****Highly Recommended, F. Paul Pacult (Spirit Journal): "Pale gold/flax/straw color; unblemished clarity. Initial whiffs pick up delectable and fresh yellow fruits, especially green apple and Bosc pear; aeration stimulates deeper scents including poppy seed, parchment, apricot, and new leather. Entry is surprisingly composed, honeyed, dry, and luscious for what I have to think is a young cognac; the taste profile at midpalate displays many delicious flavors, such as honey, vanilla bean, pork sausage, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Finishes with oodles of finesse, elegance, and component integration. The best VS out there at present. A superior value."
