Rihaku "Dreamy Clouds"
Description: A complex aroma profile touching on steamed rice, cream, slight toffee and a hint of plum skin. This nigori is the complete package for those looking for a subtle chewy and creamy sake that has flavor waves of nuts, ripe fruits, toffee, earth tones, and a tinge of banana. It is a multi-layered nigori with a pronounced acidity that has a subtle sweetness but leaves a dry mouth. Soft and supple Dreamy Clouds is that "partially sunny or partially cloudy" in between nigori that appeals to both the dry and sweet camp.
