Notes from the Distillery:
The spirit is produced with organic Ugni Blanc grapes grown in the renowned Grande Champagne region of Cognac, France, and aged forty years in Limousin oak casks; sip it neat to best enjoy its subtleties.
In the glass, this Cognac show lovely rancio notes with a mashed almond nuance. The palate is viscous and honeyed, with additional hints of crème brûlée, while the extremely long finish has concentrated sweet fruit and toasted coconut.

"A fascinating 40-year-old spirit – Speyside by way of the tropics. Expressive aromas and flavors of both fleshy exotic fruit and salty sea air reminiscent of Scotch, plus a healthy dose of rancio. On the palate, it’s expansive and amiable, but followed by a long, serious, very dry finish full of astringent grilled walnut." (41% abv) (JW) (9/2019)
