Awards and Accolades
“The best hundred bucks you’ll spend. A 20-year old Cognac that’s in perfect harmony and at the peak of its evolution. The most apt descriptor, by a country mile: luscious.”
- Rated 5 Stars – F. Paul Pacult, Spirit Journal
CLASSIC (96-100) / HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION
“The opening whiff offers aromas of toasted almonds and apple butter…middle stage adds delicate aromas of old oak …and on the last nosing; two decades of maturation in small oak barrels. On the palate the multi-layered flavors glide along in perfect harmony. The finish is long, oaky sweet, and a bit caramel-like.” – Best Buy – Wine Enthusiast
