Oog: Prachtige oude gouden mantel.

Neus: Zacht maar heerlijk complex op de neus.

Mond: Opmerkelijk evenwichtig en zacht, evoluerend tijdens de smaaksensatie. Rijpe aroma's van gedroogd fruit, vanille, eik en rancio. De afdronk is lang, en uiteindelijk bevredigend. Iedereen die geniet van een volle body zal van deze Cognac houden.

Quality cognac

I finally tasted this cognac and was thoroughly impressed. On the nose, it’s great, candied fruits and slight aroma of vanilla. It has a well balanced taste and a super smooth finish. I love the bottle, struggled with the wax a bit, but I appreciate the craftsmanship behind it and that each one is unique. VERY GOOD COGNAC. 114/150. I need another bottle.

Enjoyable Tipple

Received my greatly anticipated bottle of Sophie & Max Selection No1, bottle numbered 120/150. I started with 2 ounces in a Schott Zwiezel Tritan Cognac glass. Pour presents a golden honey color. Initial nose of vanilla and leather with a bit of heat that eases. Taste is well balanced with a nice lingering finish. Wonderfully smooth but with enough character to appreciate the sophistication of the spirit. This is truly a great addition to my collection that I will be proud to share with others. I will not hesitate to add Sophie and Max's next Selection to my shelves.

Esquire

Dear Cognac Expert Team,

I’m sorry it’s taken me a while to get this review out to you, but I wanted to thoroughly sample Selection No. 1 before providing a review. After all, the Team put a lot of time, dedication, heart and soul into this project, and deserve more than a three sentence opinion.

Let me start with my personal bias. I am a fan of Cognac-Expert, and suspected this wouldn’t just be a good cognac, but a special one. Sophie and Max likely wouldn’t have put their names on the bottle unless the cognac inside was truly singular. Cognac-Expert’s commitment to quality and total engagement with all things cognac was the red-carpet for this XO’s introduction. And, with Jacques Petit at the helm, I knew this would be a treat.

I’m also a fan of small, artisan, handcrafted spirits. Yes, my cabinet has several big-name XO bottles within it, but residing alongside is an equal number of small-producer XOs. Another bias (sorry, genes at work) is that my palate tends to resonate most harmoniously with dark, layered XO cognacs, including Hennessy, De Luze, and Martell.

A word about the bottle. I must admit, it took me a tiny bit to warm up to Selection No. 1’s contemporary styled label, juxtaposed to the (quite special) old-world wax treatment on top. Admittedly, it does whisper modern elegance, simple yet stylish, with a nod to handcrafted tradition.

A long time ago in a cabinet far, far away, I used to relish the heavy, ornate and sometimes even cumbersome bottles of elite cognac. But really, it’s the liquid inside that matters. Yes, presentation counts, but I like to think I’ve graduated, moved past packaging and able to focus on substance far above form. After all, when you’re done with your beautiful Remy or Louis Royer bottle, what do you do with it? Recycle it? Perhaps use it for some type of art or craft? Or, more likely, just store it in a cabinet. (One of the nicest bottles out there is that of Martell‘s Cordon Bleu. Nothing fancy or over the top, just a simple, timeless shape and beautifully understated label...a classic.)


Now on to the task at hand…

Rarely can one pop a cork, slam a dram, and offer a valid opinion. Selection No. 1 cannot be hurried. Its personality indeed takes some time to develop. It requires time in the glass, gently warmed by the hand, to bring forth the most it has to offer. (I used a Riedel Vinum Hennessy Cognac glass.)


~Well balanced, full-bodied with light wood and vanilla tones.
~Medium nose, not overly complex; smooth, lingering finish.

Sélection No1 one of my favorites

We've known Jacques for years, and we've been loving his Cognacs since day 1. Jacques's X.O. Extra is one of my absolute favorites. It's extremely smooth to drink, and still offers a versatile range of aromas. I particularly enjoy the oakiness of the blend. It's perfect for a cozy winter day. Obviously I'm biased, but I really do believe that this Cognac is absolutely ravishing. And I love the contemporary bottle we designed : )

Max' Review

Obviously this is our own Cognac edition; so that's my clear disclaimer. I certainly like that our blend is from our neighbor, one of our longest friends in the cognac region and really authentic. We did several blind tastings to get where we wanted. Enjoy our first limited edition!
