Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Stuart P

    Nose: Dark and enticing, with aromas of stewed prunes and raisins, baked apples and honey, plus cinnamon and nutmeg.

    Palate: Heady notes of dried apricots and spicy ginger, along with nutmeg, toasty oak and bitter orange marmalade. Rich and mouthfilling.

    Finish: The warming spice and dried fruit linger, giving a pleasant finish.

    Comment: A delicious Cognac that is rich and full flavoured, but never overblown, with the dry spices balancing well with the aromatic fruit.

  • Tasting Note by Alyona

    Nose: Dry, chocolate orange nose and a slight rancio on the end,
    with a distinct drying laundry note underneath.

    Palate: Sweet, milk chocolate on the start, subtle vanilla notes
    around the edges yet still quite woody, leading into the spicy finish.

    Finish: Slowly building ginger spices, dried orange peel and strong
    rancio notes.

  • Producer's Note

    Colour: warm golden fall

    Bouquet: delicate and elegant. The woody fragrances disappear to let the floral bouquet develop at its best: vanilla, hawthorn and wild flowers.

    Palate: long lasting aromas, such as old Port and the famous « Rancio » This « Rancio » is characterised by nuts, walnuts and dried fruits savours melted with dried flowers, such as apricot and orange jam. A well-balanced complex bouquet, due to the distillation with the lees.
