Review and Tasting


Sampled on 05/07/2017

Appearance:

Clear, deep bronze amber.

Aroma:

Caramel and spiced oak - cinnamon, nutmeg and black pepper. Faint buttery nuts and lavender.

Taste:

Rich caramel balanced by oaky dryness, cinnamon, nutmeg and black pepper spice, with faint prune fruit, nuts and hints of vanilla.

Aftertaste:

Caramel and prune with lingering cinnamon, black pepper spice and lavender/violet blossom.

Overall:

We'd encourage you to pay a little more for the VSOP, but this VS - the world's bestselling Cognac - is robust in style with caramel and spiced oak. It's suited to cocktails and mixed drinks.
