Nose: (Some rough alcohol, so it needs to air out for a few days after opening), a floral fruity nose(P), Apricot(P), light sugar, light white wine, crushed grape, little bit of oak, vineyard.
Palate:Lightly spiced, light sugar(P), brambles, mint, white wine. A fruit cocktail of(P): peach, strawberry, pear, cherry, quince.
Finish: Normal with a bit of warmth, dry white wine(thinking Pinot Grigo).
Water(Didn’t say in video, but it’s not suggested):A few drops makes it spicier, wood note appears.
Mixing:Can easily be dominated by other assertive tastes in cocktails, only leaving bitter quince(in ice bitter quince dominates
Warming up: Fruit and sugar to the fore in nose and taste. Spicier and dry in finish.

So far:Recommended. A good light cognac and gateway for wine lovers. 85Pts of 100.

Do some more Bourbon reviews when you get a chance. I do love me some cognac, but I only drink XO, even vsop is too ethanoly for me.
