Tasting review

Show more Show less

Nose: Lush and complex aromas greet you with an explosion of tropical fruit. Ripe mango, juicy pineapple, and a hint of passion fruit dance together with delicate hints of peach and apricot. Not only fruit, but certainly also chewing tobacco, pickled ginger, and Chinese black tea.

Palate: Wow! This interweaving between nose and taste is sublime! At the first sip, a beautifully balanced palette of flavors unfolds. The tropical fruitiness of the nose immediately emerges with intensely ripe pineapple and mango, accompanied by hints of papaya and guava. As the taste develops further, notes of pink pepper, ginger, and cloves emerge, all so harmonious.

Finish: The aftertaste is long and luxurious, this is enjoyment!

Description

Malternative Belgium Cognac No. 31

The Malternative Belgium Cognac No. 31 "Le Déménageur" (Lot 66) is a remarkable Cognac with an ABV of 46.4%. This limited edition, cask strength Cognac originates from a bouilleur de cru in Verrières, France, within the esteemed Grande Champagne cru. Only 234 bottles were produced, making this a rare and exquisite find.

In the Cognac region, the bouilleur de cru plays a crucial role in preserving the tradition and diversity of Cognac production. They contribute to the region's reputation by offering unique, artisan-made products that reflect the specific characteristics of their vineyards. The municipality of Verrières, with its small population of about 400 inhabitants, is part of the "golden triangle" of the Cognac region, renowned for producing exceptional Cognacs.

While Malterntive cannot disclose the name of the producer, they assure you that the Cognacs from this cellar and the small Charentaise farm are a reflection of the past overtaken by the high speed of the present. The dedication and passion of the producer are evident in every sip of this exceptional Cognac.

Presentation of the decanter

The Malternative Belgium Cognac No. 31 "Le Déménageur" is elegantly presented in a tall, slender bottle that highlights the rich amber color of the Cognac within. The label features a whimsical illustration of a vintage car overloaded with barrels and luggage, symbolizing the concept of moving, which ties in with the name "Le Déménageur" (The Mover).

Label Explanation: Malternative has big news! Their passion for Cognac has made them realize that they need an even more suitable location to keep up with their growth. That is why Malternative is moving to a place that better suits their professional activities and where they can do even more for and with the best Cognacs. Yes, they have found a location where the walls are as strong as those of the best cellars in France and the floors as smooth as a well-aged 1966.

The design is both playful and sophisticated, capturing the spirit of adventure and tradition. The bottle is topped with a black cap, adding a touch of modernity to its classic appearance. With details such as the lot number, alcohol content, and limited edition information clearly displayed, this bottle is as informative as it is visually appealing.

How to drink

Enjoy the Malternative Belgium Cognac No. 31 neat to fully appreciate its complex aromas and flavors. Savor each sip slowly to experience the depth and richness of this luxurious Cognac. Raise your glass high and celebrate the new chapter of Malternative Belgium!
