Behind door number three of the Drinks by the Dram Cognac Advent Calendar is the Merlet Brothers Blend Cognac bottled at 40%. Very sweet on the nose with aromas of red apples, oranges, vanilla, powdered sugar, raisin, apricots, honey and marzipan.

From the palate I can get mixed sweet fresh citrus and orchard fruits with soft spices, herbs, grapes, jasmine tea, rose pedals and dried fruits. There is something of wood polish, dirty leather and pencil shavings also in this cognac giving it a dry and bitter edge to all the sweetness. The finish is almost sugar cane sweetness and reminding me of a sweet dessert wine, a bit too sweet for me… Thanks Drinks by the Dram for sharing this!
