Excellent,
Highly Recommended

Tasting Notes:

Ripe, dripping baked apple with flecks of delectably musty golden pear on the nose lead into a heavenly calvados. Bountiful apple charm from the lightness of its blossoms to the astringency of its skin and everything in between. Graceful aging imparts just enough vanilla and caramel to encapsulate this classic of the category.
