The property has been farmed organically since 1998 (certified 2002) so it's likely that the bulk of this 20 year old is completely organic yet uncertified (although it clearly contains some older brandies which would have come before the switch). The color is a shimmering copper. The nose is a wonderful array of fresh, dried, and candied fruits and interplays beautifully with a big spicy oak profile. On the palate it is has just enough power at 44% to satisfy most American whisky drinkers and gobs of salted caramel, candied orange, brown sugar, and cracked black pepper. When you can't even get most 10 year old bourbons for under 100 bucks, check out 20+ year old Armagnac for 70 instead. You may never go back.
