Tokubetsu Junmai Nigori (unfiltered) – “Big Mountain Cloudy”
Nigori sake (its name roughly translates to “cloudy” because of its appearance) is unfiltered. It ranges from slightly cloudy to milky white. It generally is the sweetest of all sakes, but Ohyama is pretty dry, and one of the most elegant Nigori sakes to be found. Fresh notes of pear, apple and candied plum. On the palate, creamy texture, light, balanced sweetness and flavors of underripe peach, greek yogurt and cedar.
Alcohol content: 14% – 14.9%.
