, 2016
This is my first ever rated sake and to my knowledge the second sake I’ve ever tried. Rated in friona tx. Cloudy with color. Aromas sweet musky rice, alcohol and bread. Flavors very sweet rice, bread and medium alcohol (big through the nose). Highly sweet and mono-toned (guess thats normal in sake land). Interesting.

Looks like almond milk with sediment. Boozy and hot with a mild sweet undercurrent. Better with food than alone.

A very commonly found Sake. Aroma: Alcohol, rice, sweetness. Appearance: Cloudy white, almost like milk. Notes of banana and fruit along with sweetness. Palate is clean. It’s a normal sweet Sake. I prefer some of the other ones more but this is a fine introduction.

UPDATED: APR 26, 2015 From sampler tray at Ugly Fish. Milky white pour; leaves behind dregs of rice on the side of the glass. Aroma is soy sauce, rice, booze. Taste is sweet and boozy. Tastes good, but I’m no sake expert.
