Nigori sake at the LCBO - What do they have that's good?

I'm serving it with sushi (no maki) at home. I usually only drink it in restaurants so I'm not really familiar with what they have.

    Or you could order this from Vintages:

    I'm not a Nigori guy but I wouldn't call these "good" nigori by any means, rather they'd be your only options at this point. The options are a bit better if you're going to serve a Junmai Daiginjo or something with the Nigiri but that's it for Nigori.

      Thanks! I'd hate to ruin a nice dinner at home. I admit ignorance in sake relying on the kindness of servers to help me out. Is there a Junmai Daiginjo you'd recommend with a hope in hell of finding it? MAN, they don't do a god job stocking sakes.

          This was incredibly generous of you. Thanks a bunch Notorious.
