The SECRET WORD June 2006
Ah, at last we have reached the end of this Newsletter and that of course means that we have come to the now-famous SECRET WORD. To those who are new the SECRET WORD is a chance for you to try a sake of note for half of that sake's original price. Just for reading this Newsletter. It is our way of saying thank you for trying to understand the wonders of sake. And in this regard we typically select a sake with a story, and this month's story is "Surprise!" This is the first time that we have done a "Surprise!" SECRET WORD sake, which is actually one of four special Junmais. Why four? We couldn't pick just one, thus our indecision is your reward. We have also pre-aligned the sakes, meaning they are in order, and as my 5 year-old says "You get what you get and you don't get upset!"
Please remember the rules: only one bottle per reader, and don't tell your buddy at the moment if he/she isn't a Newsletter subscriber, always use a hushed or secret agent voice when saying the SECRET WORD, and lastly for those who have their sakes shipped I can only include the SECRET WORD sake in a four-pack purchase – meaning you must buy three other sakes. These four Junmais usually sell for between $28 and $36 but for you glorious sake-jockeys your cost is $15. And the SECRET WORD is Tokyo Nights!
