    A delicate but complex cognac with many exceedingly fine qualities.

    Aroma:
    Aroma: Pineapple syrup and roasted walnuts, a little pepper with oak and spices
    Flavour:
    Flavour: There are many quite powerful flavours with a pineapple, walnut, spice, banana and medlar fruits complexity on the palate. Its intense flavour is unusually enhanced by its slightly higher than normal strength. Good balance and very long on the palate. This is at an ideal strength for the cognac.
