Nose

Definitely a cognac nose, rich grapes, oily and dark fruits, like red currants, cherries and a little nutty too, almonds! some salt right at the end.

With water: pear drops and green apples.

Palate

Wow!!! that’s an explosion of flavour, sherry, cherry, BlackBerry jam, plum jam then pear right at the end.

With water: those pears come through again, some acidity and an oily mouthfeel.

Finish

Very long, fruity and a little spicy at the end, some white pepper.

Score

91/100

Good review. I like how it was done neat and with water added. Sounds like a great dram!
