This Cognac was distilled in a wood fired still and shows notes of pumpernickel bread, sourdough and toasted seeds on the nose at first. Followed by brioche, freshly churned butter, hessian and warm cereals. With time there is also a light and elegant green fruitiness. With water we get camphor, jelly babies, icing sugar and caraway. The palate is powerful and filled with notes of tar liqueur, white stone fruits, mead, quince paste and hawthorne. Water brings grated nutmeg, olive oil, bracken and mineral oil. An elegant earthiness emerges in the finish.
