Tasting Notes and Technical Description:
In contrast to its filtered counterparts, Joto Junmai Nigori Sake presents a clouded, milky appearance, accentuated by delicate rice particles suspended throughout. The opalescent hue is both visually inviting and indicative of its unfiltered nature.
The nose exudes a compelling array of aromas, from sweet notes of melon and coconut milk to more robust scents of steamed rice and umami. The subtle underlying fragrance of fresh herbs and minerals adds an ethereal nuance.
The initial palate encounter is a sumptuous melody of sweet tropical fruits—think ripe mango and lychee—followed by the textured sensation of the rice sediment. The sweet, fruity ingress smoothly transitions into a more complex flavor landscape, featuring elements of cream, nuttiness, and a touch of earthiness.
The finish is surprisingly clean, considering its creamy mouthfeel. The flavor settles into a gentle sweetness, complemented by an almost floral aftertaste. The experience concludes with a lingering sense of balance, highlighting the sake's inherent umami.
Rich, creamy, and almost chewy, the unfiltered rice particles lend this sake a unique and voluptuous texture. Despite its complexity, it remains remarkably easy to drink, making it both fascinating and approachable.
