Ultimate Beverage Challenge 91 points - Warm aromas of roasted nuts, nutmeg and prunes are inviting on the nose. In the mouth it is sweet with caramel and toffee flavors, dried fruits and roasted chestnuts. Nicely tangy and dry on the finish with a long lingering nuttiness. (Apr 2014)
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 93 points - Tawny-golden hue. The nose is filled with caramel and nutty aromas, with a touch of quince paste. Almost Madeira like, a salty-sweet element ensues, along with roasted hazelnuts and an earthy-honeyed quality. A delicious aperitif.
