An acquired taste I am sure. The recipe this was purchased for ended up bitter and very salty. The product arrived with no issues.
I live in an area that doesn’t have any Japanese markets or grocers nearby. There’s a few Korean grocers in the town but with limited Japanese products. So when I saw Gotham Market on FB being advertised I went online right away and spent the better part of my day just browsing the products. When I saw this cooking sake I was so happy! I ordered it and am so glad I did. I’ve used it for sukiyaki, oden, and Japanese stews.
