Email the folks at D&M Liquor in San Francisco. They specialize in French booze, and can tip you off to some amazing stuff at different price points. They have great customer service, and will put together a selection of fine brandies for you after you explain what you're looking for. They also have great "of the month" type clubs for armagnac, cognac and calvados. I've subscribed to their champagne club before and it was worth every penny. I've also had them assemble half-case samplers for me, which is a great way to get a broad introduction to different representative styles of a particular spirit.
Good idea. I normally buy my stuff from k&l and bevmo. But none of those places will have the Armenian Brandys FYI.
that looks interesting, is there anything it compares to in terms of taste?
Also we made it to front page of SF... keep it going folks
I want to buy some Armagnac. I've been looking at laubade, ravignan, darroze, and boingneres but the dizzying array of offerings has me confused. Anybody have a lot of knowledge and experience with armagnac and would be willing to help me navigate?
Apparently master of malt has boingneres samples for sale. Might buy a bunch of those first
Unfortunately idk much about armanac other than that its is made of a blend of several grapes rather than 1 grape like cognac. I hope someone pops in and give some recommendations, i would be interested too.
I have a 1963 Marquis de Puysegur Armagnac that tastes pretty good, but I would take a 53' Tesseron cognac over that at about the same price or less.
