I've been drinking sake longer then I've actually been drinking grape wine. I consider them both wine so I don't want to call them anything different. Sake was the first wine I gave a shot to and before that all I would drink was the occasional fruity cocktail that you couldn't taste or smell the alcohol in. I got the opportunity at a sushi restaurant named TOMO to try a sake sampler which gave us a small shot glass of each type of sake. I don't know label names of what I tried but I could say I loved the high grade sake but my favorite (which is usually the most expensive I can afford is the Nigori sakes. To me I can taste a little bit of rice pudding flavor into it. I haven't focused on labels yet because of Tennessee wine and liquor laws makes some stuff hard to get. I can't even order the wine of the month packs from Gary because of our laws.
Now here's the weird thing drinking sake actually made me appreciate drier wines and weened me off the fruity sweet drinks. I can say my own palette started expanding because of sake. I hope you do more sake shows I haven't finished looking though the archives but this is great.
