Wine EnthusiastAlthough Hors d'âge translates as the subtle phrase "beyond age," the contrary label trumpets that this brandy is aged 12 years. This seems apt as there's little subtlety about what's in the bottle either: rich, bulldozer-bold flavors ranging from buttery brioche to sweet caramel and toffee, braced up with notes of allspice and espresso on the surprisingly creamy and rich finish.
