The Delamain Pack Collection Tasting Set comprises 5 x 20cl bottles of wonderful Grande Champagne Cognacs from the house of Delamain. If you've not yet been introduced to Delamain, this is a wonderful way to sample their wares.
The Cognacs contained within the tasting set are as follows:
1. The Delamain Pale & Dry XO Cognac: This gets its name thanks to the fact that it's much paler than other Cognacs of this age and quality. The color is totally natural, and the eaux-de-vie are all matured in old casks. The 'dry' refers to the sweetness, which is very dry and natural.
A delicate, lengthy Cognac that delights with its fruitiness and mellow nature.
2. The Delamain Le Vesper XO Cognac: Round, full of body, mature, with a wonderful length of finish. Enjoy the scents of dry vine shoots and vanilla. Wonderful rancio that you only get with a Cognac of true age.
3. The Delamain l'Extra de Grande Champagne Cognac: A perfect expression of why Grande Champagne is the premier cru of the region.
Full, mellow, mature, complex, and fruity.
4. The Delamain Le Très Vénérable Cognac: So named due to its 'venerable' status - thie maximum age up until which a Cognac can improve.
This is extraordinarily delicate in such a rich and flavorful Cognac. Powerful perfumes and intense and complex on the palate. Delightfully mature.
5. The Delamain La Réserve de la Famille Cognac: Proud to give it the name 'Reserve de la Familie', this is an exceptionally rare Cognac - one that the Delamain family say they reserve for guests and friends.
Rich, complex, refined... This is a truly extra-special Cognac.
