Hands down, the Delord 25 is one of my all time favorite Armagnacs. First thing I get on the nose are dried dates, dark raisins, apricots, followed by a little toffee and creamy caramel sauce. The palate promises all of the notes on the nose, plus a little potpourri, cedar chest spice, and toasted almond- rancio perhaps? I've hosted a number of armagnac tastings at home, and even when the Delord 25 year old competes with vintage armagnacs from top producers, it is almost always voted the favorite.
