Wine Enthusiast 94 points – Aged in charred barrels, this robust, nut-brown sipper has rich cocoa, toffee and caramel aromatics. It’s dry and complex on the palate, with notes of toffee, espresso, cigar wrapper and leather. It finishes bold and spicy, with a burst of alcohol heat that calls for a splash of branchwater. – K.N. (Nov 2015)
NOSE: Deeper oak background with sweet maple notes. PALATE: Creamy, ‘velvety’, dried fruit notes, mainly fig. FINISH: Deeper bourbon notes and smooth at a higher proof.
