Delord 25 Year Old Bas-Armagnac
Delord 25 Year Old Bas-Armagnac.
"The nose is biscuity, caramel-like, cream Sherry-like with a touch of cheese-like rancio. The palate entry tastes like bittersweet dark chocolate, cocoa butter, chocolate-covered raisins and dark honey; the midpalate is fruity and less bittersweet than the entry, making for a succulent aftertaste. A genuine classic."Score: 96 Points, Best Buy, Wine Enthusiast
"The deep, old copper penny color is reminiscent of aged tawny porto; flawless purity. The potent spirit races from the copita in the initial aromatic burst, leaving behind dried aromas of raisins, prunes and herbs; aeration serves to alter the aromatic direction as the bouquet turns biscuity, caramel-like, honeyed, cream sherry-like, and even dark chocolate-like, with more than a passing perfume of cheese-like rancio; wow. The palate entry is suggestive of bittersweet dark chocolate, cocoa butter, chocolate covered raisins, and dark honey; at midpalate, the taste profile becomes fruitier than the entry and less bittersweet, making for a succulent aftertaste that's spectacularly satisfying. As good as 20+ year old Armagnac can get, period. A genuine classic." Score: 5 STARS, Highest Recommendation F. Paul Pacult
