"A fine nose. Fresh, light and lively. The discretion on the nose is surpassed by its finesse. A dreamy aromatic palate. On the entry there is a hint of sweetness that is replaced by warmth. Sawdust, charcoal, white flowers, woody spicy notes. There is a nice balance despite the alcohol which leads to a brandy with finesse."

"A nose that is mysterious. Rather than the typical vanilla, flora, woody spicy, we have something that is unique: candied flowers, cream and cheesecake crust. The attack is suave and there is a feeling of off-dry sweetness. If unsweetened, as per appellation laws, there is a nice balance of sweet-like flavors and discretion. There is no overly charred wood here. Nothing is overly exuberant. A brandy that should communicate finesse in all ways."

"A nose that announces with medium intensity and aromas of sweet spice like vanilla and cinnamon with pastry aromas of flan and vanilla. The nose is hedonistic. The attack is warming and there is body on the mid-palate with a great deal of length. Nice balance and character. Well-made."
