Rare ... or? just Fine..

79 /100

Absolutely not at all when it comes to design ...
A nice and elegant box. The bottle is the same, simple elegance, carafe similar with a nice wooden cork with a carved brand symbol.
My first meeting with Hine. I thought I would celebrate by buying this fixed with 2 glasses included .... But unfortunately not, CE unfortunately sent me the variant without glasses by mistake ... however, the whole world did not go under, for that. ;) (they have a very nice support service).
But now to the cognac itself;
The color is medium light and clear copper tone, nice to look at.
Trying to drink (at least now to my rating) it from a balloon cup.
The nose gives a feeling of fruity spiciness.
In the mouth think the feeling is the same, at one of the sips, I felt, some berries, strawberry? At others, a different taste in the fruit direction .. orange?
The aftertaste, the feeling is pleasantly long. Unfortunately, the duration of the bottle is not long at all ...
Recommend it. And myself, I will definitely try to meet Hine`s upper range after this one.

Overpriced Low Average Bargain Steal



What aromas do you get when you sniff the Cognac? Do you get hints of fruits or flowers - perhaps it's sweet? Is it intense or rather flat - and most importantly, is the nose coherent to taste and finish? The nose is the most important part when tasting Cognac.



A small sip: Allow your taste buds in the various areas of your mouth to distinguish the different flavours. This part of cognac tasting is described as ‘the palate’. Don’t just swallow it down; allow the liquid to touch all the regions of the mouth. Doing this is necessary as the taste buds pick up contrasting flavours in the different areas of the mouth; on the tip of your tongue to the sides, for example. Take a tiny sip to prep your palate for the sensory experience to come. Take a second larger sip, and gently roll the cognac around, etting it come into contact with every corner of your mouth. Focus on the perceived textural sensations. Are the sensations round and rich or fresh and elegant? Is the overall mouthfeel intense, balanced, disjointed, or lacking presence? In short, how does the cognac feel in your mouth?



Quite simply, what do you taste as you gently roll the cognac around in your mouth? Pay close attention to any flavors of fruits, flowers, oak, and spices - or a complex combination of those elements. Are the flavors cohesive with the Nose and the Mouth, giving a sense of balance and complexity?



The ‘finish’ is the experience you get after you’ve swallowed the cognac. What flavours can you detect? Is it a flat or rough finish and rather sharp, or is it a slight 'punch' you like? How long does the finish last? Also think about overall balance: How does the finish compare to nose and taste?


Overall Impression

Consider the Nose, Mouth, Taste, and Finish simultaneously - the cognac as a whole. Is there cohesion between the four categories, or does the cognac shine in some areas and appear dull in others? Quite simply, is the memory from the tasting experience one that will last your lifetime; is the memory good but nothing extraordinary; or is the cognac’s impact entirely forgettable?
