Sake is a living thing, especially the unpasteurized Sake is vibrantly growing in the bottle. So, the taste is changing slowly in the fridge. After opening the bottle, the change of taste progress more rapidly, however, the change itself is one of the attractive things of appreciating Sake.
The taste & aroma of day first, day third, one week and one month are entirely different. That is the evidence the Sake is growing.
Sometimes, you may think the taste of just opened Sake is too hard. If you prefer the fresh and sharp taste, it’s great to enjoy it as it is.
However, the real characteristic of Sake sometimes is closed inside and it opens by being oxidized.
So, if you think it’s too hard and you prefer the roundish and well-balanced taste, please leave it in the fridge for a few days. But, we know it’s very tough to suppress the strong emotion to drink the Sake in front of you.
In this case, please give it a try the wine technic “Decantage”. By being oxidized quickly, the taste of Sake gets softer and more roundish, and the aroma stands out.
Let’s give it a try and find out which taste you prefer!
