Ultimate Beverage Challenge 97 points - Dried cherries and apricots intermix with caramel on the slightly smoked nose. It is rich and spicy in the mouth with dark notes of coffee, chocolate and caramel flavors. The mouthfeel is smooth and coating. Rich and complex. (Apr 2014)
Wine Enthusiast 96 points - Opening bouquet offers sedate fragrances of dried flowers and malted barley; aeration stimulates marginally bigger aromas of dried yellow fruit (baked banana), toasty oak barrel and still-vigorous spirit. Palate entry is succulent, honeyed and luscious; midpalate tastes of dates, figs, S’mores, cocoa butter, nougat and dark fudge. Finishes oily, buttery, honey-sweet and focused.
