Description: "Great Plan" is one of those sakes that breaks the mold. It's quite a dry brew, but doesn't have the typical sharp, staccato profile of a dry sake. Rather it drinks clean and round and provides a great example of a shimmering sake. The nose is collection of aromas from marshmallow and cream to apple and plums. Hints of cherries and caramel don't arrive until the dead-stop finish.
