Nose: Very fruity; fresh and candied orange, muscavado sugar, clove, and vanilla. Pleasant but not inspiring, a little ‘closed’ even after leaving in the glass for a while. Neat: The slightly flat nose continues on the palate. By no means is this a bad cognac, it just doesn’t seem to want to open up and release its flavours. Off sweet initially but drying soon after and a little plasticky with a touch of leather about it. Fruity notes are little more muted and err towards dried fig and apricot rather than the citrus evident on the nose. A few rough edges mean it won’t make my ‘to sip’ list but offer promise for mixing.
I've seen Cognacs come and go over the past couple of decades and this one has been consistent throughout. Just great stuff.
