Adrien Camut 12 Year Old Calvados Pays d'Auge (750ml)

SKU #680057 93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark This 12-year-old bottling from Adrien Camut is thrilling for its age. Light amber in color, the warm, friendly aromas of wildflowers and honey swirl in contrast to the bracing spice in the mouth. On the midpalate, you encounter serious apple-peel flavor, smoky grilled apple, and complex, dry tannins, that continue through the long finish. (JW) Inner quote mark (11/2018)

K&L Notes

We knew 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's 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.
