Intense, spicy, slightly woody, with fresh orange peel and sweet pipe tobacco on the nose, this is a rich, full-bodied, decadent cognac from one of the region’s major players. It’s the spiritous equivalent of lounging in a plush, aged leather armchair next to a wood-fired hearth. Silky, rich, warm and complex, this is a seductive, decadent piece of work. Some sultana, cocoa, tobacco leaf and warm marzipan on the palate. Round, spicy and long, long, long on the finish. A glass of luxury.
