Wine Enthusiast 92 points - The deep fig and raisin aromas hint that the palate will be equally deep and dark. Bold toffee, cocoa, fig and gingerbread round into a spiced, brisk finish. Consider as a dessert pairing..Kara Newman, December/2015
Ultimate Spirits Challenge 93 points - Figgy pudding and date syrup are sweet but not cloying on the nose. The flavors are soft and subtle, layered with baking spices like cinnamon and nutmeg. Baked apples and a mild nuttiness characterize the finish..March/2017
