Oh, please get something good. GS store sake can easily be plonk, and you may get a horrible impression of what quality sake tastes like. And DON'T heat it, drink chilled!

LOL! Well, it was purchased for cooking. It was not offensive, just kind of boring. Like a weak martini. I didn't find inspiration from it, but maybe next time I'll buy a nicer bottle and learn the meaning of life.

Sure didn't see this one coming.
Best I just unplug from the inter-webs for a day or so.

You already feasted up. Whatever you could find at the grocery store likely isn't very good. Especially if it was under 12 bucks.

Get the SakeOne stuff. Excellent, excellent starter stuff (and just all around excellent regardless). It's easy to find (generally), is inexpensive and will teach you all you need to know about quality Sake. If you have a HuHot restaurant around you can get a flight of all their Momokawa line for like 6 bucks.

this is the first year for us. We normally get thurs. and fri. off. Then the last 2 years we got wed-fri off. So this is nice.
