  1. I just opened a Gaston de Lagrange 3 stars bottled around late 1960s.. I’m surprised the cork did not break but its not tight. On the nose the spirit reminds me of butter scott candy but a little on the stale side so I’m not a fan of the smell. On the pallet its intense, very old woody with some burns and long after taste that last well over a minute. I won’t call this refine, its quite crude,I won’t recommend it to anyone new to cognac but season drinker who might be able to appreciate it.
