"Aromas of pear and caramel with nuances of cinnamon and vanilla are your first contact with this unique cognac. It comes alive with the first taste, assertive, off-dry and rich with more cinnamon, honey and toasted bread. Finishes long, warm and with a touch of barrel tannins. Overall quite delicious though not very complex. "
