Drouin 15 Years Old 1990 (Alchemist)

Alchemist 15 Year Old Calvados Pays d’Auge Review: Not too fruity, this expression leans heavily towards the maturation flavours of tannic and woody spices, I’m still slightly bemused by the almost wood smoke aroma on the nose and a very dry apple smell. Takes time to open up on the palate like toffee or chocolate that needs to be melted on the tongue before its flavour starts to release. Still, excellent quality and hugely enjoyable! 90/100

Pacory 20 Years Old

Pacory Calvados Domfrontais 20 ans Review: Super-smooth, fruit juice then wood carried on oils, full of herbal tannins and utterly delicious – this reminded me of eating apple sauce before a mouthful of sage-wrapped roast pork – that brilliant combination of flavours that whilst strong all work so well together and somehow become greater than the sum of its parts. 94/100

Lemorton 5 Years Old Réserve

Calvados-Lemorton-Reserve

Lemorton 5 ans Réserve Vieux Calvados Domfrontais Review: A delicious introduction to Lemorton Calvados Domfrontais, Lemorton Réserve presents full & ripe orchard fruits from the spirit character it is made from, with the oak ageing taming this and adding a little hint of caramelised sugar and vanilla. 84/100
