It's damned good stuff. A top-notch brandy, with nice fruit elements. This would be great as a palate
cleanser/stomach bracer between courses in a large meal, as well as an evening drink to relax with.

It reminds me of an eau d'vie, but more mature and rounder.

That's because Calvados IS barrel aged Eau de vie. ;)

Ordered a bottle of Lemorton 25-year aged Calvados (along with entirely too many bottles of absinthe) today.  Very much looking forward to trying this.
