Darroze Armagnac Grand Assemblage 60 Year Review

Darroze Armagnac Grand Assemblage 60 Year Review


Based in Roquefort, Darroze is a father and son team that began operation in the 1974. Today they have bottled over 250 Armagnacs which include 50 different vintages.


Darroze currently has a partnership with 30 different producers.


Darroze has been bottling since 1974, but only started blending in 2011.


No use of sugars, tannins or caramels to speed up the aging process.


Region: Bas Armagnac


Age: at least 60 years


Grape varietals: Ugni Blanc & Baco


Proof: 84°


No water was added to this offering. The 84 proof is cask strength.


Color 👁️: Dark amber.


Nose 👃: Raisins. Orange zest. Caramel. Vanilla.


Palate 👅: Floral. Raisins. Peach. Nutmeg. Tobacco. Leather. Thick mouthfeel.


Finish 🏁: Unsweetened cocoa. Crème brûlée. Almond. Coffee beans. Dry. Very long in length.


Overall thoughts? As you might expect… a 60+ year old Armagnac is absolutely sublime. The mouthfeel is stellar… as is every component of this gorgeous spirit. Cognac gets the love, but give me a good Armagnac any day. This is fantastic!
