90 Points - COFFEE REVIEW 2015
What Coffee Review had to say:
Blind assessment: Crisply sweet, cocoa-toned. Cocoa, baked apple, vanilla bean, elm in aroma and slightly savory cup. Gently rounded acidity; lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Baked apple and elm carry into a sweet-savory finish.
Who should drink it: The slightly savory, baked apple edge makes an argument for a place on the holiday table for this resonant Guatemala Bourbon.
