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 1858 to 1960's
We’ve never done anything quite like this before: At Finest & Rarest we wanted to celebrate the end of
2017 with something very special for you, guess what we did...
We have cracked open some bottles. 2 bottles of Armagnac, 3 bottles of Cognac, 3 bottles of Rum, and 1
bottle of Calvados. Nothing modern, but exclusively bottles from 1858 to 1960!
I personally thought that it would be a great idea to offer samples from these wonderful bottles so that
you can enjoy the prestigious spirits they contain without having to purchase a full bottle. Plus, I think
that they make incredible and unusual gifts for 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 I had in
mind with this idea.
All bottles and antiques are shipped in secured
boxes, no risk of breakage. WE UNCONDITIONALLY
GUARANTEE EVERY DELIVERY. In the very unlikely
event that a bottle gets lost, we will replace it
immediately or refund your money in full.
We take credit cards, debit cards and bank
transfers. We can also take payments over phone,
email or fax thanks to our virtual terminal secured
and managed by PayPal. See all details after
validating your shopping cart.

Old Demerara Rum Keeling 1959 - 50ml sample

Nose: Something of a wooden still wafts through here, soft, not sharp, quite
deep. Licorice, bananas, citrus, apricots ...
Palate: Thick, heavy, dark, heated, rich. Vanilla starts the party, then oak and
tannins ... dusty hay notes, then dark rye bread, prunes, pears, blackcurrants
and figs; with very little spice or anise coming through. It was lusciously made
... at last comes the dark burnt sugar and some caramel notes, black cake and
fruit, to swell the taste buds.
Finish: Warm, fruity, with salt ... tannins again, a little bitter, followed by the
aromatic smoke of port infused cigarillos.
