39 Sakes in 39 Days:   Day 25 Seven Spearsmen (warm)


We are celebrating Ten Thousand Waves’ 39th birthday with 39 sakes in 39 days at their lovely Japanese restaurant, Izanami.  Today we wrap up our conversation about how temperature affects sake taste.  What we’ve learned is that sake temperature preference is highly personal and to be honest, I don’t think I can ever go back to drinking warm sake.  Because Izanami chooses premium sakes to serve, I find that it just tastes better served cold.

Our 25th sake is Seven Spearsmen (warm).  This was my least favorite temperature for Seven Spearsmen of all three temperatures.  This is an earthy sake with hints of melon and mushrooms and it paired nicely with Chef Kiko’s  shrimp kabobs.

And now you can taste Seven Spearsmen (warm) and the other fabulous sakes in this week’s flight.  In celebration of the 39th anniversary of the Waves, they bring you 39 sakes to enjoy each week featuring a different aspect of sake.  Taste the weekly flight from now until March 8th and get a stamp in your sake passport.  Collect stamps and win fantastic prizes!  On Fridays, go to santafe.com/contests/honeys-sake-symposium to enter our contest where you name all of the 5 sakes I’ve talked about that week (hint: you can read my blogs in case you missed hearing me talk about them).  On Mondays, we will draw one correct entry and that person will receive two $39 gift certificates to Izanami and a private hot tub for two at Ten Thousand Waves.  On March 9th we will draw our grand prize winner and that person will receive a complete therapeutic massage for two, a private hot tub for two, a multi-course dinner for two at Izanami and an overnight stay at Ten Thousand Waves.  We’re celebrating 39 years of Ten Thousand Waves- your passport to relaxation, from your friends at 98-1 Radio Free Santa Fe.
