Dry Wave has become my "go to sake".
It is not for cooking, it is for sipping, especially while cooking or simply sitting alone.
I had a stroke recently and because I live alone I obviously spend most of my time alone and creature comforts are very important to me. That is one of the reasons I started drinking and collecting sake.
I have never purchased anything bad from Sake Social and "Dry Wave" is beyond description, I recommend to everyone.
I think "Dry Wave" will become one of my "go to" sakes. It is crisp, clean, has multiple taste patterns, is easily paired with many foods. I prefer it cold but it does well warm. It is an excellent choice.
The sake is good, and seldom seen makers.
Would like more info with the package about the included bottles.
We got a bottle each of this one and the Nigori. I prefer Nigori, but my wife and her bestie like Junmai. Honestly none of us could pick between the two, they were both extremely smooth and just sweet enough. Super enjoyable; would definitely buy again.
I prefer Nigori, so I was excited to try this one. We got a bottle each of this and the Junmai and we all loved them both. This Nigori was quite pleasant and smooth; would definitely buy again.
I brought a bottle of this to a game night for a group tasting and everyone was afraid of shochu from past experiences. This one really surprised the group; super tasty to start and has a really fun aftertaste at the end.
My wife got a bottle of this for a girls' night and absolutely loved it. They said it tasted like a rosé to them; sweet, but not too sweet. I had a sip and found it tame and enjoyable.
Got a bottle of this for a friend's birthday. She loved it, as did her husband who prefers dry saké like this. Rave reviews all around the table. Kanpai!
Like the title said, wonderfully smooth. I'm more of a Nigori person, but several of my Japanophile friends have chosen this saké and have made me a convert. Super smooth and easy to enjoy. There's a reason it's so popular :P
This is a solid Sochu, we tried this with several variations of highballs. The Okinawa method of using coffee -- we added it in an iceball glass with a splash of espresso. Very nice
We tried it was just a smidge of a Vanilla extract that we keep around. Good
We tried it with a splash of cola. Pretty good
Lastly, we tried it with a bit of pepper ume plumb wine to give it a kick. Probably my favorite
Lots of fruits and florals in the base that open up a university of potential combinations. Kamado ginger/garlic scallops with a Sochu Ginger highball was the bomb
I purchased sake and a pair ceramic sake glasses for a Christmas present and recipient was jubilant in receiving the gift.
No instructions Or explanations and no cups and beakers. Both would have been nice
A bit pricey but its well worth it great cold or hot sweet and thick if you got the spare cash layin around for the holidays i definitely recommend
Very strong sesame taste and higher alcohol content. Not one I would drink daily, more of a sip here and there fir me.
If I could give more stars I would. The shipping was fast and the bottle was in great condition. The sipping may seem pricey but I feel it’s worth it. Overall I’m now buying my sake from here only.
