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
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.
