First released in 1984, this special vintage edition of Bénédictine is only sold at the distillery. Packaged in a gift tub, this “very fine dry liqueur” benefits from a second maceration and is aged for two extra years in a Limousine oak refill cask.

Avaliação e degustação

Experimentado em 02/08/2010


Clear, golden amber with burnished copper highlights.


Lightly spicy, cinnamon, cardamom, nutmeg and mace – the spice notes are more subdued than in Bénédictine D.O.M.


Silky, lightly spiced and dryer than D.O.M. but still on the sweet side, although far from cloyingly so. The warmth of the alcohol on the palate subtly lifts warm saffron, ginger, cardamom, clove and particularly gingerbread spice notes, with citrus being far less apparent than in D.O.M.


Gingerbread, fudge and vanilla dominate the satisfying warming finish which I find strangely reminiscent of sucking new leather.
