Tasting review

Eye: A rich coffee-like color.

Nose: Deep and flavoursome, the nose first presents hints of Caribbean rum. Followed by Demerara sugar, and smokey notes of tobacco leaves and cigar boxes. There are also some spicy aromas including nutmeg, clove and cinnamon, before fragrances of rancio and leather kick in.

Mouth: Rich, always with clear undertones of brown sugar and molasses, alongside figs and prune jam. The mouth then prevails with hints of liquorice and tobacco, before notes of leather and a few drops of Fernet Branca come to life. There is an underlying caramel sweetness that complements notes and flavors of burnt cake while keeping slightly tannic woody aromas in check.

Growth area & soil: Grande Champagne

Daniel Bouju Lot 60 Cognac by Malternative Belgium

Daniel Bouju Lot 60 Cognac by Malternative Belgium presents a unique limited edition Cognac reflective of Daniel Bouju’s unique personal style. While it is a nicely balanced offering, it is also extremely complex and jam-packed full of character. Bottled on 21st February 2022, there are only 246 bottles available, making it a rare jewel of the premier cru.

Created by Malternative in collaboration with Maison Daniel Bouju, this is a bottle brought about by Ysatis and Pieter who founded the Malternative label just before the Corona pandemic in March 2020. It all started following several trips to Cognac between 2015-and 2020, where the pair fell in love with the authenticity, history, hospitality and gastronomy of the Cognac region. As lovers of whisky, they slowly began to make the switch to Cognac - an esteemed "malternative". Working with different brands, Ysatis and Pieter personally visit the Cognac producers to form good relationships in order to make their own selections to be sold under their brand name. The bottles are completed in France, and the labels are personalized with a special mention of the producer. The latest project of malternative saw the couple open up their very first experience store in Hasselt, Belgium which features their own bottlings and the likes of Daniel Bouju Lot 60 Cognac by Malternative Belgium (of course!) as well as other rarities from esteemed Cognac houses including Pineau des Charentes and bottlings distilled between 1903 and 2018. 

The house of Daniel Bouju is a family-run producer based in the heart of the Grande Champagne region, which dates back to 1805. With over 15 hectares of vineyards in the area, the brand is responsible for each and every rigorous step that goes into producing Cognac. The secret of what makes Bouju Cognac stand out is its use of “bousinage” techniques which toasts the casks and caramelises the wood to give it an extra boost of aroma. Then after a period of aging, the eaux-de-vie is moved to older, less active barrels for the rest of the maturation process.

Presentation of the bottle

Showcasing the Cognac's rich coffee-like coloring, the bottle itself complements the eaux-de-vie’s deep sultry aesthetic. While the bottle remains classic, the label design presents a contemporary finishing touch to this one-of-a-kind offering. A color explosion of firey oranges draws the eye closer to the illustration stamped on the front, with the Cognac’s essential information detailed below.

How to enjoy

A well-matured Cognac worthy of your utmost attention when tasting. For the best tasting experience, serve at room temperature, neat or on the rocks as a digestive following an indulgent dinner. The smokey nuances of this Cognac will also pair beautifully with a fine cigar of your choice.
