Cask No. A3.1

Gravitas and sophistication

Bas Armagnac

This delightful old Armagnac is like an elderly statesman full of gravitas and urbane sophistication; a glass to accompany thoughtful contemplation. The nose has floral perfumes and polished wood, syrup of figs, raisins and molasses, orange oil and spiced rum punch – maybe even a medicinal, old-fashioned apothecary’s note. The palate is viscous, intense and weighty – lots of wood (no surprise), gingerbread, treacle and various dried fruits. That dark fruity sweetness is complimented by a dry, spicy finish; imagine a toffee apple laced with cough linctus, imagine PX drizzled on black bun and imagine a tantalising doorway to a time long gone.
