FROTHINGSLOSH (4895) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 29, 2013
Sampled from a 750 ml bottle this sake poured a pale milky color. Only a mild level of viscosity with lots of particulates left behind. The aroma is creamed rice and a hint of perfume. The flavor has a pronounced alcohol bite with noted astringency followed by rice, vodka, soap, perfume and a hint of pepper. Medium length finish of astringent alcohol and rice. Medium bodied though slick in a way that seems watery. Ok.

BeerandBlues2 (9586) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - MAY 12, 2013
Pours milky, cloudy white, translucent. Aroma is sweet rice, soft fruits, and spicy alcohol. Flavor is sweet rice, bright with soft pear notes, and lightly peppery alcohol. Full body.

b3shine (5304) - Indiana, USA - MAR 4, 2013
Bottle to snifter (shared with ther Mrs.). Looks good for a nigori; a still, cloudy, skim milky off-white. Smells solid; alcohol and creme. Tastes like it smells, but slightly less robust. Smooth on the palate. An enjoyable sake.

Inebelation (4) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - FEB 16, 2013 does not count
Not sure why I’m going so hard against the grain again with this particular brand, but I couldn’t stand this nigori. The appearance was off...almost like the milky rice particles were too large and kept falling out of slurry. It didn’t look creamy for more than 30 seconds. The taste was like a sweeter version of Tozai’s Living Jewel, which I didn’t like because it reminded me of a cleaning fluid with an artificial lemon scent. The palate was too thin for a nigori. Instead of making the palate creamy, the unfiltered rice powder kept feeling like rice flakes that formed a mush and made my teeth try stick together. Probably the worst sake I’ve had excluding futsu shu style.

Had with my sushi dinner. Very thick and creamy, grainy, earthy, fruity, slight pear, easy drinking/smooth and silky. Very nice.

crazyvin (1929) - New York, USA - DEC 14, 2012
A nice cloudy white body with a yellow twinge to it. Aroma was very mild, some alcohol. Flavor had good balance rice notes, some cream a nice floral quality really rounded out the flavor. Finish was slightly warming and the alcohol was warming. Smooth body and a full palate.
