Chabot Napoleon Reserve Armagnac

A lovely variation from the lesser known producing region in France, Chabot Napoleon Armagnac is fresh, fruity and zesty.  My rating: 17/25

Lingering and full, a touch sharp perhaps due to the single distillation?

Serving tips:

Have only tried it neat in a snifter, but may benefit from a cube of ice to take the edge of the sharper finish.
