Top 100 Spirits 2018
Return to List

Blended and bottled in 2018, this 20-year-old Armagnac, made from a blend of Baco and Colombard grapes melds rich vanilla, maple and brown sugar with a drying blast of fiery spice, notably allspice, ginger and cayenne heat, plus lemon peel. Adding water releases some of the tannic grip and adds a creaminess that reads as lemon custard or vanilla cream pie. Kara Newman
