You need to be patient for this.

Highly Recommended 87 /100

This review is based on a sample bottle.
I have tried half of the sample when I received it and the other half after two weeks. Even in such a short amount of time, it has improved drastically in both the nose and palate.
This cognac focuses on the wood and spices notes without being too dry. A rather classic presentation. The finish is outstanding. This brand has been hiding behind the big names for too long, and deserves more attention!
I'm pretty sure if I got a whole bottle and give it more time to develop, I would have given it a higher rating.

De proeverij

Neus

Welke aroma's ruikt u bij het ruiken van de Cognac? Zijn er tonen van fruit of bloemen - wellicht is hij zoet? Is hij intens of eerder zwak - en het belangrijkste, past de neus bij de smaak en de afdronk? De neus is het belangrijkste onderdeel bij het proeven van Cognac.

Mond

A small sip: Allow your taste buds in the various areas of your mouth to distinguish the different flavours. This part of cognac tasting is described as ‘the palate’. Don’t just swallow it down; allow the liquid to touch all the regions of the mouth. Doing this is necessary as the taste buds pick up contrasting flavours in the different areas of the mouth; on the tip of your tongue to the sides, for example. Take a tiny sip to prep your palate for the sensory experience to come. Take a second larger sip, and gently roll the cognac around, etting it come into contact with every corner of your mouth. Focus on the perceived textural sensations. Are the sensations round and rich or fresh and elegant? Is the overall mouthfeel intense, balanced, disjointed, or lacking presence? In short, how does the cognac feel in your mouth?

Smaak

Quite simply, what do you taste as you gently roll the cognac around in your mouth? Pay close attention to any flavors of fruits, flowers, oak, and spices - or a complex combination of those elements. Are the flavors cohesive with the Nose and the Mouth, giving a sense of balance and complexity?

Afdronk

The ‘finish’ is the experience you get after you’ve swallowed the cognac. What flavours can you detect? Is it a flat or rough finish and rather sharp, or is it a slight 'punch' you like? How long does the finish last? Also think about overall balance: How does the finish compare to nose and taste?

Algehele indruk

Consider the Nose, Mouth, Taste, and Finish simultaneously - the cognac as a whole. Is there cohesion between the four categories, or does the cognac shine in some areas and appear dull in others? Quite simply, is the memory from the tasting experience one that will last your lifetime; is the memory good but nothing extraordinary; or is the cognac’s impact entirely forgettable?
