Cask No. A5.1

Fruit shop raid

Bas Armagnac

Bursting through Lucozade colours of the fruit shop, you’re mugged by soft warm spice and oak. Layers of warm Muscovado sugar mingle with caramel, cinnamon and angelica. Scraps of over ripe quince hang around for good measure. The mouthfeel is warm and inviting, the ripeness of the fruit sitting very comfortably with warm light, yet quite fresh tannins that give a somewhat misleading impression of youth. The giveaway for the age is the sheer depth of complexity and flavour, leaving an incredibly long soft oak finish.
