***** Highest Recommendation, F. Paul Pacult (Spirit Journal): "Deep golden/honey bronze hue; excellent clarity. A no-nonsense bouquet of authentic depth and quality. The taste profile intensity builds substantially from entry to midpalate, Finish-wise, a seductive maple-like flavor closes the circle on the taste stages in a way that's both stirring and classy. A clinic on what small batch straight bourbon can be."
93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Aromas are sweet and fruitcake-like, with faint cigar smoke. Restrained, subtle flavors of orange peel, cinnamon and leather ride a medium-to-heavy body. The finish is extremely smooth, with a touch of anise. (Sep 2010)"
