Tariquet Bas-Armagnac 15 Year Folle Blanche Cask Strength
Armagnac — Bas-Armagnac, France
I was really looking forward to trying this folle blanche armagnac. The nose is already dry, with ripe grape and floral tones and a hint of citrus. The mouthfeel is noticably oily. The taste is very dry, tannic - almost astringent - yet fruity and with a hint of mustiness. No big wood flavour here. Overall, I was somewhat disappointed- because this really isn't any better than some of the VS or VSOP offerings around.
