Leopold Rafffin Napoleon glass cognac

I did never taste Léopold Raffin Cognac before, so let’s kick of with their Napoleon! Léopold Raffin was established in 1889, by it’s name-giver  “Leopold Raffin”, for more than 120 years Leopold Raffin stands for great passion and quality from this mid-sized family house.

This  Léopold Raffin Cognac Napoleon  is composed with eaux-de-vie from the Grande Champagne, Petite Champagne and Fins Bois Cognac terroirs . This cognac is mahogany colored which is very nice! In terms of taste it does not taste as old as the color does expect.

 

The tasting notes of Léopold Raffin – Napoleon are:

The color: mahony with a deep-red color.
The nose: volatile aroma’s, don’t wait to long sipping it… Eucalyptus nose, sweet vanilla, gingerbread, dried plums and coffee notes.
The taste: Eucalyptus taste, gingerbread, dried plums and some hints of coffee. Not very complex. Structure is watery for a Napoleon quality.
The after-taste: reasonable duration, quite sweet.
The origin: Grande Champagne, Petite Champagne and Fins Bois.
The Age: unknown, probably an average of 10 years old.
The price: 72 euros via the Internet.
Price / quality ratio: a 6,5. A little too expensive for the quality.
