Wide aromatic range with a fruity, strawberry profile.
Intense, gourmand, caramel au beurre. Red fruits. Ripe peaches, apricot. Sweet exotic spices (vanilla, cinnamon, star anise). Roasted pineapple, melon, butter. Great purity, violet flower, very pretty.
The addition of water accentuates the buttery characters.
Dry, fresh, pure, smooth and rounded with a good core energy. However the oak seems to have the upper end and masks a little bit of the gourmandise and aromatic expression of the Cognac.
A twist of bitter oak on the finish.
