Remy Martin 1738

Remy Martin 1738 Accord Royal, unfortunately it is not 273 years old, but I think it is a great Cognac for the money ($50).

What do you think about it?

After seeing this I looked at the whisky exchange website (where I tend to buy my stuff in the UK) and it lists this as discontinued, can you advice if this is indeed discontinued (even if just in the UK)

The 1738 Accord Royal is only being sold in the USA and in the Remy Martin shop in France. So it is not discontinued... Also if I am correct it was never been sold in GB.

Thanks for the reply wouter. It is most annoying when this type of stuff happens :)

I was at the liquor store yesterday and purchased a bottle of Hine Antique and Remy Martin 1738; I only bought the 200ml bottle which was US$20. I remember seeing the review on this board and that the 1738 is supposed to be above the VSOP; at least from a price standpoint.

The nose is bright and fruity with hints of it's youth. Apricot jam, apples, melon, and lemon are in front, caramel, and a bit of chocolate bring up the rear.

The taste starts out sweet like sugary apples and toffee, then it gets lemony, then it tapers off with a bitter clove spiciness. The finish gets a bit too bitter and reminds you it's definitely not an XO. All in all, this is a much better product than the VSOP. If you are thinking about springing out the cash for the VSOP, my recommendation would be to shell out the extra cash for the 1738.
