Although the name might suggest it, this is not a 'cognac from Cuba'. But what Martell Extra Cohiba Cognac is, is one that's been created specifcically to accompany a great cigar (and we all know that Cuba are world-beaters when it comes to cigars).
Strong, bold, weighty, extremely rich, with a complexity of tastes that has to be experienced to fully understand. Super high quality, it's created from a blend of Grande Champagne eaux-de-vie, each aged for between 40-55 years. Naturally, with such a high quality cognac, the rancio is superb.
A truly top class cognac from the masters at Martell.

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.
Martell is the oldest of the big cognac houses. Similar to Rémy Martin, but a few years older still, Martell will soon celebrate its 300 year anniversary. The history of Martell & Co dates back to 1715, when Jean Martell founded the company with the wish to produce only the highest quality in cognac. With the legendary bottles Martell Cordon Bleu, Martell Extra L’Or de Jean Martell and the recent Création Grand Extra from 2007, the company strongly implanted itself in the luxury goods market. It belongs to Pernod Ricard and has sales of around 15 million liters every year. The most precious eaux-de-vie, some of which date back to 1830, are stored in a secret location in the cellars of Jean Martell - approximately 1,6 million 9 liter cases!
