  5. Calvados Dupont Vintage 1969

    Intense and rich baked apple flavours that hide much of the pear tastes found in younger calvas. This is due mainly to the development of the congenors from the tannins which create greater richness.

    Aroma:
    Aroma: Currants and pears, vanilla and apple, sweet toffee but also drier walnut tones
    Flavour:
    Flavour: Some fruit cake and sweet apple flavours. The pear is apparent but not overbearing and does not hide a wonderful balance developed from good distilling and the natural ageing process. This is intensely rich, a treasure!

  8. Hermitage Réaux 50 y.o. Vintage Cognac

    Cognac Masters 2013 - Master Award

    A magical fifty year old cognac that has matured in old casks in dark cellars for half a century. No wonder this is so good, it just oozes charm and is one of those bottles that is hard to put the cork back into. Lovely mocha and chocolatey flavours.

    Aroma: This has a superb aroma of rich toffee molasses, bitter chocolate, cardamom, sweet spices and ripe cherries
    Flavour:
    Flavour: Quite characteristic of the distiller’s style with a rich flavour of chocolate and natural toffee. There is also a pleasing taste of mature Muscat grapes which is present on the front of the mouth. This cognac is soft and completely non- aggressive providing very moreish qualities
