Vallein Tercinier Lot 89

Age: 29 years old (distilled 1989, bottled 2018)

Eye: A sprinkling of amber and light bronze initially, but the main element on the eye is the striking golden hue.

Nose: Initial hints of citrus and lighter fruits come through. Take another sniff to enjoy the darker and deeper flavors within. Notes of tobacco and cinnamon contrast perfectly with the citrus.

Palate: The palate is exquisite. A hefty chunk of apricot and vanilla can be tasted with lighter themes of prune and Madeira.

Prunier XO Très Vieille

Age: 45 year average, including 60 year old cognac

Nose: Menthol, leather, candied fruits, walnuts, dark chocolate and a hint of licorice. Creamy tannins melt into rancio, dominated by vanilla and tobacco.

Palate: Delightful elegance and floral finesse. Further notes of archetypal rancio, fresh hazelnuts, dark chocolate and toffee follow into an exceptionally long finish.

Pairing: Letterpress Jamaican Chocolate (70% dark)

André Petit Hors d'Age

Age: distilled 1990

Eye: A rich, garnet amber that glimmers with age.

Nose: Rich and balanced, some oak and spices. You can find a rich, well-balanced bouquet with considerable finesse and elegance. It releases a delicate flavor of oak as well as lovely spicy aromas of jasmine and tobacco leaves.

Palate: The taste is impressive and old, the finish is long and fresh.

Pairing: Kougin Amann
