Armagnac Domaine Rounagle 1984 - “Here be Dragons”
The 1984 is for those who seek the path less traveled. For ye who packs a machete when going on vacation. Blake, Ryan and I literally could not look away from the maw of the beast. I had to go back three different days to make sure I wasn’t hallucinating. It’s like making out with She Hulk. I can’t freaking wait for my bottles to land. This is a millesime, not a single cask. Hugh has 4 casks of 1984 and blends them back together every winter. So if the demand for this pushes past 100 bottles, I can try to ask for more and see what he can do for us. All the flavors are full throttle. Nothing subtle here my friends. A kalimotxo, but made with Dr Pepper instead of coke. And a powerful indian tonic / quinine tartness with citrus zest - not tannic, just full on pucker!!! Crushed Cranberries and walnuts. Spiced Plum butter. Walking into a cedar-lined closet. Hand made, small batch black licorice. And a lick of worcestershire sauce. All turned up to 11.
