Martell VSOP

Postby Martell » Tue Jun 28, 2011 6:47 pm

This cognac is subtle and soft. The nose is wonderfully fruity! Delicious!

The bottle bears a gold medallion engraved with the family logo of Louis XIV, the last year of his reign (1715) is also the year when Martell was founded.

This Martell VSOP is the result of mixing eaux de vie from the four major (Grande and Petite Champagne, Borderies and Fins Bois) areas of the Charente.

I know this is off topic but what is the point of a 30 ml bottle?

Yeah indeed, I got some of them. They are way to small to be able to enjoy it...

I guess it is just so people can sample before spending money on a full bottle. I would do that (although generally on more expensive Cognacs that I cannot afford the full bottle).

30mL can definitely be a great size for 2 pours. I just got a bunch of great samples from a place in Belgium. Great whiskies!

hi Numen, would you have a link for this place in Belgium at all? Do they do on-line purchasing or are you based in Belgium yourself?

I am on a miniature mission :D and want to sample and try many different spirits this way to determine what I'll buy in full size.

Hi, sure, though this place is just whiskies and no brandy at all-

http://whiskysamples.flyingcart.com/

They're great because, most of the time you buy a sample, it costs as much as buying a serving at a bar, where you pay 1/6th the value of the bottle for 1/24th the quantity. This place seems to be selling nearly at cost. Sadly, I have not yet found a great place for Cognac or Armagnac miniatures. Master of Malt had a few old Domaine Boingneres Armagnacs, which were superb, but it's generally a matter of finding a few VSOPs or XOs of the larger houses.

For Cognac, it's expensive, but there's a coffret collection of Daniel Bouju here: http://www.finestwine.com/en/daniel-bou ... -50-1.html

It's like 12 minatures, and includes some of the really young expressions, but also the Family Reserve and other older and unfiltered bottlings.

I haven't found a good place otherwise for brandy minis
