Japanese sake that is 15 years old

Speaking of Kobe and sake brewery, I still have a bottle of sake purchased during that visit in 2005. The bottle has sit on the shelf unopened all this time.

After 15 years, is it still safe for me to use it as a cooking wine? Out of curiosity, I just opened it. It still smelled like sake. How do I tell if it has gone bad?

You can use it for cooking, but it won't taste right for drinking after one year.

I used the sake in a pork (may sub with chicken) recipe that called for 1-cup rice wine, and the dish came out very good with the umami of sake.

Now I should go to local store to buy rice wine for cooking more often.
