Calvados in the barrel at 20 to 25 years old is in a tricky, middle age – often not yet having developed the elegant older notes of 30 or 40 years but having lost some of its youthful verve. So, this amber-colored 25-year-old bottling walks a fine line. The nose is shy at first, enveloped in oak, but eventually it opens up to fresh and leafy notes, followed by warm apple pie. In the mouth, it’s a bit flabby and there’s a little too much wood throughout. Pleasant, but for the price, steer toward other Camut bottlings. (AOC Pays d’Auge 41% abv.)
