About this release
What’s poppin’ brothers and sisters? Still recovering from that wild 88’s Party the other day? Since life’s short and there’s no time for rest, let’s switch the club for the hood and enter the next era, the trashy and funky 90’s!
This 27 years old Original Gangster came straight from Lil’ Gascony and got some heavy artillery in the bag – 100% uncut product (52,2%)! As we know it from L’Encantada this is another lost style from a family that stopped pushing P.
Gangs from the States have seizured most of the product, leaving only 120 bottles left in the barrel. This makes the 1993 Belair our rarest release of the year.
If you nose it first you get smashed by highly addictive creamy scents of milk chocolate, nuts, caramel and coffee – a liquid Tartufo dessert! The second sniff reveals pleasantly sour physallis jam and is rounded off by a sparkling orange peel note.
Get your palate straight! It’s incessantly firing roasted espresso, dark chocolate and stewed apricots – killing you oily with sweet caramel and a heavy body. Leaving behind grilled oranges and Crème Brûlée all over the place.
We pay special attention and care to transparency in our cask selection. Therefore, we share all the data we could gather from the producer:

A fine Armagnac in an old style. Great choice! Get this! (90/100)slowdrink.de
Nice, distinct Bas-Armagnac (86/100)WhivieBlog
Honestly, this is not my favorite style of armagnac. It is a very relevant one, but a tad too oaky for my tastebuds. In fact, I think I preferred the young and funky Cutxan to this De Belair. But again, just my point of view. (85/100)Hors d’Age
