TASTING NOTES


EYE

Rich, brownish gold.

NOSE

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.

PALATE

Superb marriage of fine tannins and dried fruit notes. Powerful without aggression, melting into a full, lingering finish.

OVERALL

This is a fine specimen of its age and provenance. Deliciously long. A handsome cognac.

ENJOYMENT

  • THE PHOTOGRAPH



    Gargoyles, or grotesques are they are properly called when purely ornamental, were believed to frighten away evil or harmful spirits, protecting those inside the building.

    A human face among the gargoyles adorning the façade

    The Old House has a variety of human and animal figures adorning the half-timbering, one of which caught the eye of Julia Hasse:

    I couldn’t help staring into what I feel is a friendly face and admiring the finesse with which his features are sculpted into the wood. He has the appealing, wise look of one who has observed centuries of life around the House.
    - Julia Hasse
