A Nigori Junmai
Daku nigori junmai sake served cold has a rice accented by a slight alcoholic scent. Its appearance is milky lemon-white. It's color is that of natural sake.
The first sip was thick and silky coating the tongue. The taste was of a savory rice on a very slight alcoholic canvas. There was little aftertaste except perhaps a tangy flavor to leave you wanting the next cup. I had high hopes for this nigori since it is a junmai, meaning there is no additional brewer's alcohol diluting it. However, to be honest, the gains were mild at best. Daku is a good nigori with an exceptionally silky composition and subtle flavors.
Paid $20.99 for 500ml
Conclusion: Great with spicy food.
