ABK6 Extra Cognac
The ABK6 Extra Cognac delights on all levels. Captivating at first sight with old golden shades only found in Cognacs that are truly well-aged. Continuing its thrill, it opens into a plethora of rich aromas. The sensory journey morphs into woodiness that gives way to fruit, with a hint of spice to add an element of excitement. The adventure intensifies during the first sip as the taste sensation offers a ride that is light and refreshing with enticing depth. To finish, its musky, long and intricate palate encourages complete surrender to the moment.
Produced by a relatively new Cognac house that is renowned for introducing a modern spirit to traditional practices, it boasts sustainability and quality within each creation. Despite being one of the largest independent producers in Cognac, its attention to detail offers precise blending that is widely recognized for its expertise. Crafting Cognac’s with aromatic intensity and indulgence, the ABK6 Extra is a selection of sophistication.
With a Cognac of such quality it should come as no surprise to hear of its well-deserved awards:
- 2012 International Spirits Challenge – Gold, Best in Class
- 2014 IWSC - Silver, Outstanding
- 2015 San Francisco World Spirits Competition – Double Gold
Presentation of the bottle:
Housed in a short decanter with a sophisticated silver top, the ABK6 showcases elegance from first glance. Simple and understated, the minimal type displays the brilliance of the Cognac effortlessly. Its class and character are revealed remarkably with a bold black box to finish. A beautiful gift that a connoisseur will appreciate.
How to enjoy
An Extra Cognac like this deserves respect with every single sip. Serve in a snifter neat and leave for a few minutes, allowing the aromas to develop before savoring the sweet oak notes.
This Cognac by ABK6 is my favorite of the Abecasis family. I didn't find the bottle here in Italy, so I ordered it online via this online shop. What a great blend! Totally love the packaging and the decanter.. the nose is simply incredible. It's very complex, dark fruits.. and the taste is very long and intense. The spices are not "too much", but nicely balanced with the wood tones. A very mature, full Cognac. Bravo!
About ABK6 Cognac
Owned by Francis Abécassis (a homonym of ABK6 when pronounced in French), ABK6 Cognac is a relatively young brand based in the Domaine de Chez Maillard near the village of Claix. The brand is known for its choice to produce single estate Cognacs, with its eaux-de-vie being carefully selected from their 220 hectares of land, specifically for their aromatic intensity and indulgence. The label has shaken up the industry by introducing a young and modern spirit to a traditional drink, without compromising on quality. The company is now one of the largest independent producers in Cognac, and also owns the brands Leyrat, Reviseur and Grands Domaines. Attention to detail is applied to every single aspect of production at ABK6, with sustainable growing methods, Charentaise distillation and precise blending. It’s no wonder the group has taken home over 60 awards in recent years.
