Nose: Fruity, sweet and spicy. Very smooth and polished. Fresh white grapes, green apples, sultanas and a distant hint of candlewax. Also pollen. Also slightly vegetal. Very nice, but also a bit…ehm…conservative?
Mouth: Sweet and rounded, and very much in line with the nose.
Finish: Sweet, medium long and slightly drying. But not very exiting.
If you’re looking for an affordable and easygoing cognac: look no further. This montifaud is smooth as a baby’s butt and treacherously drinkable. It isn’t overly engaging, though. Still: great value for money.
