Gold of the Gascogne

Dear Reader,

In line with this post, here is another drink worth your attention. Again, it was introduced by friends while visiting.

Clotte de Manon comes from the best sites of the Armagnac region within the Gascogne:

Armagnac is known since 1461. It is distilled continuously only once, different to Cognac for example. Armagnac is aged only in new oak barrels made of black oak from the Gascogne.

Another specialty, the fruit wine used as basis for Armagnac cannot be sulfurated, or otherwise altered, or have additives. Armagnac is as pure as it gets. Which makes it better than Cognac in my book.

And this Armangac is perfect after a good meal, or with a good cigar.

  1. Agree too – just love the stuff! Always got one on the go..
    To brighten your day..

    A circus owner runs an ad for a ‘lion tamer wanted’
    and two people showed up……
    One is a retired golfer in his late-sixties and the other is a
    drop-dead, gorgeous brunette with a killer body in her
    The circus owner tells them, I’m not going to sugar coat it.
    This is one ferocious lion. He ate my last tamer so you two
    had better be good or you’re history.”
    Here’s your equipment — a chair, a whip and a gun ……
    Who wants to try out first?”

    The gorgeous brunette says, “I’ll go first.”

    She walks past the chair, the whip and the gun and steps
    right into the cage. The lion starts to snarl and pant and
    begins to charge her. As he gets close, the gorgeous
    brunette throws open her coat revealing her beautiful, perfect naked body. The lion stops dead in his tracks, sheepishly crawls up to her and starts licking her feet and ankles. He continues to lick and kiss every inch of her body for several minutes, then lays down and rests his head at her feet.

    The circus owner’s jaw is on the floor! He says
    “That’s amazing! I’ve never seen anything like that in my life!”

    He then turns to the retired golfer and asks,
    “Can you top that?” The old golfer replies,

    “Possibly…but you’ve got to get that lion out of there first.
