Armagnac is a distinctive grape brandy produced in the Armagnac region in Gascony south west France. It is traditionally only distilled once and is aged in local black oak. It is fuller bodied, more aromatic and earthier than cognac.
A rich old 1980 vintage armagnac from a small boutique producer. Domaine Hourtica is located in the very best part of Bas Armagnac, and this hand-distilled, long-rested bottling has delicious spicy vanilla notes due to decades of careful oak ageing.
