Domaine Louis Dupuy 36yr Astor Select Single Cask Bas-Armagnac - 1987

Item # 50676 750mL

The comparisons of Armagnac to Bourbon, especially well aged rare Bourbons, make plenty of sense. We've been leading that charge for a decade now and fully understand the undervalued nature of this noble category, especially with the dramatic sea changes in the pricing and availability of certain American Whiskies. That said, when Armagnac is this old and this good, there is no comparison. It's completely in a class of its own. From brandy distilled in the 1987 vintage, we tasted this out of a single cask while visiting the domaine last spring. After 36yrs of aging the spirit is still remarkably vibrant and high toned with glossy notes that remind us of sour cherry preserves, mandarin oranges, toasted coconut, ripe summer canteloupe, and a drying baking spice finish. Bottled at a natural cask strength with absolutely zero additives.

Staff Pick Notes

An absolute stunner of an Armagnac that to try is to believe. There is a lot of talk about the similarities between Armagnac and bourbon but the most obvious difference is one is made with corn, bourbon, and one is made from grapes, Armagnac. The corn in question is commodity level industrially grown corn made at the cheapest price. The wine made from grapes here are from old vines hand tended from many years from by the same family. That care and love bears fruit in the final product which is concentrated with flavor and depth a layers over confection, dried fruit and wood notes and show very slowly as you sit with the beautiful spirit.
