Review and Tasting

Sampled on 01/05/2017

Appearance

Clear, deep golden amber with coppery glints.

Aroma

Caramel, crème brûlée, candied lemon, vanilla, dried apricot, stewed plum, roasted brazil nut, with violet and Jasmin blossom, nutmeg and cinnamon spice.

Taste

Lightly sweet caramel and vanilla fudge is quickly dried by zesty lemon, cinnamon and nutmeg spiced oak, with chocolate cake, nutty fruit cake and dried apricot.

Aftertaste

Biscuit green grape, brazil nut, dried fruit, caramel and zesty lemon with nutmeg and cinnamon spice. Surprisingly dry finish following the sweet entry to the palate.

Overall

The elegant, clean and restrained bottle and label stand apart from the gold bling we have become so accustomed to from Cognac. The cognac inside the bottle is more complex when compared to other ‘big house’ 3-star V.S. cognacs with its caramel vanilla richness amplifying green grapey and dried apricot fruitiness dried by citrus, nutmeg and cinnamon spiced oak.
