Back in the Jurassic era, as a young man, I used to love drinking sake. We thought of sake as "rice Wine." My wife, a stewardess with Pan Am, introduced me to sake. We would enjoy it with sushi and on our frequent trips with friends to Benihana's. Nowadays, I usually stick to bourbon or rye-but I am planning on attending the tasting this Sunday. CF Sharp MD
