  • Four Stars, "Highly Recommended," F. Paul Pacult's Spirit Journal, Dec. 2012

F. Paul Pacult's notes:

Pretty topaz color; excellent purity. Opening inhalations detect linseed oil, walnut shell and caramel corn; later sniffs following another six minutes of aeration encounter scents of butcher?s wax paper, lard, nutmeg and unbuttered popcorn. Entry is pleasantly spicy and bake shop sweet and spicy (vanilla, cinnamon); midpalate is corny sweet, butter/creamy and honeyed. Finish is extended, bittersweet, and like chocolate covered almonds.
