Akashi-Tai's Junmai Daiginjo Genshu is luxury sake brewed from Yamadanishiki rice milled to 38% (62% removed).

A brewmaster watches over the koji for 72 hours without sleeping to ensure the quality of this sake.

Review and Tasting

Sampled on 29/04/2021


Crystal clear.


Delicate and aromatic. Ripe pear skin, green apple, honeydew melon, white flower blossom, and acacia honey.


Delicate, complex, generous, and yet restrained. Slightly sweet entry before drying with faint saltiness and flinty minerality. Ripe pear skin, papaya and crisp green apple with faint aniseed, white flower blossom, lychee, cut grass, sweet hay, and orange oils.


Ripe pear dries in the long finish with fades with delicately salty mineral notes.


Refined delicate ripe fruit and complex minerality and delicate cleansing crisp acidity.
