Tips for tasting Cognac

  • Use a tulip glass. Thanks to its wide bowl and narrow neck, the tulip glass concentrates Cognac’s nose and allows you to best appreciate the spirit’s subtlety and layers of aromatic complexity. The glass is also easy to hold and is great for admiring color.
  • Don’t warm a Cognac or any fine wine or spirit too much or you will accentuate the alcohol, not the aromas.
  • Swirl Cognac gently. Cognac is packed with aromas and needs less oxygen than wine for the aromas to reach your senses.
  • Put your nose close to the glass but not in it. (For the same reasons as above.)
  • Take a sip. Keep the spirit in your mouth for 2 or 3 seconds before you swallow.
  • Wait 45 seconds. You’ll experience the fullest range of flavors and aromas from about 45 to 90 seconds after sipping.

Three and a half years in the making, blended using women's palates. An ultra-luxury cognac, with no aggressive notes of wood or tobacco present. Exotic notes of buttered caramel, cocoa, rich brown spices, and a touch of pink peppercorn flavors, rounded out by an amazingly smooth and silky finish.

Lustrous amber color. Rich honeyed raisin, chocolate covered nut and fig aromas with a rich fruity full body and a long, vibrant and spicy, leather, mocha and cigar box accented finish. A fantastic VSOP that will shine in cocktails or snifters especially on the rocks.
