Details

This is a particularly fine example of a 1920s cognac which comes from the southern part of the Grande Champagne cru around Lignières. Cognacs of this quality take many decades to reach perfection and this is a fine example. Utterly delicious with flavours of passion fruit, damsons macadamia nuts and dried mandarin peel. It has a fine and intense rancio, the result of more than 60 years in an oak barrel.

"This has a gorgeous flavour, somewhere between a sultana and a sun-dried apricot with the spirit framing thelayers with impeccable integration."  Olly Smith, Wines & Spirits Expert
