Tasting review

Tasting review:

Eye: Warm, deep, old gold color

Nose: Remarkable floral freshness with leafy undertones, yielding to fine spices - notable cinnamon & pronounced aromas of stewed fruit & quince.

Palate: Exceptionally smooth, packed with peach and apricot, and a hint of resin and honey.  An elegant & powerful finish.

Description

The Leyrat Glory Cognac is a single estate delight.  Thanks to a happy oversight that saw a group of barrels being 'forgotten', this eaux-de-vie was left for over 40 years to strengthen and reduce.  This means that this is a Cognac that's been allowed to naturally age to the perfect cask strength of 45% ABV.

This occured due to the barrels being stored at the very back of Layrat Cognac's Paradise Cellar.  Hidden from view, it was only in recent years that they were re-discovered.  In fact, there was no trace of the year the eaux-de-vie within was distilled, but it was surmised that it was a minimum of four decades before being found.

Leyrat Glory is remarkably vivacious and fresh.  It's a Fins Bois Cognac that's the perfect choice to bring out on the most special of occasions, or would make the perfect gift for the Cognac connoiseur.
