This is a cigar lover's dream brandy! It’s Laubade’s most limited standard release with only 1200 bottles released for the globe annually. Deep, dark tones transport you to the black Oak forests of Gascogne and you may want to bring a tent, you’re going to want to stay. The less-heralded variety Baco takes center stage in this beauty. Rich tones of tobacco leaf, toasted earth, pine and a hint of sweet dark fruit are just a few of the characteristics we found when we recently tasted this again! The palate is elegant, yet retains some of the grit one expects in Armagnac... grab one of these, spark your favorite smoke, sit back and enjoy.
Château de Laubade's production is entirely estate sourced, unlike other producers in Armagnac. They buy no outside grapes, but more impressively, they make their own casks from estate harvested Gascony oak trees. The production of Armagnac predates that of Cognac by 150 years, and with that added experience, it's no wonder these are the brandies serious connoisseurs are drawn to.
