TASTING NOTE: Appearance: Rich Champagne color with pin-dot legs that slowly thicken and amble down the glass. Nose: While quite sweet with light sugars, the bouquet introduces a healthy spiciness, as well as honey, pear, apple and Meyer lemons. Palate: It's in the mouth that the sweetness fairly explodes to bring a full array of candy flavors. Elegant hard-candy flavors parade through with cherry, peach, plums, orange and tangerine. On the edges, butterscotch and banana are detectable. Sipping Milsean, it's difficult not to be reminded of the sugars of Bourbon and rum, but with a Cognac subtly. Finish: The ending, while lasting, is not the riotous affair of the initial palate. Spices return with cinnamon, ginger and licorice. The apple and pear of the nose return, and then you're ready to start again. (Jack Bettridge, cigaraficionado.com, Jan. 22, 2016) Price $ 177.95
