At Aftertaste events we've become familiar with the general characteristics of junmai, ginjo, daiginjo and yamahai sakes. But how skilled are we at actually tasting the difference? Find out for yourself at this month's Aftertaste Blind Tasting Challenge.
Two of the tasting tables will have 28 bottles laid out in the usual way. But one of the tasting tables will have twelve bottles with no signs and no visible labels. There will be three junmai, three ginjo, three daiginjo and three yamahai sakes. Test yourself and see how well you can identify the sakes by category.
Our sakes this evening will nicely complement Nico's seafood menu. Is it a crisp, clean junmai or a floral ginjo label that brings out the “delish” in your fish. The tasting session will last about an hour, followed by appetizers and congenial sake-sipping until 8:00 p.m. For tickets please go to the Aftertaste Ticket Store or call Pua at 808-222-0195. Attendance is limited to 80 persons.
