For me best neat. A must-have.
43 Years Old, Cognac Cask
Year of Bottling
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Very perfumed with an almost vinous quality to the nose. Blackberries, perfumed candles mixed with honeysuckle, ginseng, tamarind and a dunnage-like earthiness.
Palate: More wood apparent but only to add to the weird exoticism. Rancio galore. Plenty of musk and a pleasing bitterness - powdered clove, star anise and hints of vintage rhum agricole.
Finish: Spiced and long.
Comment: For me best neat. A must-have.
Nose: Intense, elegant, complex. Fruit and oak are intertwined in a luscious fragrant bouquet. Peaches stewed in honey. Dates and dried apricot. Sandalwood. Touch of incense. Walnut.
Palate: Silky, caressing. Again, a perfect integration of oak and fruit. So\rcomplex. Dried fruit like Dundee cake.
Finish: Lingering, elegantly nutty.
Comment: Incredibly 'alive'
