Lecompte - 5 Year OldFruit-packed Calvados
Calvados Lecompte 5 is a fruity Calvados with discreet woodiness which compliments the light, lively apple flavours.
Before transferring to more mature barrels (known as ‘red barrels’) to help bring out its mellow flavours, this Calvados Pays d’Auge spends several months in small new oak casks, providing a delicate touch of vanilla.
The Cellar Master says: ‘The most fruit-packed Lecompte Calvados.’
LECOMPTE 5 years old Calvados is a combination of the fruity lightness of the apples with the subtle touch of wood from the small casks it was first aged in. The initial casks are made of moderately toasted French oak which give the spirit a delicate aroma of vanilla. This Pays d'Auge Calvados is further matured in older casks (called russet barrels) to allow the full fruitiness of this exceptional spirit to slowly develop and to blossom.
