***** Highest Recommendation, F. Paul Pacult (Spirit Journal): "Attractive and bright pale yellow/gold color; superb purity. Initial sniffs offer highlights of marshmallow, vanilla, oaky and sawdust; secondary sniffs following seven minutes of aeration feature the vanilla aspect as well as leafy/floral notes not noticed in the first inhalations; a smashingly lovely and elegant bouquet. Entry is firm, delightfully oily, mildly peppery and oaky sweet; midpalate is elegant, slightly toasty, medium viscous, herbal and delicate sweet. Finishes softly, with a sweet oak ending. I'm gladly upping the ante on the rating to five stars. Exquisitely tasty. (Sep 2012)"
