Patrick,
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.

Smooth, light, not super intense. Apricot, fruits, cinnamon.
 
Scott
Scott,
Beautiful, full, mellowed fruit flavor. Lots of plummy, jammy tasting notes with a touch of spice. Delicious!
 
Ashley
Ashley,
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.

Color: amber Nose: sweet vanilla Palate: grape sweet oak caramel Finish: medium length, sweet but a slight burn Seems very good for its price
 
Alex
Alex,
Great brandy for the price, in my opinion it easily competes with cognacs 2-3x the price. One of my favorite everyday sippers.
 
Mat
Mat,
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.

DUELLYN,
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

Sweet Vanilla aroma, Spicy/Sweet with carmel and oak notes. Nice, but a bit more spicy than I like my Brandy.
 
Arthur
Arthur,
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!

Timothy,
Not a big brandy fan.....but if the world ended this would be the one I wanted for a last sip.
 
Sara
Sara,
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
 
Nicholas
Nicholas,
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.
 
Daniel
Daniel,
Very tasty, but not my favorite.
 
Israel
Israel,
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.
 
Michael
Michael,
Interesting. Sweet and spicy. Vanilla and cinnnamon. I would drink this again and at this price probably will
 
Christopher
Christopher,
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.

James,
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.
 
John
John,
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.

Too sharp and spicy for my taste.

Delicious! Warm, sweet with just a hint of spice. No bitter after notes. No lingering unpleasant aftertaste.

Michael,
A nice combination of spicy and sweet.

DOUGLASS,
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.
 
Antti
Antti,
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.

Rebekah,
Wasn't to my taste, with a harsh edge that reminded me of Jack Daniels.
 
Brian

Fantastic! Smooth!
 
Igor
Igor,
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.

Meh... Not great.

Daniel,
This is one of the best cognac/brandy you will buy. Now I understand why Churchil only drank Ararat with his cigars.
