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.

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.
Martell is the oldest of the big cognac houses. Similar to Rémy Martin, but a few years older still, Martell will soon celebrate its 300 year anniversary. The history of Martell & Co dates back to 1715, when Jean Martell founded the company with the wish to produce only the highest quality in cognac. With the legendary bottles Martell Cordon Bleu, Martell Extra L’Or de Jean Martell and the recent Création Grand Extra from 2007, the company strongly implanted itself in the luxury goods market. It belongs to Pernod Ricard and has sales of around 15 million liters every year. The most precious eaux-de-vie, some of which date back to 1830, are stored in a secret location in the cellars of Jean Martell - approximately 1,6 million 9 liter cases!
