Judges Tasting Notes

An old, old Armagnac which in its antiquity has achieved a kind of quiet serenity, the satisfaction of a life well-lived. The overiding flavours of burnt orange peel, orange blossom, raisin, fig and fruitcake spread deliciously from the nose through to the palate. Supremely well balanced, medium bodied, starts quietly but grows, and grows and grows in intensity on the palate to the longest imaginable finish. A glorious experience, how rare, how lucky you are to have a glass of this in front of you!
