Launched in 2004 and noted for being one of the most expensive cognacs available, Arcana is bottled in a French hand-blown crystal carafe presented in a mahogany case. Only 300 numbered carafes were made. The cognacs in this blend are said to average 98 years old.

Clear, dark, old mahogany amber with burnished copper highlights.
Heavenly nose beckons with delicately spiced Christmas cake fruit, cinnamon, tobacco, saddle room, cedar wood, hazelnut and wooden fruit box aromas.
Tightly interrogated, luxurious, complex palate with ever-so-delicate olive- and linseed oil-rubbed dry spicy oak. Dried, nutty Christmas cake fruit beautifully balances the majestically spiced oak.
Rounded, delicately spiced long lasting, graceful finish. The good things in life come at a cost.
Closure: Natural cork stopper
