Hine – Bonneuil 2006


Today’s door number 12 of the Cognac Advent Calendar by Drinks by the Dram revealed a sample of Hine – Bonneuil 2006 bottled at 42,8%. On the nose it shows me spices, leather, nuts, wood, darker flower aromas, pepper, ginger, banana, pear juice and cinnamon notes. Bit rough and harsher notes? Wood, nuts, leather and spices are overpowering it a bit for me…

The palate reveals some more sweet and soft fruit notes, creamy vanilla, elder flower blossom and syrup, ginger cake,  white pepper, dry cocoa powder, dirty leather, honey and dried apricots. Liking the palate more then the nose at the moment with its medium length finish, but it is a lovely, not overly sweet cognac. Thanks Drinks by the Dram for sharing this sample!
