Rihaku Nigori Sake Candle

One of the good things about where I live is that there is a heavy Asian concentration, which means there are Asian supermarkets such as H-Mart (Korean; used to be called Hanareum but because tongue-challenged Generic-Americans have trouble pronouncing Hanareum, they changed it to H-Mart) and Mitsuwa in Edgewater, NJ. In Mitsuwa, they have a great selection of Japanese made liquor such as beer, whiskey, other stuff that I can’t remember, and of course, sake. I love browsing the alcohol section because I love looking at the bottles, most of which are eye-candy. The Japanese create some of the most interesting and aesthetically pleasing bottles in the world.

Nigori is one of my favorite kinds of sake. It is milky and you have to shake it well before you pour. It has a slighty fruity taste and is sweet. It is a refined derivation of the Korean rice fermented peasant liquor makkolli.
