This sake reveals subtle aromas of beeswax, woody notes, white flowers and grapefruit, heralding an explosion of flavors on the palate for a rich, complex sensory experience. Its lively yet surprisingly creamy attack reveals intense umami and concentrated flavors that envelop the palate in a symphony of delights to leave a delicate, lingering imprint.

Akashi Tai Honjozo Genshu Tokubetsu is a genshu, meaning that no water is added at the end of fermentation, giving it remarkable concentration and a powerful alcohol content of 19°. More full-bodied and with a higher alcohol content than traditional sakes, it is perfect to enjoy toasted as an accompaniment to white meat dishes, revealing all its power and complexity.
