L'Encantada Armagnac Tattoo Series #2
Tattoo Series #2:Beacon of hope Grape Brandy Finished in Ex-Bourbon Casks
This blend from ten 24-36 year old single casks has been traditionally aged in Gascony oak barrels. It is then finished in Weller bourbon casks, therefore losing its official Armagnac appellation of origin. The labels feature a hand-selected tattoo artist known for their celebrated designs and artistry. Tattoo Series #2 is blended from the following single casks:
Castillon 1988 #61
Lassalle 1986 #9
De Belair 1997 #36
De Belair 1986 #6
Del Cassou 1985 #25P
Laoué 1988 #46
Lassalle 1991 #8
De Belair 1989 #19
Del Cassou 1994 #50
Lassalle 1992 # 38
These casks have been individually finished for 1-3.5 months in barrels that previously held Weller bourbon. They are then blended together in a foudre and rested for a few months before bottling.

Based in Vic-Fezensac, Southern France, L'Encantada curates Armagnac selections based on "authenticity, tradition and know-how." The producers for their independent bottlings distill directly in the heart of their fields, with a mobile Alembic Armagnacais still. Their cellarmaster's selections are "barrel raw" – neither their color nor their alcohol content are modified. L'Encantada has quickly made a name for themselves in the spirits community, offering impressive vintages from previously unknown estates.
