Rich and luxurious, this 12-year-old “Tres Vielle” Cognac offers deep toffee and hazelnut flavors, before tapering off to a cocoa and espresso-inflected finish. It’s a well-structured brandy that puts you in mind of a leather club chair—you just want to close your eyes and sink into it.
Absolutely superb with Honduras cigars and their characteristic aromas of honey, spices and dried fruit (Santa Rosa region in the north-west and Danley in the south). Served at room temperature, it expresses the famous “rancio” (distinctive aroma of old cognacs, appearing at 15 to 20 years of age), characterised by flavours of walnuts, hazelnuts and dried fruits combined with dried flowers. To be enjoyed with the best cigars.
Aged for over a decade - much longer than required for this age category - the Godet VSOP Original Cognac is intended to show the influence of oak on spirit. Composed of eaux-de-vie from the Fins Bois as well as Grande and Petite Champagne, this expression blends some of the finest regions of Cognac seamlessly, all aged by the west coat of France. Thanks to its extended maturation by the sea, the fruity spirit has been mellowed and complemented by rich tannins and notes of dried fruit.
Crafted from 100% "Folle Blanche", a pre-phylloxera grape variety, Jean Grosperrin "La Folle Blanche" Grande Champagne Cognac greets with lively aromas of fruit, citrus, honey and butter on the nose. The medium bodied palate offers a soft texture with notes of baked apple, vanilla, caramel and cinnamon which lead to a long, balanced finish.
$680.001840 is an addition to the Pierre Ferrand cognac range that has a bit of history. Based on the 3 star cognacs much favoured by the pioneering bartenders of the 19th century this has been designed to work perfectly in classic cocktails. It's also a bit punchier than the others in the range, bottled at 45% for a more concentrated flavour that should sing out in a mixed drink.
