Delord 70cl / 40%
A 1983 Bas Armagnac from top producer Delord, a historic house founded by travelling distiller Prosper Delord in 1893.
Armagnac is emerging as the whisky-alternative category of choice for discerning spirits fans, with unbeatable value for money and, in the best Bas Armagnacs like this one, superb complexity and depth of flavour.
This would make a brilliant anniversary or birthday gift for anyone born in 1983 and comes in at a fraction of the price of whiskies from the same vintage.
The house style exhibits a complexity of aromas and flavours including walnut, prune, nutmeg, cinnamon and dried peels.
