For generations, the Darroze family has been scouring Gascony in search of the finest Armagnacs from the Bas-Armagnac region and as a result, thousands of centuries-old treasures are now held in stock at the Darroze house.
The 8 year old blend exhibits very little wood influence. A straightforward Armagnac that is highly strung but nevertheless smooth and enveloping. You can drink this Armagnac as an aperitif, with or without ice and also use it for cocktails. Vanilla toffee, sweetened cream and lots of zesty lemon. There is a feisty youthfulness to the nose, but with sweet and rounded notes in place to provide balance – sultanas, light fruit cake and brown sugar.
