These Armagnacs (brandies) never cease to amaze me.  Bottled to order, advanced aged and yes, cheap as chips.  And best of all, the quality of this well-aged spirit is amazing.  So fresh, zesty and importantly intriguing.

Great for birthdays, anniversaries etc, or in my case, a chance to try something that is 49 years of age.

So, in 1974: launch of the Volkswagen Golf, Abba wins Eurovision with Waterloo, Rubik’s cube is invented, Easts and Richmond win the footy flags and Countdown starts.
