Calvados Boulard V.S.O.P. is a Calvados from Pays d’Auge. It is issued of blending of different Calvados Pays d’Auge from 4 to 10 years old. They will stay in the casks for the necessary time to obtain a perfect dissolve. A well balanced harmony between vanilla, wood and ripe apples.
I’ve been working at Lucey’s Lounge for almost a year. I started working at Lucey’s just after I moved to NYC, in the summer of 2013.
I chose the Calvados Boulard V.S.O.P. for this cocktail because the quality to mixability ratio was spot on. Although it is very fine on its own, the V.S.O.P. is light enough to be joined by other spirits. The Boulard V.S.O.P. is perhaps one of the most versatile Calvados’ on the market today.
Enjoy it slowly and pay particular attention to the nose throughout.
