Tasting sake in a traditional kikichoko sake glass or in stemware?
Twice in a week I have been given stemware to taste sake with. Is it a trend or a fad? Is it better than the sake cup? The thick sides of the traditional cup or the elegant thin glass of stemware? After the first try I made a choice… give me the stemware any day.
deja vu wines in Australia are marketing smaller sake buries from Japan and their selection will keep any conosure happy for many hours. They will soon be available on line so check out their website.
My two favorite sake…
– Tengumai from Ishikawa prefecture which is aged 2 years, est 1823
– Yoshinogawa from Nigata prefecture, est: 1548
