Distiller: Domaine de Baraillon

Bottler: Domaine de Baraillon

Brand: Domaine de Baraillon


ABV: 46% ABV

Age: 20 Years

Nose: Powerfully syrupy, lovely bouquet of fruits. Blackberry, rich concord grape, honey, graham cracker and excellent oak structure.

Taste: Thin mouthfeel, but no heat. Light spearmint, then a full dive into fruits. Blackberry, apple crisp, currants and rich oak. Light sulfur, some pipe tobacco. Excellent juicy start to a satisfyingly dry back palate.

Finish: Long, loads of tobacco. Cocoa, blackberry and well integrated oak.

Overall: Phenomenal bottling. Great stuff that manages to really nail the blend of bright, jammy fruits and tannic oak structure.

Thanks for reading!

Rank: 7
