The Sake experience this year didn’t have as many types of sake to try as last year however there was a lot more variety with what was available. Like last time there was free cheddar cheese and crackers to help pace the alcoholic content that comes with 25 shots of sake in a short time-span.
One that stood out for me was the Funaguchi Kikusui despite coming in a can had a very bold flavour to it which went well with the dried bacon bits they were giving out it was definitely my favourite in the summer barbecue category and maybe even overall.
I also saw the return of my favourite sake from last year the Sho Chiku Bai Shirakabegura MIO sparkling sake which had a very sweet taste to it almost like a sorbet yet it didn’t feel like it was trying to be a soft drink as it still very much had the deep taste of sake. I even bought a bottle this time.
