95 Points Wine Enthusiast - Bouquet is semisweet and prune-like; several minutes of aeration unleashes much deeper scents of honeydew melon, cantaloupe, roasted almonds and apple butter. The palate entry is full bodied, generous and sweet; at midpalate, the flavor profile turns satiny as scintillating tastes of black cherry, black coffee and Macadamia nut blanket the tongue. Aftertaste is extended, smoky and luscious.
Deep copper chestnut aromas. Polished, high toned aromas of buttery caramel, artisan chocolate covered apricots and apples, anise, and roasted nuts. A rich yet supple entry leads to a dry-yet-fruity full body of dense dried fruit, nut, sweet spice, chocolate, and cigar box flavors. Finishes with an exceptionally long finish of toffee, leather, chocolate covered espresso bean, anise cookies, tobacco, and lavish brown spices. A gentle giant of a cognac to contemplate and savor. An ideal cigar Cognac. - Beverage Tasting Institute
