An excellent aged Calvados from Roger Groult, which finds the balance between freshness and age.
The Venerable is 25-years-old.
Official tasting notes:
Nose: Very complex floral bouquet.Persistent, good compromise between fruity and wooded notes. Old apple and Cherry wood characters with galangal and old orange peel flavours.
Palate: Good weight, has spice, a thick mouth-filling texture, and excellent length. Powerful and lasting in the mouth, smooth and subtle. This fine and well-rounded Calvados is honest and sharp.
The Groult family has produced traditional and premium Calvados in Pays d'Auge area (Normandy) for five generations. They double-distil through a wood-fired still.
