Deep and amazing sake world!
Sake is most unique and amazing alcohol in world.
The taste and scent changes by its temperature drastically.
Most of people drink it by cold temperature, same as in fridge, then you feel dry, sometimes sharp, taste with soft sweetness. Some people call it Rice Wine, yes it is like wine when you drink it cold. I would suggest foreigners to try Sake this way first.
Next, please try hot Sake, Kan-Zake.
There are several Kan-Zake styles, Atsu-kan, Nuru-kan and Kanzamashi.
Atsu-kan is hot, the temparature is like soup, Nuru-kan temparature is same as human skin, it is said, and Kanzamashi is the one that Atsu-kan lost its hot temperature.
Every kinds taste varies.
You can enjoy rich aroma and “koji” (malted rice) taste from Kan-Zake.
