Ultimate Beverage Challenge 95 points - Smells of smoky, burnt nectarine, apricot and buttery scents that are toasty, nutty and heavenly. Entry is chewy, viscous, concentrated and intensely honeyed; the midpalate is waxy, mildly spicy, jammy, nutty and utterly decadent. Finishes with panache and grace.

Ultimate Spirits Challenge 2011 Finalist. Huge jammy, sweet aromas leap from the glass; taste profile highlights flavors of sweet wine, oaky tannins, prunes and dried herbs; luscious. (Mar 2011)
