Christain Drouin Calvados Pays d'Auge Calle 23 Tequila Casks 48.8% 700ml
Calle 23 Angels, is a 10-year-old Calvados Pays d'Auge which we have finished aging in two old Calle 23 Tequila casks. These casks had previously contained Tequilas from the Los Altos region produced from Tequilana Weber agaves.
In the search for a perfect balance between agave and apple, Calle 23 Angels are the blend of finishing in Calle 23 casks in the first filling of 13 months, and the second filling of these casks with a 4-month maturation.
Nose: Powerful aromas of walnut, olive and truffle dominate, before giving way to notes of white chocolate and stewed apples.
Palate: Full and powerful
Finish: Aromas of grilled almonds.
Experimental by Christian Drouin Calle 23 Angels offers a powerful marriage between agave and apple for calvados with great character.
This limited edition was produced in only #1050 bottles
Three generations of the Drouin family have produced quality Calvados in the Pays d'Auge region, seeking to express the full complexity of the Normand cider apple varieties. As head of the Calvados Christian Drouin company, Guillaume Drouin represents the third generation of a family that has always been fascinated by the search for a perfect balance between different aromas and flavours. Guillaume Drouin is a qualified oenologist and agronomist. After acquiring experience in the elds of wine-making and rum he joined the family business in 2004. Working with his father on the aging of calvados, he took part in the creation of the company's great blends while looking for new product ranges that would highlight original aromatic associations. Guillaume is a man full of curiosity and enthusiasm. His passion for the world of flavours, tasting and the art of blending soon led him towards a new creation, that of a Gin based on the apples from his orchards. Thanks to its method of production and the number of aromatic substances that compose it, this Gin is without any doubt the spirit that offers the broadest possible spectre of composition: an almost in nite eld for creativity, a challenge both rich and fascinating in the search for symbiosis between apples, juniper and aromatics of world-wide origin.
