The '79, at 41 years in oak, offers an incredible nose that is a dead ringer for Rainwater Madeira. It's beautiful, woody, and shows the lovely sweet oxidation of cooked fruits. In addition it retains this remarkable fresh streak that is critical to a balanced profile. The fruits are reminiscent of the North African desert. Succulent raisins, dates, figs, and candied strips of fruit leather made from a variety of melons. Honey and molasses kiss the tannins rounding out the harder edges of the wood, which is more prominent than it is in the '75 vintage. A revisit of the nose reveals a hint of natural gum sap, somewhere between fresh rubber and sweet bubble gum. The palate confirms the Madeira connection, the bright acidity, its cut across the palate, and flash of alcohol are so familiar and comforting as well as refreshing. Celery seed widens the spice profile of the wood. The finish is medium in length and perfectly balanced between the sweet and savory notes. It's been quite some time since we've seen 40+ year spirits under the $100 mark, but thanks to the strong dollar and the direct relationship with Domaine Seailles, good times in ancient brandy are here again!

I am so impressed with the aromatics and mouthfeel of this 41 year old Armagnac. Showing first are multiple dried and baked nuances of dried fruitcake, blackstrap molasses, medjool dates, dried fig, candied ginger, toasted orange rind, and hickory smoked honey. There is a warmth that lingers far longer than most Armagnac's I've tried and I genuinely enjoy it sip after sip. This is a stand out bottle and if you are a collector this is one you should have in your repertoire.

Anything that has rested in wood for 41 years is special. I am awed that the producer is willing to wait so long. The result of this effort, in this case, is an Armagnac that is rich and concentrated with a round and creamy mouth feel. Full bodied, it has pronounced caramel flavors and a tongue coating long finish.
