Beverage Testing Institute 91 points - (Great Value,Tried & True Award)- Old gold/bronze coloring. Toasted marshmallow, oatmeal, spirity aromas abound in this generous fragrance that’s hearty and assertive, ending in a roasted peanut scents that’s appealing. Flavor-wise, there’s a piquant element of black pepper that fades by midpalate, leaving the door open for cornmeal, caramel corn, treacle, marzipan. Long, roasted finish is attractive and robust.
Beverage Tasting Institute Rated 91 Points
Interesting aromas of freshly waxed wood, saddle soap, suede, tapioca and pecan nougat with a round, supple, dry-yet-fruity medium-full body and a long, dried fruit, roasted nut, grainy pastry dough, mint leaf, cola, sassafras, peppery spice, and mineral ore accented finish. Very distinctive, intricate, and stylish.
