Christian Drouin Sélection Calvados Brandy Tasting Notes

Nose: Crisp, fruity, and dangerously easy to drink, this obviously youthful calvados deviating a little from the classic flavor profile, towards something resembling a German-style Obstler, with fresh, vibrant, almost gossamer apple and pear flavors, a little iris, white pepper, and cider vinegar on the nose.

Palate: It has the barest hint of movie-theater "popcorn butter" on the mid-palate, and some aloe and demerara sugar on the back end.

Finish: Refreshing.

Distillery Information

The house sat on a farm with an apple orchard, and Drouin Sr. harvested the apples on his estate in hopes of seeing a return.
