Remy Martin VSOP Mature Cask Finish

Postby wouter » Thu Dec 22, 2011 11:49 am

Unbelievable the well-known Remy Martin VSOP will be replaced by a new VSOP called Mature Cask Finish!

What do you guys think about this change? Hope it will be the same or better quality then the good old VSOP....

I read here where it says "the VSOP will definitely discontinue in Europe, but will continue to be sold throughout the rest of the world despite its removal from the European market."

I gave it a shot tonight, and compared it to the VSOP and XO. By and large, I thought that it was a very slight improvement on the VSOP in some ways, but it had faults in other ways.

Nose: Virtually the same as the VSOP [tropical].

Palate: Similar to the VSOP, but a bit "more" and richer than the VSOP. There's actual tropical fruit here now, but there's also a steady dose of sugar water. The sweetness, though, borders are artificial sweetener and reminds me of sugar-free Snapple.

Finish: A little drier and woodier than the VSOP, though about the same. In general, the robust fruit on the palate just exacerbated the artificial quality and sweetener. The nose was pleasant, but this is an adulterated spirit, and, it's designed to please a bit and remain fairly innocuous, especially in a mixer. As far as an independent sipper, though, I'll be glad to pass on it. C- (72ish)
