Tasting review

Eye: A wonderfully deep amber.

Nose: Soft, mellow yet complex. Delicate notes of berries, dried fruit, toasted almonds, hazelnuts and roasted coffee beans. The second nose delivers a hit of subtle floral aromas with a hint of licorice.

Palate: Rounded and smooth with a predominantly sweet palate, a hint of licorice with a slightly nutty finish.

Description

Carefully crafted kinship: Martell Extra Cohiba and a Cuban cigar

Despite the name, this is certainly not a “cognac from cuba”. The Martell Extra Cohiba Cognac is, in fact, a Cognac that has been developed by Cellar Master Christophe Valtaud, to be paired perfectly with a great cigar. And where else could we find the finest cigar? Cuba of course.

This utterly brilliant blend of eaux-de-vie is cultivated exclusively from the Grande Champagne region, arguably the best cru, meaning a Cognac of this quality should only be enjoyed with the most exquisite cuban as a delectable digestif. The subtle floral aromas released on the second nose of the Extra Cohiba complement the tobacco flavors particularly well. This is truly a top class Cognac from the masters at Martell.

A bold and weighty Cognac with an extremely rich flavor profile, the complexity of aromas must be experienced first hand to be full understood. A superb blend that has matured for between 40 to 55 years, meaning the rancio really is something special. Punctuating the perfumed punches of dried flowers, the nose reveals aromas of berries, dried fruits, toasted almonds and hazelnuts.

Hints of roasted coffee beans and licorice mean create a marvellous marriage when met with the lingering smoke of a Cuban Cohiba cigar. On the palate, the Martell Extra Cohiba has a predominantly sweet attack, with a slightly nutty finish.

How to Enjoy

No surprises here, enjoy with a classic Cuban cigar (perhaps a Cohiba?), as a delightful digestif, or as a remedy for those post-summer blues, taking you on a Cuban quest for flavor, without the hefty price of a plane ticket!

Presentation of the bottle

This decanter stands out on any shelf with its stunning square shape, a shining example of simply superb savoir-faire. Taking you to the heart of Cuba itself with a typically tropical image of Cuban farmland, this dazzling decanter will surely be the talking point of any dinner party.

The warm amber tones revealed through the glass bottle blended with deep yellow of the Cohiba label reproduce the staggering sunsets you'd find only in the Caribbean.
