Tasting review

To the eye: We can admire an elegant coppery color with golden glints. On the nose: We first notice gourmet aromas such as banana and caramelized pears. Then a subtle sweetness appears, and notes of vanilla & coconut mixed with spicy and menthol are revealed.

Description

Here comes Martell Blue Swift. VSOP Cognac aged in Bourbon Casks, and that's why it's called Eau de Vie de Vin because it's not a Cognac technically. This liquor was matured in French Oak casks and then finished in Kentucky Bourbon casks. Martell’s signature process of distilling cognacs free of impurities leave it open to absorbing the rich aromatic tones from the bourbon cask. The "Swift", has been a brand icon for Martell, a bird with the rare ability to fly for days without stopping, the Swift is bound by nothing – traversing oceans and continent. 

Disclaimer: Even when it says "Cognac Age" below, of course it should be "Age" from a legal point of view, because it's not a Cognac.

Love it

I started with the V.S. and moved up to the blue swift. I see why it's not called a true congac and even though I usually drink Hine this has become my go to congac. It may be aged in Kentucky barrels but being from N.C. all I can say is it gives it a unique taste I prefer on occasion over hennesay, and the other popular 3.

First time trying this brand. I wont look back

Very good nose pf vanilla and you can actually smell the barrel of Kentucky bourbon it was kept in. Deep caramel smell and very long finish. Put Hennesay and many others to shame. Never judge a congac by the shape or look of the bottle. The V.S. alone beats most V.S.O.P's. Now my go to choice hands down
