The SECRET WORD February 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. For those that 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 "Big Mountain." We have selected our first Nigori to offer you good readers, and we have done so for good reason. Typically Nigori tends to be fluffy and sweet, but Ohyama from Yamagata Prefecture makes an unfiltered sake that drinks incredibly dry.
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. Ohyama Nigori usually sells for $16/500ml but for you glorious sake-jockeys your cost is $8. And the SECRET WORD is Foggy-Sake.
