I am an opinionated old man. After half a century of cognac I still have a pedestrian palate.

French wine, and the concept of terroir, captured my interest early on. Naturally, curiosity took me to spirits, in particular Cognac. Today I'm proud to be a member of the Cognac Expert team managing B2B projects, working on Cognac Expert Originals, and writing bottle reviews for the English Blog. I love to taste anything and everything - rum/rhum, whisky(ey), Armagnac, etc. - but no other spirit grabs my attention quite like Cognac, and all of its subtleties and nuance. Santé !

It has depth, structure, smooth, warm with a long finish. The nose does not overpower and gives a mix of...
A fine example
A beautiful amber in the glass, an absolutely honest jewel like color. The nose is floral, the way nectar must smell to bees, perfume before being distilled into an essence. Sweet, but floral-sweet, not fruit, very pleasant with just a hint of the 42% abs. The mild finish is not particularly lengthy. An...
Fit for royalty
Color: honey On the nose: Very lively. The ethanol bite here is stronger but I don't mind it. I’m reminded of the bite that I get from purely Jamaica aged Hampden rum. I also get gingerbread but the ginger aromas are stronger. There’s also an assortment of dried fruits that remind me of Christmas...
Tasty trip to the Park
Color: 1st steep Pu-er tea (Because of the age, I let this breathe in the glass for 30 minutes before taking notes.) On the nose: Immediately light and long aromas of gingerbread and Christmas cake. There’s a little pepperiness and ethanol sensation as well. After are even lighter aromas of...
