Yaegaki Nigori Sake
Yaegaki Sake & Spirits Yaegaki Nigori Sake (16.0% alcohol by volume) is an unfiltered cloudy sake brewed with Yamada-Nishiki rice. Some Nigori brewers add rice particles or sugar to increase their nigori's sweetness. Yaegaki coarsely filters the sake allowing unfiltered rice particles to pass through to the sake so the sweetness of this sake is all natural. The rice is polished to allow 65% of the kernal to remain. The sake has a big aroma redolent of pears, floral perfume and rice with vegetable and spice notes. It has a cloudy, dense powdered milk look. The flavors are complex, divine, elegant and rounded. Rich fruit, citrus, citrus peel, some grain, chalky rice, melon, cotton candy, and tropical fruit slide over the tongue. The sweet sake finds balance with medium high acidity and very soft, smooth clean alcohol flavors. This is an obvious go to sake whenever eating sushi or sashimi and it also pairs well with spicy and fatty food. Try it with a curry, barbecue, or fish and chips. I rate it 90.
