A 5 year old Armagnac with a light body and a great fruity flavour. This is a superb digestif with notes of apricot and oak, it is particularly good in a cocktail. Janneau 5 Year Old is produced entirely from double distilled eau de vie, using the original method of distilling with pot stills, the Double Distillation range offers the most versatile style of Armangnac from Janneau. This process produces a lighter body and concentrates the classic fruity flavours, giving this Armagnac extra smoothness.

It can be very confusing knowing what to buy when it comes to spirits in general. For instance in Scotland, the range of Whisky is staggering (as can the prices!). When it comes to Brandy/Cognac/Armagnac it can be equally overwhelming. As with all things you get what you are willing to pay for, bearing in mind the law of diminishing returns.
This Armagnac is well worth investigating. It may be a little more expensive than those on the starting block but for your hard-earned money, you will be rewarded with a spirit that is significantly smoother and satisfying. For a little more cash, its big brother is noticeably even smoother, but I think that for many folk this will be a very pleasing drink which they will not regret buying.
