The Cognac

Leyrat Glory Cognac is a unique domain delight. Thanks to a fortunate oblivion that saw a group of barrels "forgotten", these eaux-de-vie have been left for more than 40 years to be strengthened and reduced. This means that this is a Cognac that has been allowed to age naturally to the perfect cask strength of 45% ABV.

This happened due to the storage of the casks at the back of the Paradise cellar of Layrat Cognac. Hidden from view, it is only in recent years that they have been rediscovered. In fact, there was no trace of the year in which the eaux-de-vie inside were distilled, but it was assumed that it was a minimum of four decades before it was discovered.

Eye: Warm, deep, old gold color.

Nose: Remarkable floral freshness with nuances of leaves, giving fine spices - remarkable cinnamon and pronounced aromas of fruit compote and quince.

Palate: Exceptionally smooth, full of peach and apricot, with a hint of resin and honey. An elegant and powerful finish.

A group of barrels, forgotten at the very bottom of the "Paradis" cellar, stored for decades on the LEYRAT estate, with no archives available to identify the year of distillation and whose alcohol level at the exit of the barrels has only been reduced naturally to 45° by the sole effect of time.

For a Cognac that is at least 40 years old, GLORY is remarkable for its liveliness and freshness.
