In the heart of Grande Champagne in the village of Jarnac lies the impressive Chateau de Triac. The chateau is the home of Cognac Tiffon, to which the cognac brand Braastad belongs. Rubbing shoulders with other famous cognac houses such as Bisquit or Courvoisier, the brand Braastad was created when a Norwegian named Sverre Braastad married into the Tiffon family. Known for their devotion to the traditional cognac producing methods, today the whole process is still carried out at the family premises, and Cognac Braastad’s products are renowned worldwide.

Tasting review by Le Reviseur:
Color: Old gold
Nose: Beautiful floral freshness with a hint of vegetables, evolving into spicy delicacy with cinnamon, rancio, & fruity notes in a syrup of quince.
Palate: Amazingly flexible with peach & apricot notes. The finish is powerful, elegant,...
Martell Cohibas nose is rather soft, mellow but complex. Some sweet notes, like vanilla, hazlenut and slight honey. In the mouth: Quite down the line, a good strength, but round and fresh - some wood aromas. The finish is well balanced.
