Review #434 | /r/Brandy Review #3 – Domaine de Salie 20yr Armagnac
Designator: Armagnac (French)
Distiller: Domaine de Salie
Bottler: Domaine de Salie
ABV: 48.8% ABV | 97.6pf
Age: 20 Years
Source: r/scotchswap sample
Nose: Sweet fruit, cloves, cocoa and stewed fruits (grape, plums, figs, blackberry)
Taste: Thin mouthfeel but nice and flavorful. No heat. Sweet plums and figs. There’s some light pepper and a nice cocoa touch.
Finish: Short and a little hot for the proof but very sweet and pleasant. Some faint molasses, light sulfur, and a lot of pear.
Overall: I like this but I think it’s fairly one dimensional – very sweet with little balancing here. The sulfur was an interesting sensation to get in the finish but despite my criticisms, I don’t think there were major flaws.
Thanks for reading!
