Tamanohikari “Sasanigori”

Kyoto Prefecture


Tastes like spring is in the air

The brewers like to release this nigori in February, usually the coldest month where they are, in anticipation of spring. The label reflects both snow and the coming cherry blossoms. The smooth, slightly unrefined texture is reminiscent of snow melting on the tongue. Not an overly sweet nigori but this one is more subtle, and even has a hint of cinnamon spice candy. Goes great with BBQ.
