AE DOR Cognac

The A.E. Dor Extra Grande Champagne Cognac is, we have to say, rather sublime.  Aged in small barrels in a humid cellar, this 'extra' quality premier cru Cognac delights from the moment you set eyes on it.  It comes in a beautiful decanter and presentation box, and as that lovely deep hue that only comes from a truly well-aged Cognac.  The sensory journey continues, with aromas of violets, vanilla, and cocoa.  And for anyone who questions what the smell and taste of 'rancio' is, then this really is a superb example.  

If the Cognacs of A.E. Dor are a new one to you, then this one certainly showcases what an extraordinary house this is.  With a stock of eaux-de-vie that pre-dates the phylloxera crisis of the late 1800s, this is a house with not only a wealth of history, but an incredible cellar that they use to create outstanding Cognacs.  We guarantee that once you try a Cognac from the house of A.E. Dor, you'll be back for more.

Here's another great Extra

I blind tasted this cognac by AEDor. First of all: great decanter and wooden box. Now, the taste. The nose is spetacular, very grande champagne.. very rich. It's a great example for rancio when it comes to the palate. that finish is beautifully round and richt.. if you love mature Cognac - this is a classic.
