Park 28 Year Old "Lot 28" K&L Exclusive Single Barrel #401 Cask Strength Grand Champagne Cognac (750ml)
The Tessendier Family is BACK with another set of incredible single casks selected from their revered Cellar No 8. Only the very finest and most elegant eau-de-vie are aged in this special cellar and K&L was lucky enough to have access to some of the family's most special single casks. The big daddy of the bunch is this special single cask of Grand Champagne Cognac aged a minimum of 28 years and bottled at a whopping 44.5% alcohol. This fine cask requires a bit of time in the glass to really open up and will stand up nicely to a drop of spring water. At first, expect strong mint and deep, dark oak aromas, lacquer box, pipe tobacco, and a big, long, dry mouth feel. With the addition of the tiniest smidge of water and some air this bad boy really opens up with tons of tropical fruit (dried and fresh mango, passion fruit), dark earthy wood notes, and dried citrus peel (tangerines). The palate is long, bringing more spice and those dried fruit flavors to the finish. Definitely the most intense and powerful of the three casks and truly an EXTREME value considering the age and quality of the Cognac inside.
