Not sure why Iím going so hard against the grain again with this particular brand, but I couldnít stand this nigori. The appearance was off...almost like the milky rice particles were too large and kept falling out of slurry. It didnít look creamy for more than 30 seconds. The taste was like a sweeter version of Tozaiís Living Jewel, which I didnít 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 Iíve had excluding futsu shu style.

crazyvin (2026) - 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.

degbert (1661) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUL 5, 2011
Bottle. Very cloudy with noticeable deposit on the glass -- this is nigori with an attitude. Nose is Asian pair, apple, and a light lactic edge. Flavor is subdued and rich, well-integrated with a slight sweetness. Finishes long and warm. A good sake in a good style.

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale Łber alles, Arizona, USA - FEB 8, 2010
looks like skim milk with little rice chunks floating in it.... horchata perhaps. either way it sludges up the side of the glass. lots of koji in the nose... along with spicy alcohol, chalky minerals, rice, florals, moist earth (more koji notes?) and distinct cantaloupe. the palate is a little too sweet for me to thoroughly enjoy... though not terribly so... it also hides the alcohol fairly well (as it is only felt as it warms the chest). there is a fruity tartness throughout which reminds me of cucumbers and honeydew... sort of a strange battle between sweet and sour iím not sure that iím fond of. other flavors of rice water, florals, a touch of milkiness and some must fill it out. the mouth feel is gritty with unfiltered bits making the medium body seem fuller than it is. mixed with the acidity, the thickness is rather annoying and unpleasant. 7/4/6/3/13/3.3
