Baron Otard Fortis et Fidelis Cognac

Otard Cognac

A rather new blend by the old, traditional house of Baron Otard.This cognac consists of rare eaux-de-vie that have been kept for generations to craft Fort et Fidelis. These eaux-de-vie from time immemorial sublimate the precious character of this cognac. The royal Chateau of Cognac was bought by Baron Otard in 1795 for its unique ageing conditions: the thickness of its walls and the nearby Charente river guarantee a constant temperature and a good level of humidity. Taste:  Thanks to its great maturity, Fortis et Fidelis rolls out an opulent wealth of flavours. Delicate hints of prunes combine harmoniously with a subtle touch of rancio. A sweet crystallised fruit flavour lingers on the taste buds, while a pinch of spices caresses the palate. Draped in its deep amber robe, Fortis et Fidelis embodies serenity. The refinement of its aromas transforms each tasting into an intense and exclusive moment.

Tasting Notes

Baron Otard's review: The powerful, generous attack reveals dominant plum fragrances and walnut hints. Smooth spices, in particular nutmeg, magnify the entire composition. A sweet hint of candied orange mingles with the nobility of a robust leather scent in the finish.

With an ancient tradition tracing back to the middle ages, and to the great Norwegian Viking Ottar, this cognac dynasty has a unique history. Around the same time, the Chateau de Cognac was built in an entirely different place and culture. Eventually, the two histories would unite in the cognac house Otard, founded in 1795. Today, Otard Cognac is amongst the most recognized in quality and remains to take a strong position in the industry. The elegant bottles are a sign of tradition as well as modern values.

Things are looking up for Cognac Otard
23-09-2011 / Poor Cognac Otard – it’s had a pretty tough time of it over the years.  Suffering from various mergers and acquisitions, it was eventually almost swallowed up by the giant Bacardi when the group took over Martini.
