Sempé 15 Year Old Armagnac is dark amber colored. It has gentle aromas of candied fruits and dried plums. In the mouth, it stretches from vanilla to subtle oak, developing notes of aged leather as it warms in the hand. There is a distinct taste of cocoa on its long finish. Armagnac is best served in a pear shaped glass with a round belly and tapered chimney or a champagne glass as opposed to a brandy snifter. Hold the glass at chest level and let the aroma waft up. Take a small sip to coat the mouth with its delicate flavors. As the glass and evening progress, your hand cupped on the glass will warm the Armagnac releasing new aromas and flavors.
