Bas-Armagnac 25Yr, Delord
Delord 25 years old is a great Bas-Armagnac eau-de-vie with peppery and spicy notes on the nose and reveals a complex palate of cocoa, pepper, vanilla and walnut with well blended tannins.
'The deep, old copper penny colour is reminiscent of aged tawny porto; flawless purity. The potent spirit races from the copita in the initial aromatic burst, leaving behind dried aromas of raisins, prunes and herbs; aeration serves to alter the aromatic direction as the bouquet turns biscuity, caramel-like, honeyed, cream sherry-like, and even dark chocolate, with more than a passing perfume of cheese-like rancio; wow. The palate entry is suggestive of bittersweet dark chocolate, cocoa butter, chocolate covered raisins, and dark honey; at mid-palate the taste profile becomes fruitier than the entry and less bitter-sweet, making for a succulent aftertaste that's spectacularly satisfying. As good as twenty + year old armagnac can get. A genuine classic.' 5 Stars, Paul Pacult - Spirit Journal
