Guillon-Painturaud Hors d'Age Cognac

 

£135.00

Aged around 30 years in oak before bottling, this Hors d'Age from Guillon-Painturaud is still very vibrantly fruity even at this great age...

Flavours and subtleties to fascinate even the most distinguished pallet.

An exquisite Cognac, produced by a traditional family producer (their family farm dates back to the 17th century) who only began selling under their own name in the 1970s.

 

Tasting notes: 

 Nose:
Quite rich and woody. Cinnamon and mocha/cocoa notes. Develops ginger and grapey, almost Port-like aromas, with cooked red apples and damson jam
Palate:
Intense fruitiness: apple, plum, damson and raisin. Exceptionally rounded, with some quite prominent woodspice
Finish:
Becomes drying and more spicy in the mouth as with most spirits of this age, but retains good harmonious leathery fruit in the background. Hints of red liquorice
