Review and Tasting
Sampled on 06/02/2012
Clear, topaz colour with gold and amber tones.
Wonderfully refined with cinnamon and mandarin, along with the leather aromas characteristic of an old Cognac.
Velvety, honeyed and complex with mature Cognac – figs, dried prunes and maple syrup immediately apparent. Wood and vanilla accents with bitter marmalade and orange zest.
More subtle hints of lemon, cinnamon and bitter almond add depth and interest.
