Ultimate Beverage Challenge 94 points - Combines the depth and complexity of fine grappa and sherry with briny, Muscat-like aromas blended with toasted walnut and ripe mango. Exquisitely textured with ripe apricot giving way to a delicate smokiness and deeper salty flavors. Finishes strong and effortlessly with an underlying minerality. (Apr 2014)
Wine Enthusiast 96 points - The luscious Speyside bouquet offers layers of aromas that include smoke, wood, touches of palm oil, browned butter, vanilla bean and pork rind. The palate entry is rich, bittersweet, caramel-like and creamy; at the wonderful midpalate the taste turns sweeter, nuttier and more fudge-like. Finishes elegantly, yet very focused, and integrated. Delicious.
