Golden amber color, it offers an expressive nose of dried figs, plum, cinnamon and caramel that mingle with mature flavors of toasted hazelnut, saddle leather and chocolate. This rare vintage release from 1972 is impossibly complex and seductively layered on the nose with enticing notes of walnut, cigar, dried fruits, leather and damp earth. The palate combines a structured austerity with a sweet fruitiness that is balanced and intriguingly complex. For all brandy aficionados, this is one to be missed.
