ABK6 Cognac

The ABK6 Extra Cognac delights on all levels.  From the moment you set eyes on its old golden shades (only found in Cognacs that are truly well aged), you'll be captivated.  It continues to thrill with a plethora of aromas.  Luxuriate in the sensory journey of woodiness that gives way to fruit, with a hint of spice to add to the excitement.

This adventure intensifies when you take a sip, as the taste sensation continues its rollercoaster ride that somehow manages to remain light and refreshing, even with such complexity.  And of course, the finish is to die for... Musky, long, and intricate - you have no choice but to surrender to the moment.

With a Cognac of such quality it should come as no surprise to hear of it's well-deserved awards:

- 2012 International Spirits Challenge – Gold, Best in Class

- 2014 IWSC - Silver, Outstanding

- 2015 San Francisco World Spirits Competition – Double Gold

Remarkable Quality

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!
