Member Reviews and Ratings of Ararat Akhtamar 10 Year Old
Better to sniff than drink, when the vanilla comes through. However when drinking the spice and oak are a little bit overwhelming. Not a fan at the moment
Solid but nothing spectacular. Good for after dinner wins down.
Love the spice on the back end, the hint of vanilla really set it apart, thanks for the recommendation.
Slightly sweeter than most, but definitely smooth without question. Very clean finish.
First brandy in a long time. Smooth, I like it.
Nothing special, but drinkable.
Rich and fruity which is exactly what I was looking for.
A little sweet but really good.
Really smooth, mellow, perfect neat.
Smooth, light, not super intense.
Apricot, fruits, cinnamon.
Beautiful, full, mellowed fruit flavor. Lots of plummy, jammy tasting notes with a touch of spice. Delicious!
Sherry nose, nothing to write home about. Wonderful raisin spice and wood on the palate. Sweet. Three drops of water brings sweetness to the nose, fruit and a touch of bitter to the palate. Better neat.
Nose: sweet vanilla
Palate: grape sweet oak caramel
Finish: medium length, sweet but a slight burn
Seems very good for its price
Great brandy for the price, in my opinion it easily competes with cognacs 2-3x the price. One of my favorite everyday sippers.
Joint favourite from the tasting trio and better than the one 3x the price in my opinion. Loads of christmas spices on the nose, the palate has a real burst of fruity sweetness with vanilla in particular coming through on the finish.
Least fav of the tasting trio. Very earthy
Decent Brandy but 3rd best in tasting sample. Strong spice and a bit of an alcohol kick
Reminded me of insect repellent.
Sweet Vanilla aroma, Spicy/Sweet with carmel and oak notes. Nice, but a bit more spicy than I like my Brandy.
One of the first brandies I have tried and I'm a believer! Great nose, very creamy feeling with a lil spice and pear. The apricot, cinnamon and spice have a nice lingering finish - this will be a regular in my bar!
Not a big brandy fan.....but if the world ended this would be the one I wanted for a last sip.
That was a good taste too. The good stuff just keeps getting better as you drink it.
Smooth at first with a nice spicy at the end
An overall pleasant Brandy.
Pours a dark wild honey, looks rather viscous in the glass.
On the nose, sweet and buttery vanilla. Light plum and a spice I can't name support nicely.
First sip, a strong oak spice overpowers the subtle sweetness.
Second sip, vanilla and caramel complement the powerful spice. Light fruity notes appear reserved.
Finish is peppery and short.
Very tasty, but not my favorite.
I agree with the majority of other posts.
There was sweet smell mixed with spice and some butterscotch-like notes. The palate wasn't as sweet as I expected. Very little fruit but plenty of oak balancing the spice. Vanilla and some cinnamon. Not bad at all.
Interesting. Sweet and spicy. Vanilla and cinnnamon. I would drink this again and at this price probably will
Nose: quite sweet. Vanilla, butterscotch, some clover honey. Brandy grapes underneath.
Palate: That sweetness dissipates once the brandy hits the palate. Spice, but not much. Grapes, with some oak. Admittedly, not as much oak as one might expect at 10 years, as I would have thought the hot Yerevanian summers would have produced more oak influence. Some slightly underripe plums underneath.
Finish: The plums linger for a decent bit. There's a lasting bitterness that causes me to dock an extra star.
This is on par with many cognacs of the same value. Very enjoyable and nice to sample something of a craft from far away. I will get another bottle.
Warm notes of vanilla and caramel. Somewhat heavy on the notes of spice. Not much lingering on the pallet; flavor is enjoyable but wanes quickly.
Smooth and sweet, I enjoyed the hint of vanilla that made it taste delicious with coke!
Too sharp and spicy for my taste.
Very smooth and sweet
Delicious! Warm, sweet with just a hint of spice. No bitter after notes. No lingering unpleasant aftertaste.
A nice combination of spicy and sweet.
One of the best brandies I've tasted. Has a bite out of the bottle, but gets smoother with a splash of water. Can really taste the grapes.
It is a classic, rich, 10 year old Armenian brandy with a spicy finish.
A very dark & full bodied Brandy, to dark for my liking.
Very smooth to the pallet. It is absolutely wonderful after a fine cut of beef
Could smell the Carmel. I found it to be smooth and likable.
Wasn't to my taste, with a harsh edge that reminded me of Jack Daniels.
The first cognac I actually decided to buy. 8/10 purely because of the existence of the 20yo. This is belgian chocolate in liquid form.
First nonCalifornia brandy. Delicious and smooth
I've had Ararat before, this and Tblisi are my holy grails of bandy!
Meh... Not great.
This is one of the best cognac/brandy you will buy. Now I understand why Churchil only drank Ararat with his cigars.
