Those who have been fortunate enough to have tasted and experienced the Au.Ra have this to say
"Tasting this unique 30-year-old brandy is a very personal experience. The first impression is of its beautiful golden amber color. AU.RA is intensely aromatic, which is one of its most delightful characteristics. And the aromas are as diverse as they are intense. The most common being orange blossom, vanilla, milk chocolate, pickled ginger, dried sweet figs and roasted hazelnuts. After a first nose, this full-bodied brandy opens up to a palate of soft lingering flavours of nuts, coffee and sherry. The final impression of AU.RA ends in a creamy, balanced finish that leaves one with a pleasant reminder of all that has gone before."
Everything about this brandy is so so personal.
