I usually research special purchases like this, but I found this and on a whim bought it. I’m so glad I did! Banjo Man loved it and conducted his own taste test between it and a special Christmas gift from 2010 of Hine cognac. Needless to say, he enjoyed his evening very much.
90-95) Points – Wine Enthusiast:
In 1838 Pascal Dartigalongue, originally from Saint Lannes near Madiran, moved to Nogaro in the Gers and founded the Dartigalongue masion d’Armagnac, which has been owned and operated by the family ever since. Each year the finest white wines are distilled into armagnac, stored in seasoned oak casks and matured for several years in their 19th century, two story cellar.
Matured for a minimum of fifteen years, Dartigalongue Hors D’Age Bas Armagnac displays a complex nose of caramel, toasted almond, nougat and dried fruit. The medium-bodied, fruit-forward palate is accented by hints of tobacco, cedar and mineral which linger through the finish.
