Possibly the sexiest Nigori we have ever tasted. You don't usually see Nigori at a Daiginjo level! This is sleek and delightfully light. There is a touch of zippy acidity, which helps lift the sweetness of the rice. Great fruity notes and a very clean style for a creamy sake.

Watari Bune is an "heirloom" rice strain, meaning it has never been crossed with another variety. It is also one of the parent strains to Yamada Nishiki, the most celebrated sake rice. Watari Bune had gone out of use for fifty years until this brewery revived it in 1989 with 14 grams of seeds. By 1996, they won a gold medal at Japan's National Sake Competition, and another in 1998. This is a deep, nutty, earthy, and complex sake with balancing notes of tropical pineapple and honeydew melon. One of the best pairings for umami-rich foods like pate or monkf...

This is truly old school brewery from Gifu prefecture was founded in 1868. They like to say "Nothing has changed from the beginning." One of the smallest breweries in Japan, they're making only a few thousand bottles a year and most of it is sold locally in large format. This is their "small size" - a still hefty 900ml. Without access to modern technology, the entire process is extremely labor intensive and slow. The locally procured rice is milled in-house, a practice which normally would never happen in a brewery this small. Yamada Shoten use a locally...

From the producer: “ 'If we make good sake, people will support it.' That’s been our motto since Kokuryu was founded in 1804 in the mountains of Fukui. It’s an ancient land, nestled between snowy peaks and the Sea of Japan, not far from the main Soto Zen temple Eihei-ji. From a long tradition of sake brewing, Kokuryu today stands as one of the region’s few survivors. We grow our own rice. We seek out special yeasts. And we strive for the best in brewing and maturation, hand-crafting only the highest-caliber sakes in small batches. Pure water is vital t...

94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Very pale yellow. Complex nose offers saline, herbal and spicy notes, with a minty coolness. Wonderfully subtle, complex and precise, with a distinctly ethereal quality, high-pitched minerality and superb lift. Finishes very dry and persistent, with lovely lift. This is made inside an igloo in Hokkaido, in Japan's extreme north, where below-freezing temperature prevents unwanted bacteria from surviving, thus ensuring a very pure sake. The clear sake is separated from the fermenting rice lees by putti...

This is a fairly thick and chewy "nigorizake" (cloudy sake), but it is still surprisingly dry. The aromas are bright and fresh and they show a lovely ricey and fruity combination. In the mouth, this sake has solid weight and gives the same flavors of fresh fruit and creamy fresh rice that your nose told you about. The finish has a pleasant astringency and is nicely mellow, beckoning you for another mouthful. You will rarely taste a classier nigori at this price. This maybe the ultimate food-friendly nigori.

About this producer: "Isojiman Shuzo is located in Szikuoka Prefecture, on the coast of Suruga Bay, with Mount Fuji rising towards the east and the foothills of the Southern Japanese Alps to the north. Relatively young for such a heralded brewery, Isojiman was established in 1830. It wasn't until the 1970's that its fame became cemented, when Isojiman led the push towards what is considered high end sake today: a drier, cleaner, and more refined style. It is one of the only breweries in Japan that uses an almost completely stainless steel facility, apart...

This sake is made with yeast that is obtained directly from the brewer that discovered it, rather than through the usual distribution channels. Yeast #9 makes the sake a bit more lively and intense.

Until this sake came along in the 1960’s, all sake had distilled alcohol added to it due to rice shortages and war rationing. After the war, Chiyonosono crafted the first junmai sake (brewed with neither distilled alcohol nor additives of any kind) and celebrated by sharing it from a large, red lacquered sake cup called a Shuhai. The brewers made a promise to one another to keep up their efforts each year to make high-quality sake from rice alone. Delicate and soft, with a hint of sweetness coddled in layers of umami. Subtle floral notes and orange citru...

The 500 Mangoku varietal of rice is difficult to use but when handled properly can be devastatingly intriguing.

Wine Enthusiast: "This rich, floral sake softens the sharpness of this ash-ripened, salty goat cheese from Vermont. It’s made in Hiroshima by one of the few female sake masters, or toji, in Japan." K&L Notes: Yamada Nishiki and Hatta Nishiki polished to 55%. The very soft water in this region results in a sake with an extremely floral nose and a soft, very fruity style. This is bottled without charcoal filtering, to allow more of the natural aromatics to make it into the bottle. And the flowers and fruits in the nose show you why they chose to do this....

Ultra clean, yet building aromatic layers with subtle stone fruit and hints of yellow flowers. This has great complexity, with a long and lovely finish, a medium to rich mid-palate and very fine finish.
