Tasting review:

Eye: Deep, old gold hue

Nose: A treat for the ofalctory system, boasting rare aromas only found in the oldest of Cognacs

Palate: Refreshingly sweet, with tangs of juicy apricot and soft fruit flesh. Rancio, of course, and a sublime, almost never-ending finish.

Description

The AE Dor Vieille Réserve No 9 is truly a special Cognac. A very limited release, offered as part of their precious numbered, Vieilles Reserve range of rare Cognacs. The story behind No 9 is fascinating. After languishing in oak barrels for around 50 years, the eau-de-vie was transferred into wax-sealed demijohns. When this particular concept is applied, the Cognac then ceases to age further, nor does the alcohol content continue to naturally reduce. It was in 1964 when the Cellar Master concluded that the Cognac was at the perfect point for this to occur. And there it sat until the house of A.E. Dor deemed it ready to bottle.

Thanks to this such a Cognac retains its vigor and personality, so you can be assured that you're enjoying a Cognac that's as perfect as it was over half a century ago. This really is like tasting a little bit of history. This Grande Champagne delight needs no fancy decanter: The traditional style Cognac bottle, such as used with all of A.E. Dor's Cognacs, is ther perfect vehicle for such a sublime sensory experience. But connoiseurs beware! This is a truly limited edition, and once the small run of bottles are gone, then that's it–they truly are gone forever.

About A.E. DOR Cognac

The vintage eaux-de-vie of A.E. Dor are one the few that are left from before phylloxera struck the region in 1874. Adapting to current developments in the cognac industry and the luxury market in general, the company, today headed by Jacques Riviere, have launched a new range of products that target a wider and more international group of consumers.
