The aromatics here are sublime... rich, complex, dense, yet so elegantly played. As with all the Cognacs of Guillon Painturaud, the Hors D'Age expresses so well what Cognac should be. This is in its own class, really. I don't recall anything this refined and seductive. The blending here is magic... elegance on nose and palate, satin length with a persistence that is remarkable. I have had very little that tops this.
