The Guasch family, owners of Baron de Sigognac, have been based in Gascony since the 12th Century. Uniquely in the region, all of their production is distilled into Armagnac, and not wine. Run by father and son team Jean-Claude and Thomas who look after the viticulture, vinification and distillation. Each years' production is aged independently and then blended with other armagnac upon bottling under the supervision of Jean-Claude.
This is of amber colour with mahogany highlights. Fine nose, marked by notes of vanilla, cinnamon and candied orange. Lots of roundness in the mouth with floral, woody and spicy notes leading to a long and pleasing finish of grilled almonds and vanilla.
