"This light-bodied and bracing cognac is intriguing. It is reminiscent of a hot, dry attic with aromas of cedar, cut wood and baking spices dominating the senses with just a hint of honey and tropical fruit. On the palate it is rich, off-dry, and spicy with vanilla, cinnamon and cardamon. The mid-palate is very light as is the finish but it lingers a long time with the memory of sweet honey tea. Perfect for a Sidecar cocktail. "
