Tasting Notes

"The nose leans heavily on stone fruits like apricots and white peaches along with green grapes and orange peel. The cognac is soft and sweet on your tongue with only a slight tannic note from the wood aging. Those same stone fruits, only dried, appear on the finish which is warming and not bitter."
