Vieille Reserve Cognac Paul Giraud
« soft, delicate, sweetish nose like stone fruit ; palate shows subtle, honeyed fruit ; mid-to long-length, showing its twenty five year age. »
Cognac more elaborate with a beginning of rancio characteristic of old eaux-de-vies.
Fragrances more melted fresh stone fruit (apricot and peach) then cooked (plum and prune) at the end of tasting.
