A Junmai Nigori by Kizakura Brewery
Tozai, "Snow Maiden" sake served cold has a very vodka-like alcoholic scent. Its appearance is milky white with a thin film floating starches.
The first sip was dry, think and powdery. That might sound strange, but there was a definite powdery texture which may be why it seemed dry in a good way. It felt clean an consistent throughout and the alcohol seemed less pronounce the further down the bottle. By the second cup it was really growing on me. It seemed like a great accompaniment to red meat.
There was nothing mysterious or complex about this sake. It is nigori as it should be.
Paid $10 for 300ml
Conclusion: Good standby especially with meat.
