Sake Reviews

Are you looking for some Saké recommendations? If so, here are the links to all of the Saké I have reviewed so far on my blog.

I have a set of collected reviews of Saké, including specific reviews of:
Hakushika Junmai Ginjo
Horin Gekkeikan Junmai Daiginjo
Trader Joe's Sake
Yuki No Bosha limited edition Junmai Ginjo
Hakkaisan Junmai Ginjo
Setsugetsubijin Junmai Ginjo
Fudo Myoo Junmai Ginjo

You can also find individual reviews of Saké, including some within restaurant reviews:
Otokoyama Yukishibare Namazake
Shutendouji Oh Oni Sake
Kamikokoro Toukagen Shiboritate
Mineno Hakubai
Gekkeikan Horin Ultra Premium Junmai Daiginjo
Kurosawa Junmai Kimoto
Tenranzan Kahori Junmai Ginjo
Mukune "Root of Innocence" Junmai Ginjo
Koshi No Tohusetuka "Flower In Winter Snow" Junmai Ginjo

If I had to recommend a single Saké, especially for someone who has never really drank any Saké, then I would have to choose the Hakushika Junmai Ginjo. First, it is relatively inexpensive at $8-9 for a 300ml bottle. Second, it seems available in many different places so should be easy to find. Third, it has a nice clean taste which should not offend anyone. It certainly is so drastically different from a pungent hot Saké. The Hakuskika will give you a good example of the potential of Saké.

Reminder: I also want to bring to your attention again that I am holding a Sake Review contest this month. You can win two books on Sake and all you have to do to enter the contest is drink and review a bottle of Sake. The deadline is January 31. Check out my prior post for all the details.

This is your chance to try a chilled Sake, to taste what is like. Why not take that chance? You might find find a new drink that you enjoy.
