What the makers say: Laborie Alambic 5 year old Brandy

Rich and full in the mouth with lots of dried fruit, apricot and raisin. Honey and apricot on the nose, with an attractive wine note.

My View:

Nose: 7/10
Strong dried fruit, subtle wood undertones.
Palate: 7/10
Very fruity, with a difference. An almost potpourri element presumably coming from the red base wine?
Finish: 4/5
Soft and mouth filling. The dried fruit lingers on the smooth swallow.

Total: 18/25

Serving Suggestions

Neat in a snifter. A cube or two of ice. Superb for a 5 year old. One of the few brandies we have with a blended red wine element. Makes it very different and immediately distinguishable in a line up. Goes well with some top deck chocolate too!
