| Ultimate Beverage Challenge 95 points (Mar 2013)
Gold amber hue. A seductive nose revealing smoke, dried pineapple and ginger aromas. Sweet sherry flavors weave in and out of the palate, with dried tropical fruit character and a nice amount of peat. The finish is dry, with perceptible oak tannins. A treat to the senses.
Vibrant orange-amber color and a warm, citrusy scent. Expect lots of honey and caramel from the get-go, winding into an interestingly dry and lingering finish entwining leather, cocoa, coconut and ginger. Good value.
