Re: Good cognac selection

Heard about them. Will definitely give them a try next time. I’ve had success with Cognatheque; however, shipping and handling + duties came out to more than 60% of the cost of the bottle. Is that about the same with Vintage Liquor in your experience?

Re: Maison Surrenne Tonneau no 1

I had wondered about that- I had bought off the second release, Numen I think had the first. The second release was still good, but depending on what was added to replenish the tonneau, I also considered whether each subsequent release became a different blend. The solera method would most definite...

Martell Cordon Bleu ‘Extra’

Martell Cordon Bleu Extra. 40% abc.

Floral on the nose. Sweet candy fruit. Elegant and balanced.

Every bit as supple as the familiar ‘lesser’ Cordon Bleu. With the eaux-de-vie from Borderies, this one is aged a bit longer at around 30 years. The ‘Extra’ should appeal to every cognac lover.

Delord 25 year old

Delord 25 year old: 40% abv. Initial whiff yield some harsh smell; which is an indication that you need to be patient and wait a little longer. 15 minutes later... now it's better. Fruity, and oaky. Taste of longan fruit. For around $60 a bottle, this has got to be the best bargain of any brown spir...

Francois Peyrot Heritage

End of the road for this extraordinary cognac. Gave myself a generous pour for a clean sendoff. Anyone who knows where I can get a bottle of this stateside, please let me know.

Re: Davidoff Cognac

And this one from August... Sun 05 Aug 2018, 03:37 I am drinking 'Davidoff Classic' today. The current production is a VSOP by Hine, if I am not mistaken. This old bottle was made by Hennessey, and for sure it's not a VSOP. With the complexity and mouth feel of this spirit, I am compelled to believe...

A fantastic cognac that I had opened a while back. It's still bursting with scent of wildflowers. Notes of honey. Can smell this cognac from clear across the room. Oaky. 43% Abv. Medium length.

1974 L'Encantada Le Sable Bas Armagnac

1974 L'Encantada Le Sable Bas Armagnac
40.1% ABV
Aged 42 years

Fruit forward. Rich complex flavors fill up the mouth. Dry. Medium finish. Glad it's not too sweet. A good sign that this is a pure, unadulterated creation.

This is all Baco. Single Cask. Pure uncut, unfiltered good stuff.

Prunier Family Reserve

Caramel. Bitter. Dark fruit. Guess not all 'family reserves' are created equal. This one is clearly aiming for the masses.

15-35 years old. 40% ABV

I am setting it aside and come back to it later.
