    I am an alkieholic, but know nothing about Sake. :(

    Still, I am sure that Western Booze > Eastern Booze.
    Only by living absurdly is it possible to break out of this infinite absurdity.

    Had Masumi Okuden out on Friday. Nicer than I remembered - especially for the price. Fruity and floral, yet fairly dry.


    Just re-read my dissertation on page one, post #2. DAYAM. In retrospect, probably coulda pared it down to three sentences had I slept on it. I blame over-enthusiasm, tiredness that night, and my mother's side of the family.

    Enjoyed a bottle of Rihaku "Wandering Poet" over two nights this week. Been several years, and it was really good. Full flavored and crowd-pleasing style, light to medium body (15.2% alcohol), and a long and very clean finish. Easy to find, and $18 bucks at my local shop, for a junmai ginjo of this quality it's a great value.

    The Japanese usually wouldn't heat a junmai ginjo, but something in teh flavor profile kept thinking it may be good this way too. Will try it next time.

    had a great round of sake bombs at a local sushi place last week. I forget the name of the sake as I was blurried by the beers and sake shots. certainly not the cheap kind. served cold, of course.
    I BELIEVE I'll have another beer!

    Sake Question...How long is sake good for? Does it age well like other wines? I have a very old bottle of sake that I am not sure about.

    Open it the next chance you get. Sake ages badly and is meant to be drunk young and fresh. Hope it's not too late for you. I ruined a great bottle given as a gift by just "waiting" for a special enough occasion (about 3 years). Was stored in a wine cabinet, but when the moment finally came it was oxidized, over-matured and almost sherry-like. Yours might be drinkable, but consider another bottle on hand just in case.
