From Armagnac di Montal distiller’s note:
“Appearance: A very clear, limpid appearance with long legs that fall slowly along the glass; it evokes sweetness, roundness and richness.

Palate: On the palate, it evokes white fruit and roundness. The aftertaste is very interesting with immediate exotic notes.”
