- ABV 41%
A Pays d'Auge Calvados matured in 2000 litre, oval shaped oak barrels (which improves contact with wood). A delightful digestive, but also recommended for drinking as a “Trou Normand” (during a meal) or with accompanying cheeses.Tasting note: Brilliant deep gold. Only slightly less perfumed than its younger sibling; Green apples, cider, roasted chestnuts with lively acid lift. Further exposure accents pleasing woody notes (cedar, sandalwood). Fuller and richer than the 3 year old with middle weight flavours of baked apple and light spice, keenly balanced by fresh, cidery acidity. An appealing combination of youth and middle age. 41%Alc./Vol. Other reviews... International Wine & Spirit Competition (August 2014) :GOLD MEDAL (category : Calvados from 8 to 12 yo) "A Calvados that embodies noble classicism. An almost candied fruit, like an apple roasted with honey and butter. Mouth is round and just as greedy as the nose. Seduction and pleasure."
