In "Koi NISHIKIGOI", the grade and rice is kept a secret – this is to allow one's sense of smell and taste to be surprised, appreciating its flavour and aroma without sight and knowledge of it.
Good intensity and umami. Lactic acidity, refreshing with slight heat on the finish. Nice tropical fruits and rice aromas. Well balanced with umami and sweetness. It would be good to try it warm.
The beauty within is equally matched by the beauty without as the bottle that houses Nishikigoi Saké is artfully crafted by Yamaharu Glass Co. The distinctive red-on-white pattern that mimics the Kohaku variety of Koi has been the recipient of numerous design awards, making each unique bottle a collector’s item.

The design of the bottle!
Very Smooth and rice in favour
Bold flavours supported by good body. Flavours of ripe fruits accompanied with notes of rice.
Nice tasting all rounded sake. Pretty bottle and very good deal from Inter Rice. Hope they can bring in the 1800 cc bottles
