The Schtick: This is a 15 year old armagnac that is distilled and bottled at Chateau de Pellehaut. This fits nicely into adding to a previous series I did, comprised of various Pellehauts through the ages. This will fit nicely on the younger end of the scale.
Distiller: Chateau de Pellehaut
Bottler: Chateau de Pellehaut
ABV: 48.6% ABV
Age: 15 Years
Nose: Sweet confectioners sugar, pears, apple pie. Clove, Dole fruit syrup. Faint clove. Musty sweetness.
Taste: Thick, rich mouthfeel. No heat. Caramel apple, sweet toffee. Rich milk chocolate. No sulfur, faint oak, no bitterness or astringency.
Finish: Medium, some heat. Caramel, vanilla cream, honey, wafer cookies. Really nice.
Overall: Super solid, very enjoyable. I really loved the lack of bitter sulfur on the palate and it definitely let a solid caramel body shine through. Really well done. Strangely enough, I enjoyed this as much as their really old releases, and a bit better than the 2000 17yr release. I’m really enamored by what they’re doing over there. Well done, boys.
Thanks for reading!
