93 points and 'Top 50 Spirits 2011,' Wine Enthusiast: "17% abv. A light, breezy apéritif for white wine lovers. This golden-orange liquid has a tart apple and citrus scent, with a touch of honeysuckle behind that, and a honeyed flavor with a dry, faintly spiced finish. Light-bodied and drinkable, made even more so with the addition of lime juice and club soda. Pair with cheese or charcuterie. (Feb 2011)"

**** Highly Recommended (Spirit Journal): "Golden raisin color; perfect clarity. First nosings pick up the indelible smell of ripe grapes and kiwi, plus some tropical fruit notes, like banana and guava; further aeration brings out a subtle spiciness that rounds out the bouquet in style. Palate entry is luscious, gently fruity/grapy, and keenly acidic, resulting in a remarkably fresh opening taste; midpalate taste profile features kiwi, white grapes, raisins, and a viny/brambly vegetal quality that keeps the ripe fruit in line. Ends up ripe, delicately spiced, and delicious. Always a favorite of mine and as I get older, I appreciate all the more the Blanc's completeness. Deserves the elevation in rating."
