Darroze Les Grands Assemblages 50 Year Old Armagnac Engraving£300 (£414.29 per litre, includes £10 for engraving)
by Billy Abbott
- Nose: Sweet, floral and delicate on first sniff – meadow flowers and sweet grapes – with richer notes of demerara sugar, stewed raisins and rich earth behind.
- Palate: Initially soft, with autumn leaves and touches of nutmeg, quickly becoming dark and rich. Dried fruit, leather, and growing notes of bitter barrel char and green leaf balance the sweetness.
- Finish: More delicate and less weighty than some old Armagnacs, with a complexity that demands careful examination.
