It’s Saké O’Clock! – Wakatake Junmai Daiginjo Onikoroshi “Demon Slayer”
Saké, it’s the new black! Seriously, saké seems to have come into fashion in the US as of late and rightly so. Once you dive into the world of saké you see that it is as interesting, complex and varied as wine.

The Mr. and I have been afficionados for years and have come to take our love rather seriously. We often get asked by curious friends about our favorite saké. Below is one of our old faithfuls; relatively easy to find, mid priced (retail; price is often doubled in a restaurant) and always delicious. Now remember, premium saké is meant to be enjoyed chilled and this one is very easy to drink; dry, floral bouquet with a hint of melon. Enjoy!
