Should sake be consumed chilled or warm?
I've never had it before and bought a small bottle this afternoon.

1. I've always had it warmed, but I think you can drink it both ways.

if it's cold outside.

But it's fast acting!

3. As always, James Bond has the answer
Tanaka asks James, "You like Japanese sake, Mr. Bond - or would you like a vodka martini?" James replies, "Oh no, I like sake, especially when it's served at the correct temperature, 98.4F, like this is."

8. Only an uncivilised person would do such a thing
Some culture would be appreciated

4. It used to be strictly warm, but certain kinds now are made to be drunk chilled.
There--that doesn't help at all, does it? :7

6. My pref: Warm in winter, cold in summer.
Damn I kinda miss that.
Haven't had any in about 10 years.
Not since Narita layovers.
Too much was a real skull cracker, though.
:-(

7. Depends on the quality of the sake and personal preference...
I prefer to drink cheap sake warm and expensive sake cold.

9. Some sake is brewed to be served cold
I prefer the toasty varieties myself.
