59 Takachiyo Red Yeast Junmai Nigori

$59

Red sake, you do say?! This unpasteurized sake is completely natural in how it derives its fizz, color, and taste. It is the most fun sake we have to offer. This sake is muroka, which means it has not been filtered with charcoal. As a result there is a small amount of rice lees, which makes the sake slightly cloudy. This is completely natural and doesn’t affect the quality of the sake in any way. To ensure freshness please keep this bottle refrigerated. It is recommended that this sake be consumed sooner than later, while it is fresh, especially after opening the bottle.

A rish and unique flavor

My wife loved this far more than I did, and it WILL be on future orders for me from Sake Social. Personally I feel that it would have been a better drink overall if the carbonation were reduced, although that may contradict the nature of this blend. I liked the taste and prefer the dry sake's but it might have been a bit better with a touch more sweetness if the carbonation is staying at that level.

Winner!

I prefer Nigori, so I was excited to try this one. We got a bottle each of this and the Junmai and we all loved them both. This Nigori was quite pleasant and smooth; would definitely buy again.
