Distiller: Jean-Luc Pasquet
Bottler: Jean-Luc Pasquet
Brand: Jean-Luc Pasquet
Selection: Legacy Brandy
ABV: 44.9% ABV
Age: 57 Years
Nose: Sweet cream, toffee, honey. Nice oak structure on the nose – ethanol is in check.
Taste: Thick and rich – well behaved on the heat. Sweet toffee, satisfying pepper. Oak structure is just right, though heat grows with time. Nice creme brulee and allspice. Pepper really kicks up over time, as does a cherry note.
Finish: Long and growing hotter. Overall it’s very nice, though a bit oaky, and I feel like this batch is starting to trend back up. Some minty fruits feel a hair out of place, but no major complaints.
Overall: Real nice, but the finish leaves me wanting a bit. The nose and palate are very solid though, and overall it’s a very nice bottling, and especially interesting when you consider what the world looked like back when this was distilled.
