This single barrel of Armagnac from Dartigalongue is the result of decades of work in their cellar. This Armagnac is a beautiful melding of eau-de-vie with a minimum of 25 years, but includes eau-de-vie decades older. As liquid is drawn from the barrel, old stocks are added to replenish the blend. The mini-solera results in one of the most complex and delicious old Armagnacs on the shelf. A fantastic drinking experience at an affordable price. Expect winter spices on the nose, fruit pastry, and leather. Starts very subtle with maple and apricot and then brings in black notes of pepper and finishes full of licorice and tobacco.
