  • “There are less expensive Macons; there may be greater Macons, but we feel there is no finer Macon for the money.”

    "A little smoke, hazelnut, quince and unripe pineapple. It's fresh and tangy in the mouth, with a touch of creaminess, but boy is it dry and neatly tucked in. A dry flinty/chalky character is a dominant trait here, but I like its verve and lightness. some zesty green apple tang on the finish. Good."
