.louis royer – vsop


Ah yes. Another cognac from the bee-keeping family. Hidden behind door number 14 of the Drinks by the Dram Cognac Advent Calendar 2016.

Nose: sweet, honey, citrus, lime juice, fresh fruit, juicy pears, sweet apricot, berries, red berries, raspberries, gooseberries, jasmine tea
Palate: fresh, creamy honey, fruit, berries, raspberries, gooseberries, citrus, lime zest, jasmine tea
Finish: fresh, fruity, citrus, lime zest, medium long

Conclusion: Ooh-la-la, c’est magnifique! That’s my best French, and probably not even entirely correct. What I meant to say is: I like this! At first the smack-in-your-face sweetness is there, but after a short (luckily) while, this is replaced with the fresh citrus-fruit notes. Yum!
