Calvados Boulard VSOP is a Calvados from Pays d’Auge produced by traditional methods and aged a minimum of four years. The house of Boulard was founded in 1825 by Pierre-August Boulard, and is still owned by his fifth generation descendant Vincent.
120 different varieties of apple are used in Boulard’s production: their own orchards contribute 20% of the total, while a network of 500 local growers supply the remainder. The cider is double distilled in copper pot stills before ageing in seasoned oak casks.

Review and Tasting


Sampled on 25/01/2016

Appearance:

Clear, golden amber.

Aroma:

Rich apple cider and delicately spiced oak with raisins, hazelnuts and slight brioche.

Taste:

Intensely flavoured with old cider, stewed apple, dry oak and vanilla with almost minty freshness, cinnamon and peppery spice.

Aftertaste:

Stewed apple, vanilla and dry oak with lingering light spice.

Overall:

Lighter, easier and more fruity than longer aged calvados, this is eminently suited to cocktail use as well as for serving neat over ice.
