    Having being obsessed with anime for the last year, I really want to try sake. However I don't know where to start; a lot of sites seem to suggest that most sake imported to the west tends to be the lower quality stuff, plus there seems to be a very broad range of sake available on the internet. Sooooo anyone here a sake drinker? And if so any advice on what to get?

    tbh it's nothing special, though I've never been to Japan to try out the high quality stuff.

    Yess! Ohmygod, sake is the sh*t. You can drink it two ways - cold or warm. I, personally, like warm, but cold is good for those hot days too. However, you've really got to spend for the good stuff. Cheap sake is just like cheap whiskey - sacrilegious.

    The only thing I know about sake is that you drink the cheap stuff hot to numb the taste, but good sake is best drunk cold. Never had it, but I'd definitely try it.

    Yeah apparently if you heat it up it sort of gets rid of the sake's impurities, but equally it makes all sake taste the same, so heating up good stuff is a waste. I also read that you can get quite good stuff for only £15 - you don't have to spend an enormous amount for quality, well, apparently lol. But, problem is, what is the quality stuff and what is the crap stuff?

    Recently went to Japan and bought loads of Sake. It turns out that I bought a variety of it, ranging in price from 4500 yen (about £45) to 199 yen. In my opinion, drinking it hot is significantly better than cold!

    It says it's 40% onmost of the bottles but tastes mildly sweet and very much like wine made from grapes, although it doesn't have the fruitiness obviously. However it does go down very well and I couldn't help myself from having another glass!

    I've found that imported sake doesn't taste as good as what's sold in Japan. I bought some whilst I was in Japan and compared to what is available here, the Japanese variant is the shiz

    Sake is a bit meh tbh, and I've had it in Japan. Their beer was much nicer, it had the concistency of Calpol but was beer.
