      Comment: Very intense. I love this one a lot and I'm quickly becoming a Craigellachi convert! Not worth the $150 pricetag in the states, but it's actually cheaper to get from Europe so I'd order from there. Well worth $100. A lot to enjoy here. Virtually no alcohol, so it's easy to pick out the notes.
