Everything you could ask for in a cognac of this age. Deep, powerful, delicious notes of roasting cocoa beans with hints of mint, underpinned by creamy wood notes.
Superb marriage of fine tannins and dried fruit notes. Powerful without aggression, melting into a full, lingering finish.
This is a fine specimen of its age and provenance. Deliciously long. A handsome cognac.
A necessarily Limited Edition, only 128 bottles of 50 Year Old will be put on the market in 2016.
For maximum enjoyment, drink this cognac neat and allow the cognac to breathe for several minutes and open up fully by gently swirling the glass.
