Super Premium Releases.

Yet another offer from Janneau that's likely to incite equal degrees of temptation and anticipation. This time it opens a door for many subscribers to access super-aged spirits usually associated with high rollers, cigar aficionados and otherwise certified brandy hedonists. Rumour has it that these Armagnacs are no longer part of this brand's core range, hence the clearance.

Different from the younger Janneau expressions, the heavier input of Gascon oak is counterpointed by dense dried fruit characteristics and wrapped up in softer textures - in short, these approach an almost seamless spirit/wood/fruit balance. Extraordinary presentation on both bottlings means whether you decide to enjoy these yourself or secure some for gifting later in the year, you can't lose. .

The stunning presentation of this limited release bottling includes a 'pyramid' style decanter with old style metal 'bottle ticket' replacing a paper label.  Inside the bottle is aged material of 15+ years.  Packaged in a white cylinder with red tassel.

Tasting note: Burnished copper colour with minor sediment floating in the glass (caramel has been added). A moderate shellac top note is followed by spicy cigar box and dried fruit aromas, the latter accentuating as dates, fig, spicy raisin, vanilla and honey with aeration. Medium dry, the palate continues the fruit cake like flavours with a spicy, gently warming spirit. There’s a pleasant lightness to this Armagnac; It finishes delicate and medium dry with subtle dried fig, spice and liquorice bullet flavours persisting into the aftertaste. It needs plenty of time to draw out its virtues which are initially held in check by the oak. 42% Alc./Vol.
