Hermitage 70 Year Old Grande Champagne Cognac
It is rare to find a cognac that has aged for this long in oak barrels. Long ageing is a sign of maturity as it allows the alcohol to react with the wood tannins and esters providing a much sought after condition known as “rancio” a type of madeiraisation or enrichening of the cognac.
Aroma: There is a rich but musty aroma with mushrooms, leather and roasted walnuts
Flavour: Intense mushroom, roasted nut and a range of other flavours including dry spice, leather, tobacco and oaky qualities
