I've never tried sake and was wondering if anyone had suggestions on which brands, taste, and price?
I rarely drink Sake, but when I do I ask for a really sweet (think dessert wine) sake. Several of the local sushi bars in my location offer "sake samplers" - I'd recommend starting with something like that until you have a general idea of what your tastes are.
I just introduced my wife to hot sake at a Christmas party last weekend. We went through 4 small bottles at the Japanese resturant, we split some with other people, but drank most of them ourselves. I think I have created a monster, this is all she talks about now.....SAKE!!!!!
Not to hijack the thread, visit a good Japanese steakhouse or Sushi bar and talk to them, they usually have a couple different types. A hot Sake taste different than cold one, so you may have to experiment some. And remember, Don't Drink & Drive! Have a designated driver. It's Safer & Cheaper!
I love warm Sake, but we only drink it when we dine out at Chinese.
Absolutely avoid Sake.
It is addictive. Hot or cold.
It is so addictive that a major Japanese maker has opened a sake brewery in the lower end of Napa County, California.;c
sake BOMB...sake BOMB...
I'll try most anything. I also do so more than once to give it a fair-shake.
I can't recall how many times I've tried a swallow of sake when at any sushi or Japanese restaurant. I just can't warm-up to the taste of it. It's simply rice-vinegar at a much higher price.;Q
If you can find it, Awamori, an Okinawan type of sake is pretty good. Or if you are feeling adventurous you could try Habu Sake. Its made with a poisonous snake on Oki. I brought back a bottle with a snake coiled up on the bottom.
