Wine Enthusiast 95 points - Aged in a series of barrels-first American oak, then transferred to a former oloroso Sherry cask and finished in used Cabernet Sauvignon barriques-this Scotch would be an outstanding dessert accompaniment too. Look for dusty cocoa and lots of Sherried dark fruit, like figs and dates, wrapped in caramel and baking tones that linger on the spicy finish..Kara Newman, December/2015
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 93 points - Velvety in texture, with delicate layers of hazelnut toffee, sea salt and milk chocolate. Orange wood and dusty dried herb emerge upon further sipping. A densely-structured collection of flavors in an attractive, eminently drinkable package..April/2016
This specially crafted whisky has been expertly made to be the perfect accompaniment to a fine cigar. Matured initially in American white ak ex-bourbon casks and 30 year old Matusalem oloroso sherry butts, it is then finessed in Cabernet Sauvignon wine barriques.
