Cognac Gift & Tasting Sets
Once you discover the joy that is Cognac, it’s natural to want to learn more about the tasting process. And one of the best products to purchase if you want to do this is a Cognac tasting gift set.
Even if you’re a connoisseur, a tasting set is an excellent way to further expand your knowledge, and perhaps discover a new Cognac brand. A Cognac miniatures gift set is also a wonderful gesture for a loved one or a Cognac aficionado.
If you are new to the world of Cognac tasting, then we know it can be a little overwhelming. We’re won’t go into the whole nitty-gritty of taste testing here, but we can give you a quick rundown of what the process consists of:
The Eye – or in other words, the look of the Cognac. In general, the older a Cognac is, the darker it is in color.
The Nose – the smell and aromas of the Cognac. This is something to take your time over, because they can evolve as you enjoy them. So take a minute or two to savor this experience.
The Palate – in other words, the taste. Again, this can change the longer you hold the Cognac in your mouth.
The Finish – this is how long the taste remains after you’ve swallowed the drink. Older Cognacs have a much longer finish than those still in their youth.
However, the best way to get to grips with the process is just to dive right it. So don’t be shy, have a browse through the diverse selection of Cognac sampler gift sets we have on offer, and you’re sure to find one for every kind of Cognac lover.
