Brewery Tomita Shuzo
SMV +1.0

Urban Sake Tasting Note:

Thicker bodied nigori with a great balance and recommended for drinking with food. Try something fried like Japanese fried chicken. This sake is not a sweet type of nigori, but then again not overtly dry either. It keeps coming back to balance. Brewer recommends trying this sake on the rocks. I’ve tried it and love it. Rocks it is!

Tasting Notes

  1. LaMonte Heflick

    :

    Shichihon Yari Junmai Ginjo nigori. This is a Junmai Ginjo 純米吟醸 (pure rice only sake, no brewers alcohol has been added). It is a nigori にごり. That is, some of the sake kasu or lees have been left in. Hence the sake appears cloudy. If you’re new to nigori, please note that you need to shake the bottle before serving. Having tried Yuki no Bosha nigori, by comparison the Shichihon Yari was thicker, milkier, and appeared to have more lees suspended in the liquid. I found it to be slightly sweeter than Yuki no Bosha (but not sweet mind you). Nigori is always an experience after having plain, regular sake. Many people really enjoy it. I find that sake novices get a kick out it. It’s a fun brew! 乾杯
