Very Good,
Strong Recommendation

Tasting Note:

A wild forest of brambly, seed berry, wild, fruits escapes the deep crimson liqueur when poured. The palate shows pleasant sweetness, but also benefits from a lift of fresh fruit acidity. The Cognac's floral character lingers in the refined finish. Incredible nose of fresh coffee torrefaction with a touch of Cognac's silky-spiced barrel flavors. A decidedly dry liqueur that allows the roasted coffee flavors to persist to a long, soothing finish.
