Worth a buy.
I agree with the other reviews below, the nose is absolutely stunning, and while the palate is also very good the finish is short. If this were bottled at 43%-46% it would be amazing, but as it is, it's still worth the price for the nose alone.

value for £, love to try the 20 year old !
so smooth one can hardly feel it going down ones throat, hold it under your tongue and let it warm and release some citrus, sure it lacks legs, but its worth every penny at 30 squid,...which i once spent on a tot of 1911 nac at the hotel du vin, only cause that was my dads birth year, now i realise why people will spend thousands on a bottle, i smelt and tasted flavours i had never dreamt of !or come across in fifty years, and my final quick recommendation for malt lovers,.. go to Islay and spend as much time there as you can and drink as much Malt as you are able !

Beautiful nose
I find this hard to review, the nose is so amazing and wonderful the rest is almost a let down. My expectations were set so high when breathing this in that I was disappointed to find the nose and the palate weren't exactly alike - of course it never is but I wanted more.

Nose: Fresh, sweet and aluring. Vanilla, almond, honey, a little cinnamon and something citrusy.
Palate: Fresh but oaky with vanilla, caramel, marzipan and a hint of nutmeg
Finish: Light and somewhat short with almonds

I wish the palate had a little more sweetness and depth, as it is, it is light and fresh when I was expecting something heavier after the nose but it's not disappointing just unexpected. The finish is a little disappointing as it is short and light while I would expect something more lingering and complex in a 10yr old. Easy drinking though and I still can't get enough of that nose.

Fruity and smooth
Smooth, warming, touch of spice, nicely rounded, I get a faint whiff of liquorice

Lovely
Like a previous reviewer, im a whisky drinker and like to try different brandies for a change, and this is surely a superb example at a decent price. Give it a go, you wont regret it.

Mr
I buy this as a birthday present for a friend. The only time I taste it is when I go to Hambleton Hall for "lunch for less" it is a superb brandy which tastes as described above.

Speaking as a whisky drinker...
I've put the above because I'm not going to tell you I'm experienced with brandy when I'm not really. I took a punt on trying a well matured Armagnac. This is what I am getting:

On the eye: Amber +1 Perhaps a bit more orange-coloured than your average single malt. No idea if there is any colouring going on.

On the nose: raisins, honeysuckle, violets, plenty of vanilla, very delicate spice note - mace maybe?, something slightly creamy, slight note of banana, orange blossom. Quite interesting - you can breath this in a bit more deeply than a whisky.

On the palate: lemon zest, apricots, something quite sweet like a sugared almond. The mouth feel is not as thick as a whisky and the flavour is quite delicate I'm disinclined to add water.

And to finish: Cloves, plum stones, grapes, bit of fruity sourness (oranges?) and a bit of sugared almond again.

The nose is the main event - don't miss it!
