Ultimate Beverage Challenge 93 points - Hearty aromas of charred cedar, smoked meats, vanilla, hazelnut and dark chocolate covered cherries rise from the glass. Mouth-filling and deep with amazingly complex flavors of caramelized onion, peat and grapefruit. Dark chocolate lingers on the finish with a delicate smokiness. (Apr 2014)
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 92 points - Wonderfully smoky on the nose, reminiscent of smoked meats, vanilla, toasted oak, baked cherries and ripe apricot make a cameo as well. Once in the mouth, it is soft and mellow with vanilla, brown sugar, baked cherries and subtle orange zest flavors. On the finish it is smooth and long with dark chocolate and vanilla notes.
