Delord Armagnac 25 Year

Armagnac — Bas-Armangac, France

5.0 out of 5 stars
Easily my favorite, and the best thing in my liquor cabinet. More of a rye/bourbon guy, but I also dabble in ages rums, brandies, tequilas and mezcal. Nose is Walnut, caramel, butterscotch, honey and a herbaceous note... marjoram? Very toasty, warm, bready and sweet. The palette is more fruit forward, peaches, cherry and very ripe banana dominate. Butterscotch, and honey dipped bread follows, nice baking spice sweet/spice to the end and finally finished with a dry cocoa and cinnamon. Enormous finish, very thick and sweet while maintaining its balance to not be sickeningly sweet. My only 5 star.

    Agreed - this is a little-known gem, despite winning several awards, including Chairman's Trophy at this year's Ultimate Spirits Challenge. Don't let anybody else know!
