Tasting Notes

"This is decadently flavorful, striking a perfect balance between long ageing and lively spirit. The oak offers subtle vanilla and lingering tannins, and the cognac tastes of nutmeg, tobacco, hazelnut, and orange peel. This is a final drink of the night kind of cognac; there aren't many places one can go from here."
