Tasting review

Eye: Clear amber with flashes of copper.

Nose: Warm vanilla, leather, boiled sweets, walnut and cigar box aromas slowly give way to ripe fruits: melon, apple and apricot.

Palate: Buttery mouthfeel, with flavors of oak, tangerine and peach. The finish is spicy, showing hints of black pepper and nutmeg.

Description

Tradition and Time: a Family Reserve from Tiffon

Grown, distilled and aged on the Tiffon family estate, this exquisite Cognac comes from the vineyards around the Château de Triac and has been aged for around 50 to 60 years. Only grapes from the Fins Bois growing region are used for the Château de Triac Reserve de la Famille Cognac, and the eaux-de-vie have been aged in casks made of fine-grained oak from the Forest of Tronçais in central France.

The magnificent Château de Triac, located just 3 miles east of the town of Jarnac, has been home to the Tiffon family since 1875. The estate encompasses 40 hectares of Grande Champagne and Fins Bois vines, all overseen by Cellar Master Richard Braastad. The Braastad name first entered the business of making Cognac when a Norwegian named Sverre Braastad married into the Tiffon family; ever since, this Nordic connection has won Braastad’s Cognacs a solid fanbase in Norway - and beyond. Known for their devotion to traditional Cognac-producing methods, the family still carry out whole process on their modestly-sized estate, same as they did in the 19th Century. 

Presentation of the Bottle

The Château de Triac Reserve de la Famille Cognac features a classic, tall bottle with a squared-off neck, a deep punt and a wooden cork. An elegant presentation box, featuring an illustration of the family home, completes the package. 

How to Enjoy Chateau de Triac Reserve de la Famille Cognac

The leather and walnut aromas of this fine aged Cognac are perfectly complemented by a cigar. For non-smokers, simply savor this on its own in a tulip glass, or pair with a lavish platter of cheese and fruits after dinner. Best enjoyed at room temperature.

R.I.B.

This is a perfect Cognac because its not to sweet but have some sweet fruits and plums together with good oakiness. This Cognac is very smooth and there is also some spices coming in the taste. The finish is very balanced, medium to long with the sweet fruits and some oak and before you know it the glass is empty. It's great to find a very good Cognac after searching for many years and when you are 60 it's perfect that the Cognac is more than 50 years and to that price. When you purchase this Cognac you should always consider to buy two at the same time because the first bottle will be gone.............


About Tiffon Cognac

With strong ties to the Scandinavian country of Norway, the history of Cognac Tiffon dates back to 1875. Tiffon is to this day a family run business, and is based at the beautiful family home, the Chateau de Triac, just 5 kms from the town of Jarnac. The Chateau itself has a battle-scarred and convoluted history, dating back to the 11th century, which includes being razed to the ground by fires and completely demolished during the Hundred Years’ War. Today, the family grows 40 hectares of Grande Champagne and Fins Bois vines, overseen by cellar master Richard Braastad, who comes from an old cognac producers’ family.
