TASTING NOTES – PAUL BEAU HORS D’AGE

Nose

All kinds of varnishes and bourbon-like wood. Then scents of ripe bananas, peach jam and pomegranate juice, followed by notes of flowers, earth and rancio. Amazing complexity and broad flavor profile.

Palate

Good intense arrival, very bourbon-like. There are notes of toasted wood, exotic fruits, peaches, melon, and honey. An intense oak aroma tends to overwhelm the rest of the flavor profile. Then vanilla, oak spices, wood bitters, quite a bit of bitterness, and loads of varnished wood.

Finish

Long persistence. A bit bitter. All oak now, very drying, green tannins, tannic bitterness.

Overall, the Paul Beau Hors d’Age is a product of excellent quality. The nose makes you dream, with an incredibly structured, complex, and intense flavor profile. In the finish, the woody component is however too dominant, overwhelming the rest of the aromas.

Rating: 87
