Description

Samalens is one of the leading brandy companies across the world, and is extremely popular in Taiwan and Japan.

Although it is often considered the more 'rustic' counterpart to Cognac, Armagnac is often more artisan and provides a better value than Cognac. While Cognac is distilled twice, Armagnac is only distilled once, which preserves more flavours and aromas.

Traditionally, Armagnac was aged in black oak barrels from the local Monelzun forest.

Tasting Notes


EYE:
Brilliant and clear, Samalens Armagnac VSOP is a rich deep amber, with gold highlights and a viscous texture when swirled in the glass.
NOSE:
A bouquet of dried fruits like fig, raisin, and apricot, orange zest with just the faintest touch of white pepper, almond and vanilla . It is complex and continues to unfold.
MOUTH:
It is full, rich and round on the palate, with the finesse of a fine, well-balanced Armagnac.

Food Pairing

Traditionally Armagnac is considered difficult to pair with food, but this is simply not the case.
Try any of these pairings and learn first-hand:
  • Roasted game such as duck or venison with roast vegetables
  • Foie gras
  • Pear or apple compote served with vanilla bean ice cream
  • Bitter-sweet chocolate mousse with dried fruits
