95 pts. : January 26, 1999

Deep amber-orange hue. Pungent spice and herb aromas. A smooth, mildly sweet attack leads to a medium-bodied, mildly viscous palate. Complex, lingering finish. Intense, warming and unique. A classic.

A blend of original Benedictine and Cognac. Smells assertively of herbs, honey, quinine and baking spices with added aromas of black tea and tobacco. Entry tastes of tea, sage, fennel and a touch of quinine; the Cognac emerges at midpalate, lending a layer of elegance and genuine distillate presence. Finishes like a champion, long, semisweet, intensely herbal, mildly spicy and satiny.

A blend of original Benedictine and cognac. The auburn/bronze/burnt orange color is gorgeous and ideally sediment-free. Smells assertively of herbs (fennel, sage, licorice), honey, quinine, and baking spices (mace, allspice, cardamom) straight out of the starting gate; aeration stimulates further leafy vegetative aromas, most notably, black tea and tobacco. Entry tastes of tea, sage, fennel and a deft touch of root-like quinine; at midpalate the cognac enters the equation and lends an obvious layer of elegance and genuine distillate presence. Finishes like a champion, long, semisweet, intensely herbal, mildly spicy, and satiny. Worthy of a hike in rating.

: October, 2000

Beautiful, nutty aromas of almonds and hazelnuts, with licorice, cherry and toffee. minty flavors and lemon, with bitter leaves, chocolate and slight heat; slight lemon hint in the smooth finish.
