95 POINTS - Tasting Panel 2022, 2021

95 POINTS - Somm Journal 2022

"All manners of orange are here, with orange peel, Creamsicle, and a hint of orange soda right up front. This citrus is joined by sweeter elements: a drizzle of maple syrup and inviting wood spice. The palate is creamy, and that tangy, zesty citrus carries on, though there’s also blueberry cobbler, a burst of Red Hots, and buttered toast sprinkled with sugar and cinnamon. A moderate-length finish balances oak with tart red fruit."      - Whisky Advocate

"The nose presents a mild, toffee sweetness with a leathery edge (almost like suede) and secondary notes of peanut shells and subtle orange peel. The palate is light and sweet with ample candied citrus, mild baking spice, and a bit of barrel char, leading to a pleasant, if slightly drying, conclusion showcasing rye spice and ripe peach."                   - Drinkhacker

"Restrained oak and baking spice aromas lead into a drying palate. Oak is framed with hints of grapefruit pith, plum skin and fruit leather, finishing with warming cinnamon and clove heat." - Wine Enthusiast
