Mandarine Napoleon 1980

Member Review by Pieta:

Deffinately not a good brandy - it taste like a cheap aspiritif! You can probably get it for under R70, but I would rather add R10 and buy something you can drink instead of drinking Napoleon Bardinet - do not waste your money...

Bad bad bad bad. Well what can one expect at the equivalent of £4 a bottle? Somewhat methylated in taste and aroma. Not pleasant. I'll stick to vodka or white rum.

Chatelle Napoleon (I tried 700ml $33.00)) is distilled for 5 years in small oak barrels from France. This will be a well-tasting drink for inexperienced brandy drinkers, but it lacks smoothness and is a little harsh. Still, a reasonable Brandy for the price ...only for the 'casual' after dinner drink. If you would like to skip these lower quality version, I suggest Pual Masson "Grande Amber" from California, More expensive, but superior taste, aroma, after-taste and alcohol content. My Raings againsed Paul Masson 'Grande Amber' - Against similar priced brandy: 6.5/10 Against High Quality "Grande Amber": 3.5/10

I tend to agree. Smells like meths (probably tastes like it too if only I knew what meths tastes like) and not a pleasure to sip. Not even coke makes it drinkable. Reminds me of our real plonk brandies that are so bad they don't reveal the supplier's name on the label - never mind the producer! Ronwin

A fine brandy with a well balanced, smooth taste and distinctive French brandy character.
