Leyrat Extra Glory Cognac, is the creation from a single estate. But not only that, from a group of barrels that were forgotten due to being stored at the vey back of Leyrat's Chai Paradis (Paradise Cellar). There was no trace of the year of distillation, but they are aged for a minimum of 40 years. Thus the alcohol content has been naturally reduced by time, leaving them at the ideal cask strencth of 45%.
Remarkably vivacious and fresh, it is, of course, an old golden color. This is truly a cognac to bring out on special occasions, or to share with someone very special.

Tasting notes: The nose has remarkable floral freshness with leafy undertones. This first impression yields to fine spice, notably cinnamon and pronounced aromas of stewed fruitand quince. The palate is exceptional for its smoothness, packed with peach and apricot flavours andwith a hint of resin and honey in an elegant and powerful finish.
Cognac Leyrat is part of the 250 hectare estate owned by Francis and Elodie Abecassis. They also own the brands Cognac Le Reviseur and Cognac ABK6. As with the rest of the company’s range, Cognac Leyrat is produced from the fruits of a single estate. These eaux-de-vie are then aged and blended into a full range of cognacs, from a VS right through to their flagship product Leyrat Glory, which is a minimum of 40 years of age.
