The best armagnacs that will make you love this drink

How much do you taste armagnac? And how often? Only hen you travel to France? We’ll show you 3 of the best armagnacs that will make you love this alcohol from home.

This complex drink of French origin, is a brandy produced in the French region of Armagnac, in the southwest of the country. It is obtained from the distillation of dry white wine from four different grape varieties: baco22A, colombard, folle blanche and ugni blanc. The armagnac ends up being aged in oak barrels. The older it is, the more expensive it is and the more complex its flavours.

We show you three bottles of Armagnac that will be worth tasting to make you fall in love with French brandy. They vary both in alcoholic strength and in price

Delord Bas-Armagnac l’authentic 45.9%

A very special armagnac that if you’re willing to invest in it will return the favor. It’s not a bottle though if you’re starting to taste armagnac. If you have already tasted several styles, we recommend this as a real treat. It is a blend of very old armagnacs that have aged around 30 years in oak barrels, selected to represent the most typical Delord tasting notes. Grassy nose, vanilla and coffee. Creamy taste, banana, plums and toasted notes. Long and smooth but rubbery finish.
