Artez Arvani Vanilla Flavored Armagnac
This naturally delicious liqueur is made by macerating 100% Madagascar Vanilla beans in barrels of young Bas-Armagnac for several months. After a touch of sugar is added this tasty blend is allowed to rest before it is carefully filtered and bottled at 40% ABV. If you like real vanilla taste, this is where you'll find it. Bartenders finally have a pure vanilla spirit for creating tasty vanilla cocktails, while it can also be served straight up, chilled or on the rocks.
4 stars / Highly Recommended!
"Mahogany color; very good clarity. Smells very nicely of Madagascar vanilla bean, honeysuckle, and brown sugar in the first sniffs... Entry is dense, intensely vanilla bean-like and yet there is clear evidence of the spirit base; midpalate is rich, but not unctuous, beany without being metallic, and balanced. Aftertaste is long, bitter-sweet, and honeyed. "
