Review #489 | Armagnac Review #13
Distiller: Chateau de Pellehaut
Bottler: Chateau de Pellehaut
Brand: Chateau de Pellehaut
ABV: 49.7% ABV
Age: 17 Years
Nose: Thick, rich fudge. Sweet bready caramel. Faint blackberry jam, gingerbread.
Taste: Medium mouthfeel, only faint heat. Mild sulfur, faint pepper. Jammy and rich with fruity currant notes. Blackberry, raspberry, strawberry jam. Caramel and cocoa are very present here as well.
Finish: Medium length, fruity but dry. Nice and cake like with lots of cocoa, clove and gingerbread notes.
Overall: This is very well balanced, even despite its relative youth (compared to the others). Heat is in check, its not too syrupy or artificial and the sweetness isnt cloying.
Thanks for reading!
