    Genshu is sake that is undiluted and typically high in alcohol; to make a whiskey analogy, think of Genshu as "cask strength". High ABV aside, Akashi Tai's Genshu Honjozo takes the subtle flavors and light structure of their Honjozo and dials it way up. It has the same same toasted cereal grain and savory flavors in that sake but there is lots more of it. More structure on the palate too... while the diluted version is light and easy drinking, the Genshu has the umami, acidity, and flavor intensity to stand up to more robust foods or to sip slowly and savor. Great served at any temperature. A versatile sake if you can stand the 19% ABV heat!
