Hidden Delights: Leyrat Glory Extra Cognac
The Leyrat Glory Cognac is a single estate treasure, sourced from the characterful Fins Bois terroir. Thanks to a happy oversight that saw a parcel of casks being 'forgotten', this eaux-de-vie was left alone to mature and transform. Due to the barrels being stored at the very back of Layrat Cognac's Paradise Cellar, this particular cask remained hidden from view, only rediscovered after many decades had passed. In fact, there was no trace of the year the eaux-de-vie within was distilled, but it is estimated to have been in the cellar for a minimum of four decades. Bottled at a natural cask strength of 45% ABV, it tastes just like it would straight out of the barrel.
Remarkably vivacious and fresh, this is a well-aged Fins Bois Cognac to bring out on the most special of occasions or presented as the perfect gift for any Cognac connoisseur.
Cognac Leyrat is based on the Domaine de Chez Maillard estate in the Fins Bois region of Cognac. Cognacs created here are renowned for their complexity and elegance; the family who first established the House were adamant on the production of natural and clean eaux-de-vie without any added sugars. All of the grapes grown for Leyrat Cognacs are handpicked from vineyards on the estate and cultivated using organic fertilizers without chemicals. Internationally awarded for quality and taste, Leyrat Cognac can be found on the most prestigious tables in the world.

How to Serve

Truly special cognac
Immediately upon pouring the aromas jump out of the glass. It presents notes of brine, tobacco, cedar, cherries, oranges, pears, cinnamon, and cream, with a palate that starts a little spicy and has intense fruit flavors of peaches, lychees, with vanilla and cedar. The finish is long, warm, and very...
Another Fins Bois treasure
Clear gold in the glass with an intense flower garden scent; considering the age (70 years?) a fresh aroma. Warm and inviting, complex, but not mysterious, fruits in the front of the mouth, spices, cinnamon in the back. A long and delicious finish.
A beautiful fins bois
This is one of the top product from Leyrat. This is a pure Fins Bois aged as much as 70 years. It comes in a very beautiful decanter and box, even us not interesting in the bottles itself get impressed by this shape and presence. This cognac looks beautiful in the glass.
