Review #2136 | Armagnac Review #105

Distiller: Chateau De Labaude

Bottler: Chateau De Labaude

Brand: Chateau De Labaude


ABV: 40% ABV

Age: NAS

Nose: Fruity, fun and bright on the nose. Like sniffing a packet of Welch’s fruit dummies, it’s bright, sweet and covers the gamut from candies cherries, lemon, lime, orange, a touch of cotton candy, and bright blueberry.

Taste: Thin to medium on the palate. Cocoa, honey, blackberries, blueberry, honey, a touch of slivered pecan and almond.

Finish: Long finish, sweet and buttery. Light almond, sweet cream, vanilla bean and a touch of cocoa.

Overall: Overall, not too bad. Interesting, fun, impressively delicious though it’s not winning any awards for complexity. I enjoy the jammy, bright, character overall.

Thanks for reading!
