Boulard 'XO Auguste' Calvados
Alcohol Level: 40.0%
Bottle Size: 700ml
This XO Calvados from Normandy distillery Boulard is named in homage to their founder, Pierre Auguste. All the way back in 1825, he opened the house, and since then, the great Calvados has been flowing. Top work from both Pierre Auguste and Boulard with this refined Calvados, which is a blend of Calvados aged for 6 to 15 years.
Robust and dessert-like, look for a very dark, ruddy hue and nutty scent that suggests pecans, toffee and oak. This brandy needs some time to open up in the glass, but rewards with layers of nut brittle, cocoa and espresso, finishing with a spiced, lingering fade. Packaged in a hefty, fancy bottle meant for gifting.
