Like this Cognac!
I’m not a connoisseur, however I like it very much. I rate this Cognac five stars all round! Great service and delivery.
It was Free for me!
My General Manager received it as a gift from one of our drivers, he gave it to me months later as it was just sitting in his office. I googled it and said, are you sure you want to give this to me? He said yes why, well it is expensive. He said, well you can have it. CHILD!!!! I am a gin drinker, but this was the BEST Cognac I have ever had!
I had the pleasure of tasting this rare bottle project while travelling. Prunier are a well respected house and this is a testament to their reputation. Truly a piece of art Cognac not a mass produced gimmick. It seems that the idea behind this is just to make great cognac, not to make an age statement.
It's highly alcoholic so the nose is a little strong at first but it opens up very quickly and you must be careful not to forget this is 50%+. It's the type of Cognac that you would inhale through your nose if you could as the nutty and floral aromas are amazing. Its surprisingly delicate given it the alcohol content but unsurprising given the age and blend history.
On the palate, once again the complexity keeps the mouth adventuring the whole time while being coherent and structured at the same time. Its not overpowering in anyway and has lots of differing clean but delicate notes. It opens up more and more so don't hesitate to let the glass sit. The best glasses I had were after it had sat for little bit. Definitely a drink to sit and ponder with. It becomes less nutty and more complex as it sits.
Make no mistake this is a serious Cognac for a serious drinker. Even at it's price point, it is very, very good and worth a try for that special occasion.
Prunier XXO Family Series No1
I tried this a couple of weeks ago after I purchased a bottle.
Although this has been the most expensive Cognac I have purchased to date. I was a little hesitant when I saw it was cask strength 50.9% ABV,
Once it has time in the glass to open up it blossoms into the most amazing nose and palate that seems to be endless.
What an absolute achievement to the blender of this very rare and unique XXO.
Logis de Montifaud Napoleon
Lovely, aromatic nose. Floral, violets and a hint of rose. Taste is layered, complex and exceedingly smooth. No bite but plenty of body. Full on the palate. No harshness just a touch of caramel sweetness. Color is a very appealing element of this cognac. Pale gold but a 'sparkle' that hints at the depth and liveliness of flavor to come. An excellent value.
Love this Cognac
Don’t dilute this one, sip it lovingly.

Nectar of the Gods
The Smoothest Cognac Drink by far, I've seen many fall in with Lasserre Honey Cognac in a recent wedding I attended. AMAZING!
One of a kind experience. I strongly recommend your product.
Great Cognac for a VSOP! Great value for the price.
This is a very pleasant surprise--a VSOP with an excellent, long finish. This Cognac isn't terribly complex, but has a lovely nose in which I detect a nuttiness and trace of dried fruits. On the palate, it hits me nicely with traces of either almonds or hazelnuts, with a vanilla and caramel undertone. The finish is very long--around 5 minutes, and is principally the suggestion of vanilla, caramel, hazelnut and some oakiness. Finish is the strong point of this Cognac.
