    As well as being two seperate regions in France, there is one major difference between Armagnac and Cognac. Whereas Cognac is distilled using a pot still (normally twice distilled), Armagnac is traditionally distilled using a column still - although a smaller version than the industrial column stills normally used to produce the likes of vodka. Armagnac stills result in a more aromatic brandy than is more flavourful at a younger age than Cognac, which takes time to develop in cask. As a result, Armagnac arguably has more character and depth at a more affordable price point, whereas Cognac demands the higher prices the older it gets due to the increasing complexity over time (what that DOES mean is you can get some incredibly old Armagnac at very reasonable prices, making them ideal for birthday and anniversaries, so get in touch!).

    Domaine Tariquet has been family owned since 1912 and is the largest independently owned single estate in France. Lightly toasted barrels impart subtlety and complexity, making Tariquet bottlings some of the most approachable in the Armagnac world.

    The VSOP is a blending of aged Armagnac, with a minimum of 7 years in barrel. There are distinct notes of marzipan, banana bread and classic French pastries - it's utterly delicious after a meal and would probably go well with cigars - I mean I'm guessing, I don't smoke, but I can imagine the sweet bread-y flavours would go well with soft smoky notes.
