Léopold Raffin – Napoleon

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!
