In this episode we taste and compare a couple of saké’s even though we know very little about the drink. If you haven’t tried a lot of saké, or the only experience you’ve had has been with the cheap warm carafe’s of the stuff, you should really take another look at what is available.
I also wanted to give you some post video notes on our experience with these sakés as they were unbelievable. After filming, we heated the sakés up and tried them again. The differences were incredible. Heated, the Drunken Whale was much smoother than cold, and the bite that we mentioned related to the alcohol was non-existent. On the other hand, the Wondering Poet saw an equally dramatic difference for the worse. There was a huge alcohol spike to it on the finish and really no favorable tasting profile. We were all shocked by how differently both sakés fared with the temperature change.
Kanpai! Let’s drink some Saké
