The master blender states: " Very soft complex nose, slight cloves and pepper ; warm, mid-length palate with slightly peppery final edge. A true reflection of a forty years old Cognac. "
OBOY what a positive surprise this was. Tres Rare is golden light color, it’s an excellent and lovely Cognac which tells us that color of the Cognac has nothing to do with its age or quality because this one is just superb.
This is a 40 years old Cognac, its blended until perfection using pure vintage Cognac and not blending from different years, that’s my understanding.
On the nose its very soft but on the palate it’s an incredible complex Cognac done by a master of the old sort.
The nose and palate/taste brings memory of some light spices like pepper, but also vanilla, toffee/fudge, banana and wood.
The finish is warm and smooth very pleasant and it’s a long-lasting one, almost like I’m going to hold on to it for the whole evening.
I’m going to enjoy this one, highly appreciated master class Cognac, but trust me I’m going to purchase another one and put away in my cellar for the next years to come.
