What the judges said: A rich, powerful, aromatic brandy, exotic fruits explode on the palate and reveal themselves. Super long and a superlative acidity promising an even longer life. More aging would not be detrimental but the spirit is gorgeous as is! Absolutely terrific! A quite elegant and powerful nose of violet, honeysuckle and lemon. Amazing length and balance, a true work of art for US brandy. Fantastic!
