Armagnac choice in PDX area

I live in the Portland, Oregon metro area, and would like to buy a bottle of Armagnac. Choice is pretty limited, but I wonder if someone with some Armagnac knowledge/experience might be able to help me narrow down my options. Here's my list of choices:

Sempe' VSOP
Sempe' 15 year old
Demontal VSOP
Les Domaines Grassa
Lasrressingle VSOP

The 15 yo Semp' is getting a wee bit out of my comfortable price range, but I saw a reference to it online where it was referred to as "beloved." The Grassa was another mentioned in glowing terms.

Many thanks!

  1. Grassa is a very good maker but I have not had the one you list.What I have had though was very nice... Laressingle is pretty good but what I would call "standard."
    Haven't had the Sempe or Demontal...
