Recommendations for sake that tastes great hot and how to do it.

It’s cold: !!!!

Scarves and down coats. It’s the end of another year!

A sake friend introduced me to what kind of sake is best for heating sake,

And I finally got my hands on some “Shinkame”.

It’s not easy to find. I couldn’t easily find it at the store.

The liquor store that had it was “Kakinuma Sake Shop“.

Opening the package!

Take a sip at room temperature.

Smell it. It has a strong aroma. Mild on the tongue, with a thin overall impression of acidity, richness, and overall thinness. mature sake bottled in 2017.

Juku-Shu Sake

Juku-Shu is matured sake that has been aged for at least three years.
Similar to wine, aging mellows out the flavor.
It changes into a unique taste by oxidizing slowly over time.
The higher the aging temperature, the faster the aging process.

(However, if the temperature is too high, the sake will start to deteriorate.

It’s not bad, but it’s not impressive. Is this what they call old sake?

My favorite Tokkuri bottle I recently discovered.

This puffer feeling…

Not lukewarm, but hot.

Gulp!

It warms you from the inside out.
The spiciness is almost non-existent, similar to sweet Shaoxing wine.
It is very similar to Shaoxing wine. It seems to go well with Chinese food that has a lot of flavor. The warmth of the sake makes it easy to drink, and it moistens your throat. It’s the kind of sake that makes you want to sit under a warm kotatsu and drink it after coming home from a cold day outdoors in the middle of winter.

The perfect accompaniment is a little Cheetara.
