    I support the Armagnac statement - but it's with good sweetness and lots of dried fruits, very drinkable - excellent!

      Tons of dried fruits, plums, prunes, dates, figs, you name it, brown sugar, acacia honey, toffee - fantastic!

      Little punchy, oily, good sweetness, more dried fruits, fine oak wood, wet tobacco leaves, spices, cloves, cinnamon - great!

      Wow! A big body with nice balance! Oak and sweetness of red fruits. Sun-ripened raisins and leather. Dried fruits with dates and spices with black pepper in a mild tone. Tobacco leaves and cocoa are also there.
    • Finish
      Long with oak that turns into the sweetness of raisins and dates. Dark chocolate bitterness in fine balance. Does not need water despite its alcohol strength. Fantastic!
