tasting notes: this armagnac is supple and full-fruited, with a rich, smoky bouquet reminiscent of prunes and a lingering, mellow finish.
what is armagnac? armagnac (like cognac) is distilled from white wine grapes, namely the folle blanche, ugni blanc and colombard varieties. after distillation, it's aged in casks made primarily from local monlezun black oak. the key technical difference between armagnac and cognac is that the latter is distilled twice, whereas the former is distilled only once. this means more time in the oak for armagnac; the extra patience required rewards a brandy with more finesse and roundness.
