THE COLOUR : Splendid mahogany
THE NOSE : The wonderful, heady aromatic tang, borne of
long wood ageing is immediately compelling. This gives way to hints of wood, dried fruits & tobacco - very rich and generous.
THE PALATE: An extremely appetising cognac, opulent,
rounded and yet vivacious. Pepper & spices emerge initially before revealing dark chocolate and fresh herbs. Complex, it shows supreme finesse, supple opulence and very good length.
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 95 points - Dark purple cooked fruits on the nose pave the way for even-handed jammy notes of blackberry and currant that emerge on the palate. The profoundly earthy, dry finish is a reminder of how the long aging time shaped this beauty. (Apr 2016)
