Sake Vibes - Blind sailing (no… not blind drunk)
In early April I had the incredible pleasure of meeting Scott Duncan a fellow sake lover and all around great person. Scott came into the store to buy some nigori sake that he loves dearly. We spoke for several minutes before I noticed that Scott was "technically" blind. I told him that I thought that he had a leg up on me when it comes to tasting sake as I feel that when one sense is removed –like sight - it makes your taste sense all the more acute. I don't know if Scott bought this but he told me that he enjoys sake on his sailing boat. He then explained that he is currently in the process of sailing around the globe blind. He and another blind sailor Pamela Habek are trying to become the first blind sailors to do so, and if you are at all interested they have akiller website that allows you to follow them real time. By all means shoot them an email and tell them that your friends at True Sake told you about them. Truly incredible.
