2019 Ultimate Spirits Challenge

The Scotch Malt Whisky Society Cask A5.1 Fruit shop raid 1989 Armagnac (France), 61.3% abv, $275.00

Very Good,
Strong Recommendation

Tasting Note:

This is truly an ambitious brandy bottled at a heart-stopping proof, but so well integrated that instead of alcoholic burn a parade of dried fruits welcomes the taster. After digesting the initial raisin and prune character a mellow wave of milk chocolate whispers as an epilogue.
