"No wallflower, this one. The intensity of the bouquet starts right with the pour as waves of prunes and raisins rise from the glass; air contact stirs deeper aromas, most notably orange rind, peppermint and roasted nuts. This rich, heavyweight brandy features layers of flavor, including cocoa, toffee, caramel, cream Sherry and oaky vanilla. Finishes as large and robust as it started." —P.P., Wine Enthusiast Magazine

"Deep mahogany hue. Rich, sweet coffee, spice, and chocolate aromas leads to a oily, fruity sweet full-bodied palate with dried tropical fruits, mocha, roasted nuts, salt, and rancioed oloroso sherry notes. Finishes a lengthy, slightly tart, spicy, molasses and wood note fade. A complex and lavish Spanish brandy." —Beverage Testing Institute
