**** (a world-class spirit representing the pinnacle of its type) "Intense entry with layer after layer of shimmering flavours; superb". Anthony DIAS BLUE (USA) The Complete book of Spirits - Harpers Collins Publisher
"I tasted a 25 years old blend that , were I connoisseur, I would call lush, round and spicy".

"The 2002 Challenge showed how well our formula was worked. Entries rose by over 200 to more than 500 with the widest possible spread of spirits. Typically, although the Trophy for the best brandy went to a Cognac - the lovely Frapin - the only other Gold Medal in the category went to a Calvados, the 25 Years Old "Coeur de Lion", and a grappa, Pilzer's Grappa di Schiava".
