|Absinthe Pernod Fils "Garanti Fabriqué en 1913"
This is the classic "benchmark" Pernod Fils with the labels overprinted "Fabriqué en 1913"
(made in 1913). This is a very rare bottling - these bottles were the very last stock produced
by Pernod before the ban in 1914. They were sent to Holland for safekeeping and a small
quantity were released 25 years later for export in 1938 with this special overprinted label.
The balance of the stocks was unfortunately destroyed by bombing during the war. Photos
show the bottle still covered in the original cellar dust!
|50ml samples of vintage Armagnac, Cognac, Rum and Calvados
From 1805 to 1960's
|We had never done anything quite like this before: At Finest & Rarest we wanted to celebrate years of
success with something very special for our clients, guess what we did...
We cracked open some bottles. 3 bottles of Armagnac, 4 bottles of Cognac, 6 bottles of Rum, and 2 bottle
of Calvados. Nothing modern, but exclusively bottles from 1858 to 1960!
We thought that it would be a great idea to offer samples from these wonderful bottles so that our clients
could enjoy the prestigious spirits they contain without having to purchase a full bottle. Plus, we think
that they make incredible and unusual gifts for birthdays and the year-end season. Imagine yourself
enjoying a glass of a 150+ year old Cognac with your family and friends after a delicious dinner. That's
exactly what we had in mind with this idea.

tannins ... dusty hay notes, then dark rye bread, prunes, pears, blackcurrants

aromatic smoke of port infused cigarillos.

|A. A. Baker Battle Axe Jamaica Rum c1960 - 50ml sample
Nose: ... The alcohol content is not noticeable, I do not have an unpleasant
sting. Instead, just come across a lot of Jamaica rum flavor, such as bananas,
grilled pineapple, citrus or nutty-grassy portion. I like it to the best here!
Palate: ... I have the highest notes in top form! If I had to type in a distillery, it
would most likely be Hampden or Long Pond. ... Banana and pineapple are very
present, as well as humus and citrus influences. ...
Great, mouth-filling, slightly astringent rum with perfect ballance. Right, really
Finish: Fruity notes go over into anise. This is Jamaica, as I like it!
