L'ENCANTADA, 'TATTOO SERIES' NO. 3

 

ARMAGNAC, FRANCE

 

 

In the small but mighty community of Armagnac collectors and connoisseurs, few producers have created the stir of L’Encantada. A small band of Armagnac enthusiasts launched the company, in 2011, and it took almost no time at all for a cult-like following to develop, with retailers and auction houses scouring the market for rare, get-'em-before-they’re-gone releases. 

 

Take their recent "Tattoo Series," a partnership with PM Spirits. The first installment, from 2021, rapidly sold out, and last year's Tattoo Series No. 2 vanished from shelves just as quickly.

 

Well, No. 3 in the series has dropped, and we’re thrilled to be able to bring it to you, and at one of the best prices around.

 

A blend of Armagnac from six different casks — including Del Cassou 1986, Grand Mole 1990, and Le Pin 2005 — this is a cask-strength brandy, aged in Gascony oak, and finished in ex-Bourbon barrels. As with all bottles in the series, it is unfiltered, with no additives in the mix.

 

It must be noted that, while this finishing touch has brought a layer of inestimable complexity, it also resulted in the bottling losing its formal designation as "Armagnac." (To be legally labeled “Armagnac,” the spirit must be aged exclusively in French oak.) 

 

As with every installment in the Tattoo Series, L'Encantada takes its label art seriously; this one's a partnership with the New York-based tattoo artist Laura Leonello, who has garnered a devoted following in her own right.

 

Folks, this is the next masterpiece for your collection — capturing the Armagnac terroir in all its depth, and conveying it with unforgettable intensity. Please don’t miss it!
