Marquis de Montesquiou X.O. Armagnac

Best Buy

The initial aroma emits seductive scents of pork sausage, bacon fat, and candied walnut; aeration adds dried figs and dates, marzipan, nougat, dark coffee, and honey. The palate entry is unabashedly sweet and maple-like; at midpalate the taste profile rings of candied nuts, caramel, maple, sap, mature oak, and brown sugar. Finishes concentrated, sweet, pruny, and huge. Might be too much for those brandy lovers whose preferences lean towards delicacy and nuance. Best Buy. P.P.
