90- 95 Points No wallflower, this one. The intensity of the bouquet starts right with the pour as waves of prunes and raisins rise from the glass; air contact stirs deeper aromas, most notably orange rind, peppermint and roasted nuts. This rich, heavyweight brandy features layers of flavor, including cocoa, toffee, caramel, cream Sherry and oaky vanilla. Finishes as large and robust as it started. Range: 90-95

Its appearance is bright, transparent dark mahogany with copper glints. 

On the nose it is clean, elegant and well-rounded with hints of the Sherry which seasoned the barrels.

On the palate it is beautifully balanced, warming and smooth while it has a very long finish where all the subtle nuances come together leaving a lasting impression of personality with hints of raisin and prune. Winemaker Description.
