Colour: Deep amber.
Nose: A beautiful concoction of polished hardwoods and tropical fruit syrups. Some mushroom powder, damp cellars, tea tree oil and many dark, concentrated fruits. Maybe straightforward, but it’s beautiful and perfectly precise old Armagnac.
Mouth: A rather excellent balance between gamey, meaty notes, earthiness and darker fruits. Lots of fig jam, seville orange marmalade, a cheeky wee kumquat and some black pepper and a shaving of truffle. Again, delicious. Gets breadier and earther with time.
Finish: Medium with a nice mix of dried tropical fruits and dark fruit jams. Becoming similarly earthy and savoury with time.
