Anyone who even remotely likes brown spirits should be jumping all over this. This is a classically-flavored Armagnac with so much richness and lasting sweetness that it should easily crossover to Bourbon and Scotch drinkers. The price, however, is absurd. Even some of our best Armagnac deals at this age, like the Darroze 20 year or the Jean-Bon editions we imported last year, were still $90 or more. At $69.99, this is the same price as our 14 year old Briat exclusive we bought last year and it's six years older! Not only is it older, it's better. This is a spellbinding brandy with luscious layers of oak, vanilla, caramel, and soft fruit. If you're the kind of person who buys one bottle of brandy a year, this is the one. If you're the kind of person who drinks brandy regularly, start figuring out how many you can afford. It won't get any better than this at this price.
