Hitorimusume "Only One Daughter"
Description: This very dry nigori has a milky nose filled with cinnamon and tangerine essences. The first sip tells one that this is a dry brew with a thin " almost like coconut milk straight from the coconut " texture and a Japanese apple-pear finish. It is smooth and round with a subtle cinnamon cookie feeling and refreshing non-sweet personality. A must try for nigori fans looking for a dry brew.
