Paul Giraud Vieille Reserve is a very round Cognac, mellow. The rancio is typical for a cognac that has been ageing for arond 25 years in average. Lots of fruits, and a great, long after taste.
Eye: Golden amber. Nose: Rather floral, slightly fruity. Orange confit and prunes. Palate: More flower flavors and candied fruit. An intense flavor of almonds and hazelnuts. The finale is strong, with notes of cocoa and leather. Spice and smoky hints come to the fore.
