Review #830 – Baron de Lustrac 25 Yr Brut de Fut Armagnac

Review #830 | /r/Brandy Review #27 – Baron de Lustrac 25 Yr Brut de Fut Armagnac

The Schtick: This is a 25 year old, cask strength armagnac coming to us using an interesting recipe – a significant quantity of the distillate is made using Folle Blanche grapes. Since ‘Brut de Fut’ means cask strength in French, it’s a bit redundant to note this but the 42.4% ABV is indeed cask strength.

Distiller: Baron de Lustrac

Bottler: Baron de Lustrac

ABV: 42.4% ABV

Age: 25 Years

Source: Sample

Nose: Super honey forward. Floral, sweet fruits like melon, apples, pears, raspberry. Smells like a nice ice wine.

Taste: Medium mouth feel. No heat. Sweet honey, clove, mild sulfur, apple pie, light clove. Very syrupy flavor, with some nice vanilla undertones.

Finish: Short, no real heat. Clove, sulfur, tobacco blends really nicely with apple, syrupy pear, some faint pear and confectioners sugar.

Overall: Overall, I liked this but almost found it too sweet. The fruitiness and sugary notes dominated what little spice there was. If you like a real sweet brandy, this is for you.

Thanks for reading!
