The right most bottle was the most tasty
Was interesting to experience a wide range of sake. Definitely helps starters like me discover what I prefer.
I was introduced to this sake tasting by one of my friends and I was pleasantly surprised by the high quality curation of this set. Normally I avoid straying from my usual known brands as we all know sake is relatively diverse in taste and I want to avoid the mistake of a bad purchase. This sampler set introduces me to a whole new segment of sake that I've not tasted before.
Excellent tasting set
I like this series of tasting set. Especially the wood cask Sake. Very interesting as always. Totally enjoyed the tasting set.
