Ultimate Beverage Challenge 94 points - (Great Value,Tried & True Award)- Orange hue is tinged with ruby coloring. Bouquet is toasty, fruity, ripe, grapy, porty, malty, luscious. Taste profile features the sensuous interplay of the malt with the ruby port and all the dividends that pays. Aftertaste is toasty, biscuity, semisweet. (Mar 2015)
Wine Enthusiast 91 points - While "extra finished” for two years in ruby Port casks, the impact on the spirit is minimal, imparting a rose-gold hue and a shadow of red berry flavor. Though it lacks the "wow factor” of the Nectar d’Or, it’s still quite good: Expect a warm, fruity scent with a hint of cedar and a smooth caramel-honey flavor with baking spices on the finish.
