Staff Pick Notes

I'm still thinking about this spirit, 3 days after I tried it. This Ch. Leberon spirit (sister estate to Domain d'Aurensan) hits you with an autumnal brown color, while notes of dried fig, baked apple, hazelnuts and savory smoke dance on the nose and palate. It's also bottled at a bold 49.9%ABV. I'm often prone to warning customers about higher proof spirits if they are unfamiliar with them, but this one is skillfully integrated and the strength amplifies the already deep, rich concentrated flavor. We've been hearing for a while that French Brandy is the next BIG thing (eg. Pappy, Yamzaki, etc.) and while I am still waiting for the other shoe to drop, I could stand to wait A LOT longer. That's just means more for me and those of us "in the know".
