Ask Beau - "What sake is your favorite?"

Posted by Beau Timken in 2010, Ask Beau, January, Newsletter
Beau Timken I have heard it for years Nancy B from Santa Fe, New Mexico. And it is a question that I loathe answering. But what is ironic I used to ask the same question to my sake heroes and teachers. I would frame it differently - "If you were on a plane and it crashed on an island and one case of sake floated up to the island - what would that sake be?" "You committed a horrible crime and you get to select your last meal - what sake would be your pre-electrocution brew?" "Your daughter is getting married - what sake would you select for the toast?"

My answer?

Not giving it!

But I have been on record saying that I would like to be embalmed in Kikuhime BY Daiginjo.
