I stoped by a local specialty liquor store, Uncorked, looking for a nigori sake. I’ve had it in restaurants and really enjoyed it. I figured it was time to have a bottle or two at home. I decided to try this brand and a lower price brand to compare. This product gave me exactly what I wanted. A slight sweet taste, pleasant aroma and the milky color I expect with a nigori sake. I will be sure to always keep a bottle on hand as in continue my sake education journey. bpreo (2943) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - SEP 25, 2011
Little Lily is the perfect name to use when describing this delicate Nigori. It is bottled beautifully, tastes among the best, and is gentle on your palate. And like the White Crane it is soft and lifting with a solid organic white color. Sayuri is an excellent Sake! MichaelAwesome (6545) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - JUL 27, 2013
It is really impossible to find a huge surprise like this one. Really. Where would you start ? That huge look of the bottle ? That huge look of the sake itself (mixture of milk and...soda...) ? Or maybe with that balanced aroma of ripe fruits and a huge ananas as a topping. Hard to explain. Just try. And be knocked out. Thumbs up. Definitely.

Selected this bottle at a Japanese store this morning and literally didn’t know what to expect... It pours out like skimmed milk (actually I hate that milk and prefer the full fat version, but probably every woman knows the look of skimmed milk): Cloudy light white colour, thin body. The nose was of flowers, peaches and Sake. Taste of eggwhite, pineapple, berries, flowers, rice and green fruits. Very dry finish. Enjoyed it a lot - one of the best Sakes ever! pootzboy (1803) - Kitchener, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 4, 2008
From my thin understanding of Sake this is how traditional crafted sake should look, taste and feel.
Pours a milky white, with substantial almond-grape tones with a musty koji tone.
Full bodied for a sake, sweetish, fruity (melon) and creamy smooth. Sweetish-fruity finish with warming following.
A great example of the Nigori style

Bottle was opened a 3 days ago, finishing off the last few ounces. Served chilled in an ochoko-like glass cup. Pours very cloudy after shaking (which is good for a coarse filtered sake. Smells of rice being cooked. Wine is thicker than other sakes, in the same way skimmed milk is thicker than water. Taste is sweet on the tongue but quickly becomes very strong.
Rice settles if left too long. Leaves sugar-rice residue on cup.

UPDATED: APR 23, 2016 (Bouteille): Un liquide magnifique, divinement laiteux et raisonnablement homogène qui hurle son onctuosité. Le nez est hyper frais, noisettes, angles bananesques et riz collant qui se retrouve également en bouche. On est dans l’élégance, la texture fondante et une discretion exemplaire de l’éthanol.
