Clear, golden amber.
Floral lavender, ripe passion fruit, blackcurrant and old walnuts with beeswax, honey and dried apricot.
Blackened Christmas cake, dried fruit, sweet spice, walnuts, cinnamon and nutmeg.
Very long. Tropical fruit and spice. Fades with wonderful passion fruit notes.
The three eaux-de-vie used in this blend were aged in very old casks, so the wood influence is very subtle, allowing flavours of exotic fruit to shine. The elegant understated packaging, the concept for the blend, the use of three very rare and exceptional eaux-de-vie and its fabulous rich, ripe passion fruit notes all combine to make this the best cognac I have ever had the pleasure to sample.
