Janneau 18 Year Old Single Distillery Armagnac $75/500 ml.
Deep copper color. Complex aromas of anise cookie, caramel, tarragon, leather, dried apple, and baking spices follow through on a rich entry to a dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body with layers of butter roasted nuts, brown sugar, and cigar box notes. Finishes with a long, complex fade with evolving note of spicy ginger, lemongrass, honey, and limestone. A fascinating spirit of the highest order.
