In the Glass

Appearance

Brilliant bronze color.

Aromatics

The nose is wonderfully complex with fresh juice, caramel apples, and rich baked apples competing for dominace with waves of spice, oak, dried fruits, and a subtle cinnamon heat.

Flavor

The palate is a natural extention of the nose delivering rich, layered fruit and caramel core with assertive brown spices rising on the finish met by toasted oak and delicate mineral accents.

Intensity & Texture

Full-bodied with hedonistic fruit notes while keeping a perfect balance and delivering a finish that beautifully carries on for minutes.

Cool Factor

A

It's impossible for me to give any Christian Drouin product anything less that an "A" for cool as these represent some of the finest spirits the world has to offer.

Value Grade

B

These handcrafted spirits from Christian Drouin are not cheap but how could they be? Every offering is well worth the asking price even when the asking price is north of $200.

Analysis

The Christian Drouin 25 years old is their oldest Calvados offered before entering into the rare, vintage dated range. Unlike the vintage range, which is a unique "snowflake" the 25 years is a blend of Calvados aged for a minimum of 25 years. The goal is to maintain a consistent offering year after year that meets the very highest standards. Mission accomplished in our view as the 25 has long been a favorite. It's hard to set the glass down.

How to Enjoy

Sip neat in a brandy glass after dinner or at any special occasion when you and your guests deserve the very best.
