.ragnaud-sabourin – vs no.4

The chaps from Ragnoud-Sabourin have been distilling and blending grape varieties since 1850, and are still at it, following the traditional recipes of their ancestors. Their No.4 cognac is the entry-level cognac of the brand.

41% abv, €51

04_ragnaud-sabourin-no-4-vs-cognacNose: sweet, glucose syrup, nougat, fruit, aprocots, mango, almond milk, spicy, nutmeg
Palate: sweet, creamy honey, floral, rose(petals), spice, white pepper, a hint of nutmeg, a whiff of new leather
Finish: medium long, sweet, creamy honey, floral, roses

Conclusion: This is much better from what I expected after the previous three days. I am either getting used to the sweetness, or they have ramped up the quality of the spirit.
