Roger Groult Venerable Calvados Apple Brandy (700ml)
Tasting note: Polished bronze / topaz colour. Cognac-like elegance with lovely depth and integration to the bouquet; apple flan, pear tart and sweet baking spices, in particular, cinnamon. 4-5 minutes of swirling introduces notes of ripe red apples and vanilla. This shows beautiful fruit and oak integration; more baked orchard fruits, nutmeg and nuances of bitter dark chocolate through the finish. Concludes elegant, long, mature. The right mix of fruit and barrel age. 41% Alc./Vol.
