The Lemorton's distill their cider after aging it for eleven months in oak barrels. Distillation takes place in their own alembic, a single-distillation unit that distills to about 140 proof. The clear spirit then goes into used barrels which have an average age of 30+ years. The excellent '87 vintage is still youthful despite its advanced age. Expect tons of intensity and power thanks to the high percentage pear brandy (Calvo from Domfrontais must be 30% pear, but LeMorton's are always closer to 80+%). Although it's powerful aromatically, it's definitely turned the corner and doesn't show the nervy side that the young pear distillates often have. Expect depth and power all in one taught package.
