Old Brothers MLC 2001-2021 (61.3%)
Do you know the exact signification of MLC? Monymusk Light Continental, eh that’s quite contradictory with those 18 years under the tropics, right? But we’ve the same sh*t with some Hampden such as Habitation Velier C<>H for example. Anyway we’re not here to talk about letters, we’re only interested in what’s inside the bottle!
Château de Gaube 1962-2020 (48.6%, Wu Dram Clan)
What a chance to taste another of those old armagnacs selected by the Wu Dram Clan! The last time it happens I was not disappointed to say the least, so I have high expectation for this one too!
