95 POINTS – THE TASTING PANEL
“Scents of violets, cherry peppered white petals of freesia and a honeyed white grapefruit are some of the olfactory music coming from the glass of this 80-proof Texan. The pepper gains ground on the palate, along with grapefruit rind and an elaborate bunch of blue flowers. The finish of vanilla and bread dough adds textural buoyancy.”
