COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Aged in armagnac barrels provided by artisanal distillery Esquerre-Bounoure from France. Our second international collaboration is a truly unique journey that takes us back to 1934. A Dutch born airplane designer Robert B.C. Noorduyn, created one of the most successful bush planes of all times, the Noorduyn Norseman in Montreal in 1934. Norseman was produced from 1935 to 1959. Over 900 Norsemans were built during this period and known to have been registered and/or operated in 68 countries.

Norseman has starred in several movies, including "Captains of the Clouds" with James Cagney.

Skyview (6115) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JAN 13, 2017
Sampled from 750ml bomber and shared by Guerde. Pours a semi-clear golden copper amber colored brew with an average sized off-white head that slowly dissipates and leaves behind some excellent lacing. Aroma of brown sugar, roasted nuts, caramel malt, orange zest and a touch of powdered malt. Taste is full bodied, with flavors of raisin, brown sugar, mild brandy, apple and some orange zest. Finish is semi-sweet and a little boozy, followed by a powdery brown sugar aftertaste. Light oxidation but still enjoyable.

Bottle shared by Andy. Amber color. Sweet, brown sugar. Very heavy palate, alcohol is actually pretty well hidden. I a! Sadly not getting the Armagna.

Bottle, thanks for sharing! Pours a clear copper amber with a white head that dissipates edges. Aroma has lots of sweet grains, bread and a bit of cognac underlying. Flavor has a combination of sweet bread and cognac with some earthy sweet grains backing.

Brettsky06 (536) - Manitoba, CANADA - DEC 2, 2016
Pours a murky light brown color. Aroma is dried fruit and booze. Very sweet taste with heavy booze, definitely some more fruit in there. Hints of wood as well. Thick texture almost like a syrup.

3.5
ljthiessen (1510) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - NOV 22, 2016
Bottle. Murky mahogany pour without much head. Aroma is boozy and spicy, some caramel and toffee notes, plum, quite sweet. Taste is sweet up front, caramel and toffee, hints of dark fruit, wood, some spicy, peppery notes toward the end. Not exactly balanced, but really interesting and fairly tasty in smaller quantities.

3.5
northropfrye (3732) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - NOV 11, 2016
Dark brown body off white head not much retention or lacing. Aroma of sweet dried fruit and biscuits. Taste is quite sweet. Has a barley wine element to it. Rich and flavourful. Borders on cloying but I like it over all. Abv well masked
