  6. Dupont more than 30 Year Old Pays d'Auge Calvados
    The 30 year old Dupont calvados is quite special as it has many fine qualities only associated with much older calvados. Dupont hs always made superb calvados and this is no exception. A very large difficulty with making calvados is the need to use pears for acidity which leave a pear drop flavour. In the 30 y.o. the pear drop aroma and flavour is not very noticeable and it is well balanced and smooth.
    Aroma:
    Aroma: This is quite rich and fruity but not losing the apple aroma, combined with rose hip jelly and burnt raw tobacco
    Flavour:
    Flavour: There is a smooth taste but there is a richness and style that is far superior to many other calvados products. Starts with a yeast dough flavour and develops into dried apple, finishing with mace. Good balance
