A mellow, but powerful cognac in the nose, dried fruits and orange honey - elegant and round in the mouth.
I tried this Cognac a night ago and decided to wait to write an evaluation. The nose I definitely the strongest suite of this offering from Courvoisier, and reminds me of a fine summer day with aromas of blossoms and to my senses, ripe dark plums. The palate was round and flavorful, but somewhat indistinct as to the flavors noted. Slightly sweet, and somewhat spicy. The finish was pleasant and not at all harsh, with the cinnamon and nutmeg coming through with a slight oaky tone. I rated it lower than usual on basis of the cost for value received. I have enjoyed both Daniel Boujou VSOP and Remy Martin XO more by way of comparison, but that's in line with my personal tastes and not a knock on this particular offering. Overall a Cognac that I would be proud to serve to a guest in my home. More a matter of personal taste at this level of Cognac.
