Adrien Camut 12 year old Calvados Pays d'Auge 750ml

SKU #680057

I've always known that Camut is considered the top producer in Calvados--the crème de la crème of apple spirits. The Camut 12 year, however, blows everything else out of the water--its quality is unreal. Following Pay d' Auge tradition it is double distilled. The second distillation tends to make the spirit more neutral in its youth, but more free of impurities which makes a big difference as it ages. The nose is a heavenly blend of barrel-aged baking spice with gobs of pristine red apple. The palate is soft, with more baked apple coating the roof of the mouth, before finishing in perfect harmony with the barrel influence. You must try this at least once before you die.

Camut makes fantastic Calvados and this 12 year old stands out as a perfect example of this producers craft. It is round,with pronouced apple flavors,and is toped off with a honey like aromas and taste. It is an interesting and delicious after dinner drink.
