I'd buy some but...

Having the sake shipped from Forest Grove, to California to Beaverton is a very long trip. I'd just rather visit the place myself, I mean the trip is only 25 minutes.

When will Woot! offer a no shipping option?

That said the water does really taste good here, Bull Run is very good to the residents.

tastes great and it is an awesome product for the price/quality.

What's up with all these holidays? Pinot noir has a day, August 18th to be exact, and wine.woot didn't do anything about it! Maybe we can fix the flux capacitor, hit 88mph, and revisit that forgotten day. Or maybe I just need a pair of Nike's that cost a few thousands to get the job done

Don't these usually sell for $12-$13? Doesn't seem to be a very good deal for an average sake.

Ah, so many questions...
SMV; what is a Saki Meter Value?
Been drinking sake for over 30 years and first I've ever heard of it.
Are these 750's? I've seen 500, 720, 750 1000 and 1500 (yeah, that would rock!) but don't see the volume listed. What traditional Japanese sake might this compare to? Hopefully none of the generally terrible CA offerings...

WRT price, $60 for a 1.5L of quality Japanese sake doesn't even phase me; store price, not restaurant.

Oh, and I drink all but nigori cold in a masu.

Q16: What is the nihonshu-do, or Sake Meter Value? This is a measure of the density of the sake relative to water. It is a very general reference to the sweetness or dryness of a sake. Note, however, that acid content and water hardness and temperature and other factors also contribute a great deal to the concept of sweet and dry.

Ok, so I'm a beer geek, and I love wine, but I am a saké novice. What do I taste for? What are the optimum serving temperatures, and does this vary from one to the next in a reliable way by category or other determinant?

Fortunately, I've been meaning to get into this fine rice beer, and hence this is my second woot in a week.

The offer really should state the volume of each bottle. Sake can be pretty darned expensive, frankly; six 750ml bottles of decent sake at this price is pretty phenomenal. It is decent, right?

I'm a labrat!!!! Caveat being I'm not really good at distinguishing flavors and breaking it down. So I hope I don't disappoint.

Anywa, I received 2 bottles, Pearl (Nigori) and Organic Nigori. I received the package and put in the refrigerator to chill. And according to the direction, I shook the bottle and poured both out to try without food.

The Pearl is creamier, whiter and murkier looking. The Organic Nigori seemed to be a little clearer. Both smelled the same to me.

Regarding taste, Pearl was a little grainier in the mouthfeel. It is tasty and has a bit of a bite to it. Kinda expected for 18% for me. Couldn't really figure out the underlying taste but it is yummy. My mother in law and father in law both liked this better than the Organic Nigori.

The Organic Nigori is smoother to me although my mother in law thought the Pearl was smoother. It doesn't have that grainy taste to me. Both my husband and I liked this one better.

Both were a little sweet and my in laws thought Pearl was sweeter than the Organic Nigori.

We made some chicken teriyaki and I tried it with food. It went really well with the food. It was refreshing and complemented the salty chicken dish. When I put some sriracha sauce on the chicken and drank some sake, it went well with the spiciness of the sauce.

Well, hope this helps. Sorry for not being able to really break down the components of the sake. I really like both bottles though.

750ml bottles. I'm a total sake snob, these make the cut and I was truly blown away by their quality.

it would be good if the sale said but the manufacturer only has 750ml size of this sake on their website.

i only see 'serve' on the last bottle of sake. is this all chilled, hot, both?

$3 x 6 = $18 discount not considering shipping = about a 25% discount. Pretty good, IMO. And what makes you say it's an "average saké"? Have you had it? Tasted a large number of sakés? Want to share some knowledge?

That link doesn't work, but from the text, that's for 4 bottles? This woot is for 6.

Noticed the size after the post. Seems like they must be 750's.

Many drink sake hot, but I find the true flavor can be best appreciated when consumed cold from the traditional cedar wooden box, a masu. Quality sake drinks like slightly sweet water and is about as close to nirvana in a beverage as I've found.

How is this not a good deal? Average of $10 per bottle for bottles that usually go for $12.00-$13.50. Seems to me you are getting a greater than 20% discount.

Then there is shipping. You'd pay at least $15 to have it shipped from SakeOne directly.

These are definitely better than average sake. I've had couple other sakeone sakes in the past and they are really good.

I get this in Portland quite a bit. It is good quality sake with a modest woot discount. With the cost of the shipping you are saving between $3-$4 a bottle, depending where you live.

most beer geeks really enjoy a well made sake! Go for it! Pending on the bottle, you can find many similarities in Junmai and Ginjo Sakes that you like in a good micro-brew beer.

I could write a book on what to look for, I suggest you start with sake that is labeled Junmai and start with Ginjo grade levels this level often has bigger flavors.

Each sake will taste different, some more floral, stony and mineral driven, & tropical and melon flavors are typical. Serve chilled like you would a cold beer or white wine.

No Wisconsin this time? Why aren't we on the list? Please tell me this is some sort of typo. Very upsetting. I got this last time in '08 and was not disappointed. I was hoping to get it this time as well.

if ever visiting the portland area, the "sakery" tour is really informative and fun. They give you the full rundown and then some, and I felt like I had just graduated sake school when I walked out. I thought I heard them say they are the only sake brewery (distillery?) in the US, but I could be mistaken. I'm not sure how purists receive sake one, but I personally have no problem supporting them - they do it up right.

True, only $6 savings... until you count the $17.05 savings on shipping (at least for here in Texas; varies state-to-state). So yeah, $23 off ain't a bad deal in my opinion.

$66.00 + $24.89 shipping to NY

$64.99 woot vs $90.89 website, not a bad deal
