Beyond the Label
With more maturity, the Lecompte Calvados 12 years has a more dominant palate and aroma. It’s a specific type of apple brandy, heralding from the Lower Normandy region of France.
Lecompte’s 12 Year Old Calvados is exceptionally fruity, complemented by notes of hazelnuts, cinnamon, nutmeg and liquorice. This works especially well over ice or in cocktails.
Critic tasting note: “Finished in port wine barrels, this Calvados has a relatively dry, bold character. Rich aromas include baked apple and caramel, with a hint of sherry. Meanwhile, the palate starts with tea, cedar and oak, rounding out to caramel and toffee on exceedingly long finish spiked with stewed apple, orange peel and nutmeg. The overall effect is lots of flavor, but not much sweetness, making for a food-friendly sip.” – 91/100, Wine Enthusiast
