FRUITY PIPE TOBACCO
This 18 year old Armaganc comes in at 46.7% after maturing in an Armagnac barrel.
Outturn: 510 bottles.
Panel's tasting note: "Tate & Lyle’s finest Golden Syrup hues hide aromas of labyrinthine complexity. There is an initial waft of fresh figs, overripe plums, the seats of a Rover 90, Balkan Sobranie pipe tobacco and a touch of Deep Heat, just for good measure.
A little surprising then, when the avalanche you expect becomes a gentle cuddle of flavour. Initial sweetness gives way to an unctuous embrace of fruity sap wood, and zesty orange flesh, which clings to the palate with a lip-smacking fervour. At the end you’re left in a warm and satisfying, gently tannic, afterglow."
