A. Hardy Noces de Perle 30 Year Old Grande Champagne Cognac

Amber honey hue. Initial nosing pass detects a mildly spicy bouquet that's ready to fly; aeration doesn't deepen this nose as much as it sweetens it, blending in comely notes of toffee, brown sugar, leather and vanilla extract. Palate entry is sap-like, sugary and oaky; midpalate shows generous flavors of pineapple, guava, mint, caramel and oak resin. Aftertaste is firm, semisweet and more fruity than woody. P.P.
