Review and Tasting

Sampled on 04/05/2015

Appearance

Clear, deep golden amber with burnished copper glints.

Aroma

Complex with caramel covered roasted nuts (almond and walnut), honey and dried fruity notes - particularly candied orange, backed apple and prune. Sweet spices (cinnamon, cumin and gingerbread) and faint violet blossom.

Taste

Mouth enveloping, complex, spicy, rich and fruity with cinnamon, nutmeg, candied and dried fruit, raisins, prune, walnut and that rancio note to which great cognacs aspire.

Aftertaste

Long, lingering and slightly bitter finish with prune, blackened fruitcake and grilled nuts.

Overall

A huge rich and heavy cognac suited to enjoying with a cigar.
