Bio:

I am an opinionated old man. After half a century of cognac I still have a pedestrian palate.

Dark and Powerful

Highly Recommended 88 /100

A beautiful mahogany-tinged amber, an authentic color, it looks aged, not feeble, but ripened to the maximum.
The first nose is good, but within a few seconds a wonderful complexity emerges, deep scents, inviting scents, it’s hard not to dive right in.
After 10 minutes intensity has increased adding to the impression of rightness, of quality.
The first sip is powerful, just a tiny sip fills the mouth. Enough fire to illuminate the spices and fruits hiding in this cognac, as I drink a hint of chocolate appears in the nose. It is very smooth from start to finish, a finish that seems to have its own layers, long-lasting and delicious. This is a cognac to savor, enjoy the finish between every sip.

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?
