"88/100 - Deep honey, gold with hint of copper. Fine nose that smells of spices, tobacco and cooked apples. Rich and round in the mouth that reveals a spicy flavour. Lovely length".

Spirit Journal December 2008 - Paul Pacult (USA) - Rated as highly recommended ****

"The chestnut colour is pure, flawless, and very attractive. Following the pour, the nose emits tightly structured, close-knit scents of pear, apples, and wax; after additional aeration, the aroma evolves into a full-fledged brandy bouquet as lean scents of resin, baked apple, and vinyl take charge; not a voluptuous aroma but compelling all the same. The palate entry is a study of controlled sweetness/ripeness while the midpalate phase displays a more generous face in the forms of baked apple, fruity pastry, pipe tobacco, new honey, and oak. Ends crisp, properly acidic, and with baked flavours of fruit, nuts, and nougat".
