Declassified Cognac. Really good, much cheaper.

Rich, burnt orange/mahogany color; excellent purity. First inhalations pick up plenty of vibrant grape jam, baked nectarine, kiwi, baked peach, and Danish pastry fragrances that are assertive without being aggressive; allowing for another few minutes of air contact, the aroma opens up even more offering tantalizing, off-dry scents of lemon drop, orange blossom, almond, and clove. Entry is supple, silky, gently sweet, and fruit salad ripe, with tangy background flavors of caramel and fresh honey from the hive; midpalate mirrors the entry phase, featuring now a toasted orchard fruit flavor that's baked, delicately spiced, and caramelized. Finishes long, ripe, balanced, and deeply satisfying. Applications in abundance for neat service in a tulip-shaped wine glass or in a classic brandy cocktail, like the Sidecar or Vieux Carré. A phenomenal value that outshines more than a few young VS and even VSOP cognacs and armagnacs.
